After her 7 long voyages, all Sinbad wants for Christmas is peace, a pal and a party in her home town of Perthepolis.
It’s a bit cramped on the houseboat she shares with her bookish brother, Finn Lad, and her mother, the totally gorgeous but currently single (awwww!) Dame Jackie Alltrades - but their neighbours and friends, The Tayside Beavers, have just been given protected status, so that’s good news, right? It’s certainly made Greta, a young, nature-loving visitor very happy - which sadly can’t be said of her bitter and twisted stepmother Vindicta …
Are the Beavers in danger? Is Sinbad’s peaceful Christmas dead in the water? Or is this the start of an adventure which takes everyone across stormy waters to an island of mystery and intrigue? And what’s the story with Hector the Collector? Is it only your taxes he’s after, or is there more to him than meets the eye?
All these questions will (probably) be answered as Perth’s favourite dame Barrie Hunter and crew welcome all mateys aboard for high seas high-jinks at the Perth Theatre panto!
