The countdown is most definitely on and Ballycastle’s Quadrangle Productions are in full swing preparing this year’s Christmas show for their audiences.
Since the start of November they have taken everything up a notch and are now totally immersed in all things pantomime. It’s amazing how quickly time flies when you’re having fun!
“So, as the 19th and 20th December fast approach, we wanted to let people know where they can get tickets to see ‘The Adventures of Little Red’ and also tell you about your opportunity to get discounted tickets.
“On Sunday 29th November from 11am to 5pm Quadrangle will be taking up residence at the Naturally North Coast and Glens Christmas Market, which is being held in the Marine Hotel in Ballycastle. During that event, anyone who buys a ticket for our show will be treated to a discounted price of £6 per ticket, instead of the usual price of £7.50. Also, on Thursday 3rd December we will be appearing in Q Cutts Barber shop in the Diamond, Ballycastle, where we will joining in with all of the fun at the Christmas lights switch on.
“Again, at this event, you will be able to get your discounted tickets, so why not join us! Both events are sure to be wonderful, with all of the beautiful crafts stalls at Market and the festive atmosphere as we celebrate the tree being lit up for the first time, so come on down and don’t miss out,” said a spokesperson.
‘The Adventures of Little Red’ which is Quadrangle’s Pantomime for 2015, is a family-friendly, fun, comedy pantomime which has something for everyone. The story begins at home with ‘Red’ and her parents. Red and her folks don’t often see eye to eye as they make her do far too many chores for her liking, but unfortunately, ‘while she lives under their roof - she’ll obey their rules’!
Meanwhile, granny has formed a firm friendship with the local wolf and is helping him to overcome some unhealthy eating habits.
After an exciting turn of events in which Gran comes in to some money, Red’s parents plot a scheme to take the dosh for themselves and that’s when the real fun begins! Will granny be able to outsmart Red’s pesky parents and be re-united with her granddaughter? You’ll just have to come along to see!
The cast of this year’s show is made up of Ciara Mc Mullan and Graice Cunningham (sharing the role of Little Red), Kellyann McKillen (Little Red’s Mother), Darren McGuigan (Little Red’s Father), Ronan Mateer (Hansel the Narrator), Ria Mulholland (Gretel the Narrator), Dominic McAfee (Mr Wolf) and Caroline McAfee (Little Red’s Gran).
Quadrangle Productions chairperson had this to say about the talent: “The cast of show this year is made up primarily of young people who have committed themselves for the last four months to making this show a real Christmas feel good performance.
“The dedication that each member has shown to attending reads and rehearsals, learning lines, helping to create the set and sort costume etc has been nothing short of amazing and I am so proud to be working with them. I am astounded by the level of talent that this young cast has shown in preparing something which takes incredible amounts of effort. These young people are doing everything possible to ensure that ‘The Adventures of Little Red’ will be a show to remember and will give everyone who sees it, a real lift for the winter ahead. “
