ASDA Arbroath are the sponsors of this year’s pantomime at the Webster Memorial Theatre after donating £4,000 to the production.

And without giving too much of the storyline away, the Puss in Boots pantomime producers have dressed the dame in an Asda themed costume and even written them into the script!

This year’s panto features, ITV’s Britain’s Got Talent semi-finalist and nursery rhyme crooner Edward Reid, Channel 4’s Musicality star Donna Hazelton and Pamela Byrne from BBC Scotland’s River City.

Opening night is tonight (Friday) and everybody is looking forward to it.

Asda Arbroath store manager Robert Wallace said: “It is brilliant to have the opportunity to be involved with the Webster Memorial Theatre panto. It’s becoming such a local tradition and many of the Asda Arbroath colleagues have started to go every year.”
