Well that's opening night over and we're all well and truly on the yellow brick road to Oz now folks! Cast and crew were brimming with excitement over the opening!
If you were there tonight we hope you enjoyed yourselves as much as we did, and we're really looking forward to entertaining all the rest of you lucky ticket holders over the next few shows!
So get your best munchkin outfits on and come join us on the journey to Oz!
Well, the finishing touches are being put to the set, the lights and sound are being tested, the music's ready to go, costumes are nearly finished, and the cast are (frantically) revising those lines and songs, as we're really near to opening night.
With just a couple of rehearsals left (our technical and dress rehearsals to go), the cast and crew are really feeling the excitement mounting, and we're looking forward to seeing you all at the show next week.
So to whet your appetite, here's a little picture of something from the set - I'm sure you'll spot it when you see it in all it's glory during the show! See you all very soon!
Well thanks to all our fabulous supporters we've now SOLD OUT all five performances of the show - and that's a whole three weeks before the opening night!
We're as amazed as ever at the great support you show the club, and we're promising to make this the very best show we can. We've got some dedicated cast and crew, some old faces (some older than others!), and some new. Plus with us just completing a big upgrade of our sound and lighting systems, we're really hoping that this year is going to be something extra special and we can't wait for opening night.
So while we paint the sets, put up the lights, polish those performances, and perfect those songs and dances, we hope you'll be looking forward to this years panto as much as we are.
See you all in three weeks!
Well tickets for both Friday night and Saturday matinée are now SOLD OUT, and there are only a few left for each of the other days, so if you haven't got yours yet you need to hurry as they're going quicker than Toto down the Yellow Brick Road!
Well folks - the moment you've all been waiting for - yes tickets for this years Culter Panto, "The Wizard of Oz" are on sale from Monday 28th October, by contacting the Village Hall. Just pop in or telephone 01224 734371 to get yours.
Over the last few months the club has also been investing in a whole load of new lighting and sound equipment, which our technical crew are eager to show off, so we'll have some extra special tricks up our sleeves which should make this years performance something never seen before in Culter!
So remember - don't delay, book today! Tickets always sell out fast so don't wait until it's too late, or you might miss this years fantastic show!
I think the dedicated team from the theatre club should just about have recovered now after the weekend of baking and serving the teas at the Peterculter Heritage Hall, to raise funds for the club's sound and lighting project.
We had some wonderful baking done by volunteers from the club - and we kept it coming to feed all the visitors to the hall on both Saturday and Sunday afternoons. We had a display of photographs from some of our past panto's and performances, plus we had our leaflets out again to spread the word about the Theatre Club and how people can get involved. We were also able to run a bottle stall on Sunday afternoon too - so quite a few people went away with a prize or two as well as having their tea and cake!
So a great big THANK YOU to all our wonderful supporters, club members and the visitors who came along and enjoyed a cup of tea and a fine piece with us. We managed to raise an absolutely wonderful £622.30 - which really means a lot and goes a long way to helping pay for the new equipment we're buying and installing as part of our sound and lighting "modernisation" project. Rest assured, if you come along to the panto this Christmas you'll be able to see a lot of the new equipment in action - it promises to be something very special indeed!
