She said: "The pantomime magic was brought safely to our classroom bubbles through Hopscotch's fantastic actors, costumes, and captivating props.

"The pupils engaged with interactive and shout out moments personalised to our school, which added to everyone's enjoyment."

Written by children’s playwright Zoë Bullock, Puss N' Boots features a positive eco message, solar-punk costumes, and plenty of seasonal silliness.

A theatre spokesperson said: "Puss N' Boots leaves you feline like the cat’s whiskers! The 55 minute, laugh out loud show features fun for all ages ... with Scottish twists.

"Audiences love our professional actors, contemporary stories, original songs, music, scenery and pantomime magic.

"It's tailored for local communities with personal touches like shout-outs, intervals, moments to boo and hiss to, and to sing-a-long with the characters."
