Kincardine Theatre Guild Goes to the Ball

Kincardine | by Megan Johnson  

Opening night will be November 14 at 8 p.m., at the the Kincardine Centre of the Arts

The Kincardine Theatre Guild will see if the glass slipper fits as it presents Cinderella : A Pantomime.

Co-Director Bonnie Bryan says the British pantomime is an adult play disguised as a children's play.

"It's nothing like the Disney one at all...other than the original Cinderella story does come through; there 's lots of extra characters that add humour and there's the audience...in a Pantomime the audience is also a part of the show," says Bryan.

The Kincardine Theatre Guild has been performing for over 35 years and makes use of the former Kincardine Town Hall space, known as the Kincardine Centre of the Arts and boasts a membership of over 100 people.

"We have several new people in this production that are on stage... in leading roles... and we're delighted to have them on board," says the Director.
"We've been rehearsing since the beginning of September, three times a week. There's 27 casts members and probably twice that many in crew."
She adds the cast age ranges from "7 years old to 70-ish".

A mix of evening and matinee performances' begin Thursday November 14 and go until November 30; with 11 performances planned in all.

Ticket and show information can be here at the Kincardine Theatre Guild Website.

The thespians showcase three different productions throughout the year; a Dramatic play "The Photograph" written by Joan Burrows, will be performed in February.

Bryan says they will start auditions soon and rehearsals after Christmas.
