The return of the UHI Inverness staff panto has been hailed a success – with it now set to be an annual tradition once again.

The latest edition – a version of Cinderella – was the first since 2019.

Written by the curriculum leader of science, computing and education Craig Lowther, directed by health, social care and science lecturer Heather Corpe, it starred curriculum and professional services staff from across the organisation.

Performances in the performing arts studio on campus featured slap-stick, in-jokes, singing and dancing.

Staff and students from the beauty department did a fantastic job of the make-up and hair for all the cast and the background tech work was carried out by the drama students.

Heather said: “It was really good fun, and it surpassed all our expectations. The audience was really wonderful and willingly participated in all the singing and dancing.

“I want to thank everyone involved, particularly the crew and the cast. Some of them had never acted or been on stage before and they all were amazing. It was great to see the panto back after four years and it will definitely become an annual Christmas tradition again.”
