A Wish for Jamie was one of the most popular Christmas pantomimes staged in Scotland, originally at the Alhambra Theatre in 1960, then on tour, and then revived in 1964 at the King's Theatre. Produced by Stewart Cruickshank and Freddie Carpenter, it was a romantic musical set in the Highlands and starred Kenneth McKellar as Jamie, along with Rikki Fulton, Fay Lenore and Reg Varney. Its sequel, A Love for Jamie ran for two seasons at the Alhambra in 1962 and 1963.
