Children’s theatre company The McDougalls made a big splash in Campbeltown’s Victoria Hall last week, as a sold-out audience went along for a special under-the-sea-themed summer holiday show.

Rounding off their UK tour, the group dropped anchor in Campbeltown for an afternoon of fun, silliness, songs and dance on Thursday July 28, with their spectacular stage show packed with seaside songs.

They were joined by Morag the Rabbit and King Krab and had the Campbeltown crowd laughing all the way as they embarked on an underwater adventure.

With something fishy going on in the mystical underwater kingdom, The McDougalls went on the hunt for the missing Pearl of the Ocean.

On the way, they saved the sea from plastic litter, escaped the pesky piranha and ended up rocking out at the Rock ‘n’ Roll Pool.

After the show, the children, who were encouraged to attend dressed as their favourite sea creatures, had the chance to meet stars Max and Auntie Aggie in a special meet and greet session.

A spokesperson for organisers West Kintyre Promotions CIC said: ‘We are so excited about the turnout in Campbeltown and to get a sell-out was just brilliant.

‘Our thanks to liveArgyll and Victoria Hall staff and to everyone who came along and, as Max announced on stage, The McDougalls will be back in Campbeltown with their special festive show later in the year.’
