Auderghem Cultural Centre,  Boulevard du Souverain 183, 1160 Brussels.
20:00, 13 January 2017
13:30 & 17:00, 14-15 January 2017
Following last year’s magnificent production of Dick Whittington and his Magical Cat, the ECC team are proud to present this year’s panto – Cinderella!
Come on down to Hardup Hall, to join Cinderella and her best friend Buttons! Cinderella always makes the best of everything, but her horrible stepmother and hideous stepsisters try to make sure she is as miserable as possible! And while Cinderella sweeps the floors of Hardup Hall, at the Royal Palace a certain Prince Charming dreams of finding someone who will love him for who he truly is…
Bringing the Prince and Cinderella into each other’s lives will take some real magic – so it’s lucky for all of us that Cinderella has a fairy godmother! But with two inept trainee fairies looking after things, get set for a whole lot of topsy-turvy silliness on the way to Cinderella’s happy ever after.
With enchanted pumpkins, sparkling slippers, toe-tapping songs and loads of fun, this brand-new production is sure to delight young and old alike. Oh yes it is!

ITG: The Cripple of Inishmaan (7-11 Feb 2017)

poster-cripple-reduced

The Cripple of Inishmaan by Martin McDonagh, set on a remote island off the west coast of Ireland in 1934, is a dark comedy. Inspired by a real event – the filming of The Man of Aran on Inishmore in 1934 – the story follows the impact of the news of the filming on young Cripple Billy and the other inhabitants of Inishmaan. Could this be their escape from life on Inishmaan where the tedium is broken only by the gossip and stories put about by Johnnypateenmike?

Cruel, sad, sometimes violent, yet achingly funny, the story reveals the characters in a way that makes you realise that people are not always as they seem.

The Cripple of Inishmaan will be directed by Noreen Doyle, and performed in the Warehouse Studio Theatre from 7 – 11 February 2017.

Tickets (€15 ) available now
