Kirkcud­bright pan­tomime show dates

The Galloway News - - DISTRICT NEWS -

It’s that time of year again!

This year’s Kirkcud­bright Academy pan­tomime pro­duc­tion is Alibaba and the Forty Thieves which will be per­formed in the Cochran Hall next Thurs­day and Fri­day, De­cem­ber 13 and 14.

Drama teacher Jo Jack­son-Bon­ning said: “The stu­dents have been work­ing very hard since the start of term in Au­gust to en­sure that the usual high

stan­dard is main­tained and our au­di­ences have a su­perb time.

“We have a splen­did group of per­form­ers who are get­ting so much from de­vel­op­ing skills that will help them in the out­side world. It’s al­ways more than just en­ter­tain­ment; it gives them greater con­fi­dence in life and a set of mem­o­ries which will last a life­time.”

The show is a col­lab­o­ra­tion be­tween the cre­ative arts fac­ulty: drama, mu­sic

and art, show­cas­ing the stu­dents’ skills and tal­ents in these ar­eas, from ac­tors on the stage, artists do­ing back­drops and props and a live mu­sic band.

She added: “We are look­ing for­ward to per­form­ing to full houses on both nights kick-start­ing the Christ­mas sea­son with a show to re­mem­ber.”

The show starts at 7pm both days and tick­ets are £5, £4 for con­ces­sions and £16 for a fam­ily ticket.
