Cinderella has been written as a pantomime to help get everyone into the Christmas Spirit. With the help of a magical set and wonderful costumes Quadrangle Productions will transform the McAlister Hall into the perfect intimate venue for this fairytale performance.
Quadrangle Productions Chairperson explained: “This project is going to require a lot of commitment from anyone who gets involved but it’s going to be a whole lot of fun! Ballycastle hasn’t seen a pantomime in the town for a very long time and we thought it was time to bring the tradition back. We hope that the performances will reach audiences across Moyle and so would encourage people from all over Moyle to come and audition for the show. If you have any interest in theatre or performing at all, come and try out as we can ensure there will be plenty of laughs!”
Quadrangle Productions are also looking for people to help out backstage and front of house so if you don’t fancy performing on the stage get in touch and help out behind it!
