Tartuffe (20 Sept – 1 Oct 2016)

The Warehouse Studio Theatre
Tartuffe: A New American Satire is an original adaptation of Molière’s masterful play about hypocrisy. It is written by Jake Brandman, directed by Jeremy Zeegers and produced by the American Theatre Company.

This romp of a comedy will be performed in September 2016 during the heat of the American presidential election. Any similarity with current events is attributable to the genius of Molière and the enduring nature of human flaws.

ETC: The Little Prince (9-20 November 2016)

ETCetera, together with Les Colyriques, a well known Brussels musical theatre company, presents its next musical production, The Little Prince, a “Magic Opera” based on the famous book by Antoine de St-Exupéry, “Le Petit Prince”. Rachel Portman and Nicholas Wright wrote the songs, music and lyrics.

The book and the opera put up themes of flying, friendship, foxes, faithfulness and flowers, with an array of amazing human and non-human characters, and an appeal that is at least as much to adults as to children.

Les Colyriques and ETCetera have assembled some wonderful actors and singers, including both an adults’ and a children’s chorus, and some brilliant soloists and musicians.

The singing is in English (with French surtitles), with some narrative passages taken from the original book in French (with English surtitles).

BLOC: A Christmas Carol (24-27 Nov 2016)

A Christmas Carol – the Musical
De Kam, Wezembeek-Oppem
24 – 27 November 2016 at the Auderghem Cultural Centre Theatre

Based on the classic by Charles Dickens, written in 1843, Alan Menken’s musical version of the story is true to the original. Grumpy miserly Ebenezer Scrooge will have nothing to do with Christmas as everybody else in London is preparing to celebrate. His late partner, the equally miserly Jacob Marley, appears to him as a mournful ghost and foretells of the visit of three ghosts who will try to reform Scrooge so that he doesn’t end up like Marley. Once shown the error of his ways, Scrooge finally realises that the future ahead is not one he wants and he makes amends. It’s a ghost story about redemption.

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!
