Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs

Our annual pantomine for 2006 is "Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs" by Stephen Duckam. As usual this show will take place in Carnoustie High School's Theatre.

Snow White is eighteen and to Queen Malevolent’s rage is pronounced ‘fairest in the land’ by the Spirit of the Mirror. Handsome Prince Rupert arrives at court and is instantly attracted to Snow White...




Sequinned Suits and Platform Boots

Shakey Threwer invites the audience to take a trip back with him to the early seventies to the era of his youth, when he and his 14 year old friends tried to form a glam rock band. Poor Shakey's life (like any other 14-year-olds) doesn't quite go to plan.

The play is linked together with music of the time.

This Show was put on as a charity event for the following local societies and charities

Panbride Youth Group , Innes Wilson Trust , Tayside Special Olympics , Explorer Scouts , Carnoustie Walkers , Diabetics UK [Angus Branch] , Carnoustie Girl Guides




Lovers, Losers

This is the second of two short, complementary plays, Winners and Losers.
In the first play, the lovers are a young couple preparing for their final school exams and their imminent wedding. The girl is pregnant. Although they promise each other happiness, their deaths by drowning save them from a more likely destiny.
In the second play [this one], the lovers are older, but their passion, at first, is no less real. It is their marriage that brings its share of compromises and unhappiness.



One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest

One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest is set in the day room of a state mental hospital. It deals with the change in status quo when an inmate of the local prison feigns insanity to escape the work farm. Randle P McMurphy's arrival on the ward has a dramatic effect on his fellow inmates and life on the ward will never be the same again.

David Cheape chose the above play, based on the best selling novel by Ken Kesey and perhaps best remembered as an iconic film of the 1970’s starring Jack Nicholson, Danny DeVito, Christopher Lloyd and Louise Fletcher, as his 3rd production for CTC .

The original play premiered on Broadway in 1963 starring Gene Wilder and Kirk Douglas. It was revised from three to two acts in 1971 and ran for 1,025 performances, helping launch Danny DeVito into the public eye. In 2004 the play took the Edinburgh Festival and then the West End by storm starring Christian Slater, Mackenzie Crook and Frances Barber.
