ECC Panto: Robin Hood & the Babes in the Wood (18-20 January, 2019)

The journey to Sherwood Forest has begun. ECC are proud to present Robin Hood and the Babes in the Wood which will be performed in Auderghem Cultural Centre from January 18-20, 2019.

This hilarious never-ever-before-seen version of the traditional tale promises to be one of the most spectacular family pantomimes performed on the Brussels stage.

The evil Sheriff of Nottingham hatches a wicked plan to marry Maid Marian for her money. But first he has to get rid of the Babes – Maid Marian’s Belgian cousins. It’s down to our most famous outlaw Robin Hood to save the day, with a little help from his Merry Men, his trusty steed and the lovely Maid Marian.

Enjoy plenty of songs, dances, stunning scenery, special effects and superb costumes…topped off by all-round slapstick and silliness. Festive entertainment does not come any better!

Tickets are €16 for adults, €12 for children and are available from www.thelittleboxoffice.com/ecc.

Last year’s panto was over 90% sold out, so book early to avoid disappointment!

ETCetera presents ‘Figaro Gets Divorced’ by Ödon von Horvath.

What follows is part comedy, part drama, and deals with, among other things, themes of immigration, racism, adultery, and hairdressing.

Directed by Diana Cardona, it is performed mainly in English with some scenes in French or German (with surtitles).

“I don’t believe in ‘original sin.’ I don’t believe in ‘guilt.’ I don’t believe in villains or heroes — only right or wrong ways that individuals have taken, not by choice but by necessity or by still-uncomprehended influences in themselves, their circumstances, and their antecedents.” Tennessee Williams

This amateur production of “A Streetcar Named Desire” is presented by special arrangement with SAMUEL FRENCH, LTD.

ITG: Philadelphia, Here I Come! (26-30 March 2019)

You’re 25 years old and about to leave everything – and everyone – you have ever known or loved. You are leaving for America tomorrow, a New World you only know from films, music, and a couple of rather annoying relatives. The only company you will have on the trip is your inner voice; a voice that can speak the truth in a way that your outer voice, sadly, can’t …

Philadelphia, Here I Come! is simultaneously set within the confines of the small fictional Irish town of Ballybeg and in the limitless universe that is the inner voice and mind of Gareth O’Donnell, a young man on the cusp of emigrating to Philadelphia. A classic tragicomedy that established Brian Friel’s reputation as an innovative playwright.

Welcome to an evening of laughter, sadness and recognition of what it is like to fly the nest.
