WINE AND FOLK

Posted 29th April 2016.

Directed by Rachel Parker & Alex Teligadas.

Musical Direction Philip Dutton.

Performed 11th to 14th May 2011

at Gasperich Parish Hall.

A Pirate Productions production.

The forth in the “Wine and…” series.

A wonderful and eclectic mixture of allsorts, from John Denver’s Country Roads and a couple from Steeleye Span; Widdicombe Fair was the first sing-a-long, but certainly not the last, with the Irish song Wild Rover and All Around My Hat (Steeleye Span again) getting the audience going no end. Like comparing chalk with cheese, it was difficult to pick out the “best”, but Silva Lohmus must get “Vocals of the Night” for her amazing rendition of the Estonian folk song “Tuulevaiksel Ool”, with the exuberance of Alex Teligadis truly magnificent as solo and in a group.

DICK WHITTINGTON

Posted 14th May 2016.

By Two Shades of Blue.

Performed 21st to 23rd January 2011

at the Château de Bettembourg.

A Two Shades of Blue production.

Dick Whittington comes to Luxembourg

After the successful Aladdin in 2009, Two Shades of Blue announce the return of pantomime to Luxembourg. Featuring a very similar cast, very similar jokes, we bring the best of British pantomime abroad once again!

Join our hero Dick Whittington as he comes to London to seek his fortune, with only a few possessions and a magical cat called Tommy. He’s heard that London’s streets are paved with gold, but London is suffering a terrible plague of rats, lead by the evil King Rat, who is set on claiming the city for his own.

Can Dick Whittington be just the boy London needs?

Can he defeat King Rat?

Can he win the heart of Alice, his true love?

Can he stop Sarah the Cook from Singing?

Music and mayhem, songs and slosh, tons of puns and maybe just a little bit of magic…

Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls…

IT’S PANTO TIME
