Campbeltown Grammar School actors have lined up some good gags for the school’s Christmas production.

Last week drama support assistant Lynda Law and S5 pupil Michael Stevens made more than £650 in a morning to buy new costumes for the pantomime ‘Ali Baba and the Four Tea Thieves‘.

The pair sold raffle tickets at the entrance to the Co-op for a chance to win a theatre inspired vanilla sponge, buttercream and jam cake.

Ms Law said: ‘We have moved into a new school building and it was thought there should be some fresh costumes for drama.

‘Rehearsals started in August immediately after the summer break,’ said Michael, who plays one of the show’s baddies, Evil Uncle Jalel.

The pantomime opens on December 6 and runs to December 8.

The Co-op's Courtney McCallum picks the winning ticket.
