It’s tech week, which means our new festive show opens this weekend. Take a peek some recent rehearsal snaps!
Stuck on the sidelines of someone else’s story, the Ugly Sister is hackit, crabbit, and desperate for a change. Across the ballroom, fresh from her success in glowing up Cinderella, the Fairy Godmother’s senses start a-tingling that there’s a wish still to be granted… Join us in the magical world of Wondernauld for a delightfully daft festive treat for ages 7+.
The side characters in fairy tales are often the most fascinating. There’s always so much to ask about them; what makes them act the way they act and do the things they do? And while they often appear brash and loud, you tend to find that once you scratch the surface, there’s so much more going on with them than meets the eye and that they have the potential to help us learn more about ourselves than the so called main characters.Gary McNair, Jo Rush, Brian James O’Sullivan
