Cinema’s monthly musicals!

Did you know that the cinema in Oban has started a new event called monthly musicals?  Once a month on a Sunday they are showing popular musical films.  Amazing right?!

The first one was a great success so lets do our bit to support this. The next one is Grease on Sunday 28th October at 5pm.

Don’t need much more of an excuse to have a singalong with like-minded folk!

See you there.

Earlybird tickets now on sale for Fiddler on the Roof

After the triumph of recent shows including Monty Python’s Spamalot and Cole Porter’s Anything Goes we return to bring you the moving tale of Tevye and his family in the classic musical Fiddler on the Roof.

This much-loved show tells the tale of milkman Tevye, a firm believer in traditional Jewish values.  The time has come for his elder daughters to find husbands but they have different ideas than their father on who would make an appropriate match.  This family tension is mirrored by a nation on the brink of revolution with anti-Semitism growing in Russia under the Tsar. Although set at the turn of the 20th century this tale resonates today with the plight of refugees around the world.

With hits including Tradition, Matchmaker and If I Were A Rich Man this heartfelt story has something for everyone.

The show runs at the Corran Halls from Thursday 21st – Saturday 23rd February 2019 with a preview performance on Wednesday 20th February. Doors open at 7pm with curtain up at 7.30pm each night.

Tickets will go on sale at the Corran Halls in January however secure the best seats by buying using our earlybird offer available now with prices from £6. Small transaction fee applies.  Use promocode FIDDLER10 to receive 10% discount (excludes preview night and applies to online sales only).

Hilary going pink for Breast Cancer Now on 19th Oct

Hilary going pink for Breast Cancer Now on 19th Oct

Hilary will be raising funds for Breast Cancer Now at rehearsal on Thursday 19th October as a Wear it Pink event. Anyone wanting to support this can wear pink, yes, even the guys, and give a £2.00 donation.  She will also be making some pink fairy cakes and for an extra 50p you can hopefully enjoy one.

Fairy Good is pretty convinced she can nail this one!

See you there in pink.

Thanks, Ellie (sent on behalf of Hilary)
