It's that time of year again, and tickets are now on sale for the annual Culter Panto! This year we're putting on Aladdin at Culter Village hall from 5th to 8th December. Don't delay as tickets sell fast!
“When the princess Yasmin ventures out of the palace on her own, she meets Aladdin the street urchin, and love is in the air, but what will his mum, Widow Twankey, and his brother, Wishy-Washy think? And more importantly what will the Emperor's reaction be!?
Meanwhile the evil wizard Abanazer is on a quest to find a magic lamp that will grant his every desire, and he needs Aladdin to help him - but he definitely isn't about to share the prize!”
With loads of laughs, and a script specially written by our very own Culter Theatre Club members, this show promises to be a hilarious magic carpet ride of fun for all ages!
Tickets are available online with payment by debit or credit card. Alternatively, you may purchase tickets in person from Culter Village Hall. Please note that once booked, tickets cannot be refunded.

You may have noticed our new Culter Theatre Club logo, which is now on our Facebook, Twitter and Website. For many years we'd just used a basic "theatre masks" icon to represent the club, but recently we decided we should have our very own logo!
The new logo uses the letters "CTC" in a bold design that shows everything linked together. The red colour stands for the stage curtains, the yellow the stage lights, and the purple for the Grampian mountains. The black areas are also an integral part of the logo - as they represent our amazing back stage crew and all the people who work away without being seen. In our logo they're right there making the rest of the logo work and just as important as all the rest.
We've also launched our new website, with a fresh new theme that is mobile friendly. Our previous site had stood us well for many years, but didn't work well on mobile phones, whereas our new design should be much better when displayed on either a desktop, tablet or phone!
