Starbright Entertainments return LIVE at Motherwell Theatre with another Easter Eggs-travaganza, RAPUNZEL!

    This is a brand new hair-raising pantomime all about the missing Princess with magical hair. The show promises to be packed with hair-larious jokes, toe tapping tunes and spectacular scenery and costumes. Motherwell Panto Legend Ian ‘Sheepie’ Smith is back along with Easter Panto regulars Gary Morrison as Nanny Fanny and the gorgeous Holly Reynolds as Rapunzel.


    Due to a change in schedule for Easter 2022, we have postponed our production of Mother Goose.




    Join Alice as she journeys down the rabbit hole and into the heart of Wonderland, meeting all kinds of curious creatures along the way. However, she’ll need to be careful to avoid the Queen of Hearts if she wants to keep a-head! Will she ever manage to get home? Will the White Rabbit ever be on time? Will the Hatter ever actually sell a hat?

    Featuring an incredible cast, hilarious jokes, toe tapping tunes and a sprinkling of magic and mess – this really is the perfect treat for all the family. Also starring sensational vocalist Holly Reynolds as Alice, Kilmarnock’s panto funny-man Gary Morrison as the Mad Hatter, magician and illusionist Louise Andrée Douglas as the Cheshire Cat and back by popular demand, Fraser Boyle as the Queen of Hearts.


    Motherwell Theatre teamed up with Starbright Entertainments to bring you this unique and interactive production starring Motherwell Panto Legend Ian ‘Sheepie’ Smith.

    Lost in Pantoland is a digital adventure, reminiscent of the classic ‘choose your own adventure’ books. It is a new, fun and interactive way to experience the magic of the Motherwell Theatre panto from the comfort of your own home.

    Sheepie has set off on a quest to harness the magic of every pantomime to become powerful enough to banish King Rat, who’s trying to take over pantoland without any fairies, heroes or audiences getting in his way. Sheepie needs your help to make the right decisions along the way and will ask you to make choices that determine which way the story goes!


    Motherwell’s favourite comic – Ian ‘Sheepie’ Smith goes head to head with his Mammy, playing a series of challenges to win those all important points.

    After each challenge, contestants will face – SPLATFACE! But who will get splatted? And who will be the messiest at the end?
    This show is also able to be booked LIVE for private events, conferences, company parties and so much more. Get in touch for more information.

    E. Nesbit’s well-loved tale is brought to life in this new adaptation by Woolford and John.

    Roberta, Peter and Phyllis live in a comfortable house in London until their father, who works for the government, is falsely accused of selling state secrets and is imprisoned for five years. The children and their mother have no choice but to leave their home and move to a quiet little cottage next to a railway in Oakworth, Yorkshire.
