Royal Doo at the King's

WHO had a Scooby it would be so much fun at the King's Theatre? Herald assistant editor Alan Muir took his own Mystery Machine out for a drive with the family...

The world premiere of Scooby-Doo and the Pirate Ghost sailed into the King's Theatre in Glasgow recently – and it was a splash hit.

A packed King's welcomed Scooby, Shaggy and the gang for a colourful, crazy show.

I was there with my children – Jack and Ben – and they loved it ... and so did I.

They're both under six so it's the perfect age to introduce them to the world of the theatre.

The King's is an amazing venue and the look of wonder as they craned their necks to take in the splendour of their surroundings was a joy to behold.

Scooby-Doo was the ideal way to show them the delights of live entertainment, with an all-singing and dancing "spook-tastic" show.

Scooby-Doo, Shaggy, Velma, Daphne and Fred took to the stage to great cheers.

The beloved Hanna-Barbera characters were bought to vivid life, arriving with their unique, comical brand of detective work and super scary fun.

A tropical island was the scene for Scooby's newest live adventure, but it was far from peaceful and idyllic when the Mystery Inc. gang landed.

Ghostly goings-on and supernatural scenarios, mixed with hilarious physical comedy, groovy music and magical effects, kept Jack, Ben and the rest of the audience happily spooked and on the edge of their seats for 90 minutes.
