Oscar and the Highland Castle

4 October - 11 November 2017

 
  Oscar and the Highland Castle  
 
 

It’s 1307. Scotland lies defeated and Robert the Bruce is hiding from the English.....

Answering a call for help, Oscar the mouse leaves his attic home and heads for Loch Ness where he finds Incy Wincy Spider among the ruins of an old castle. Mysteriously swept back in time, Oscar joins Incy’s campaign to free the castle from English rule and restore Scotland’s independence!

Here, one of Scotland's most evocative folk tales is imaginatively re-told with wit and charm, using a combination of ultraviolet effects, shadow puppetry and upbeat music. A truly memorable and inspirational performance.

“Having a storyline that tied in with our current Environmental Studies and PSD topics was a real bonus. Everyone in the whole school thoroughly enjoyed the performance.”
