Quadrangle Productions are very excited to announce that rehearsals have now started and things are well and truly under way in preparation for this Christmas!
Beginning on Wednesday 17th December there will six performances (excluding Friday 19th) of this fantastic pantomime which has been collaboratively written by Quadrangle’s Chairperson Caroline McAfee and long standing member Lee McLaughlin.
Cinderella, which is based on the original fairytale has been reworked for a modern audience, with lots of engaging characters to keep everyone entertained.
After two months of auditions the cast has finally been found and consists of the following people: Kellyann McKillen who is playing Cinderella and Lee McLaughlin who is playing Prince Theo.
Carol Warren who is playing Mrs Grimm and Caroline McAfee and Michael Duffin who are playing her daughters (the ugly step sisters) Mildred and Gertrude. Then there’s Dominic McAfee who is playing King George and Daniel Gormley as the Royal Advisor.
We have Deirdre Goodlad playing Wanda the Wonderful and lastly but by no means least we have Danielle Brown and Sandy Cole playing the much needed narrators, Jack and Jill.
The Chairperson of Quadrangle Productions and one of the script writers for Cinderella, Caroline McAfee, had this to say: “Both Lee and I are so happy with how the script has turned out.
“It really all came to life a couple of weeks ago when we had our first read as a full cast and we heard all of the characters come alive. We got a real buzz from that and know that everyone else will too.
“ We hope that our performance will match all of those modern day Disney/Pixar movies like Shrek etc that have something for everyone both young and old and this is why we’ll be encouraging everyone to come along!”
More details will be released in the coming weeks on how you can get your tickets for what is sure to be a fantastic experience, but for now the cast want you to know that they are working very hard to ensure that this will be a Christmas to remember!
