Clachan primary pupils brought a classic fairy tale with a Scottish twist to the school stage for its festive show.
At the end of last term children performed in ‘Cindereilidh’, a local take on the classic Cinderella.
The pantomime was set in Clachan, and instead of a grand ball, the cast attended a village ceilidh.
Lots of laughs came courtesy of the ugly sisters, Skippy and Nessie, while Cindereilidh and the prince danced a St Bernard’s Waltz.
Breaking with tradition, instead of a step-mother and a fairy godmother, Clachan had a step-father and The Godfather.
The Godfather also acted as a narrator bringing a magical feel to the evening, especially in the scene where the pumpkin transformed to the carriage and when he placed a magic spell on the house.
The school’s two P1 pupils played Buttons the Cat and Ron Achan, advisor to the prince.
A school spokesperson said: ‘We had a full house and the audience took part in all the traditional panto fun.’
