The Tron‘s Christmas panto comes from Victor and Barry this year and shows us the two glam-am-dram stars in their precocious youth. Frustrated by life in their one-parent family in Kelvinside living with an absent-minded scientific father who can‘t remember which is which - they run away to the Botanical (iardens and become caught up in a battle against an evil scientist bent on ruling the world. At the opening of the run audience participation could have been better used and there was sometimes a strain between the ‘Victor and Barry" personac and the story. Otherwise. however. this is a funny and well-crafted panto. even almost bridging the gap between the trad panto and the Christmas fairy tale. with its strong storyline and satirical use oftrad panto gags: a reluctant dame (an excellent Finlay Welsh) and tongue-in-cheek slapstick scenes. (‘atch it quick before it finishes.
