Children under 16 years old are invited to attend a drop-in session at any library in Angus on the first three Saturdays in November where they can draw a tower so Rapunzel can let her hair down.
There are three age categories – five years and under, 6-10-years-old and 11-16-years-old, with one family ticket to be won in each category.
The competition gives youngsters the chance to see the opening night of this year’s panto, on Saturday, December 10, for free with their families, when they will also have the chance to be photographed with the cast.
Winning entries will also be printed in this year’s pantomime programme.
Templates for the competition can also be collected from the mobile library.
Sylvia Main, Children and Families lead with ANGUSalive said: “We can’t wait to see the creative towers that are drawn for the competition by kids in Angus. Drop into your local library any of the three Saturday mornings to create your impressive towers for Rapunzel, for your chance to win VIP tickets to our brilliant Panto this December. If you get your books from a mobile library you can collect a sheet that you can complete and return to the mobile or hand in to any Library.”
The entries will be judged by JJ Christine, the panto’s producer and choreographer, who said: “I’m very much looking forward to judging the drawing competition being run in ANGUSalive’s libraries. I can’t wait to see what amazing designs the children of Angus come up with. I’m sure they’ll be fantastic. We’ll then look forward to welcoming the winners and their families along to see our fantastic panto!”
The cast of ‘Rapunzel featuring Puss in Boots’ includes Chloe Foston who plays the evil Queen, Aaron Usher returns as the Dame for the fifth time, Rodney Matthew as the Fairy Godfather, Finlay McKillop as Puss and Eve Buglass as the beautiful Rapunzel.
The closing date for entries to the competition is noon on Tuesday, November 22. Further details about the competition and this year’s pantomime can be found at www.angusalive.scot/whats-on.
