Student Panto at HMT

Cheesy lines, outlandish characters and Doric charm are three reasons to see the Aberdeen Student Show’s spring Panto.

Around a quarter of the stars have starred in some of the North-east’s finest community pantomimes. Of the 45-strong Mary Torphins cast, more than 10 have starred in local pantos in Peterhead, Fraserburgh and Inverurie, as well as the Aberdeen Arts Centre festive treat.

They have played the roles of fairytale princesses, adventurous heroes, dastardly villains and silly sidekicks to name but a few.

And they’ll be putting their panto acting expertise to good use in the student show Mary Torphins – a parody of the much-loved Disney classic Mary Poppins – which is being staged at His Majesty’s Theatre, Aberdeen from Wednesday to Saturday, April 18 to 21.

Tickets for Mary Torphins are available online at, by phone at 01224 641122 and at Aberdeen Box Office at the Music Hall and His Majesty’s Theatre.
