Pinocchio - Panto 2014

December 02, 2014 for 5 performances

Panto 2014 Poster

Pinocchio was made as a puppet by the toy maker Geppetto for Stromboli, the evil owner of a travelling puppet theatre. The Good Fairy decides to grant Geppetto’s wish that Pinocchio would be a real boy and enlists Jiminy Cricket to be his conscience. With Stromboli desperate to get his hands on the special puppet, Jiminy and friends try to keep Pinocchio safe and out of Stromboli’s clutches.

The panto will run from Sunday 30th November to Saturday 6th December 2014 (no performance on Monday 1st December), including two afternoons matinee shows on Sunday 30th November and Saturday 6th December.

Tickets priced at £9 per adult and £8 for concessions, will be available from "The Fobel Shop" Queen st Carnoustie from Saturday 8th November.

Remarkably we have managed to avoid putting up our prices for 6 years in row, so come along and cheer the goodies and boo the baddies.

Behind the Scenes

A few years ago the theatre club put on one of a collection of entertaining plays called “Deckchairs”.

This involved making the audience believe they were on a warm, sunny, sandy beach in summer. No mean feat for late September!

Although “Deckchairs” had only two people on stage at any one time, a veritable army of people had collaborated over the previous months to create that warm, sunny, sandy beach in summer.

They covered many areas and included:- producer, stage manager, stage crew, set designer, lighting manager, sound engineer, props, wardrobe, make-up, publicity, ticket and box office staff, front of house manager, the list is endless.

Without these people there would have been no show. So, remember, belonging to a theatre club can encompass many different interests, from simply going to the Theatre, through to set design!

If you are looking for a new interest, why not get in touch. And if treading the boards or making costumes etc is your dream then perhaps we can help make it a reality. Let us make good use all those hidden talents.
