Jack and the Beanstalk

Wednesday 3 December - Wednesday 24 December

Jack and the Beanstalk

After the great success of SLEEPING BEAUTY in 2012, Angus Council is delighted to welcome back award winning playwright and director JOHN BINNIE for the Webster Memorial Theatre's production of JACK AND THE BEANSTALK.

Life is tough down on the farm. Dopey Jack and his celebrity daft Mither can't pay the rent. They are forced to sell the family pet - Daisy the cow. Luckily Jack sells Daisy in exchange for magic beans. Suddenly at the bottom of his garden, an enormous beanstalk shoots up overnight.

Action, adventure and romance, JACK AND THE BEANSTALK has it all. A traditional Family Panto with a professional cast who perform alongside local youngsters to bring alive the larger than life characters of JACK AND THE BEANSTALK. With loads of laughs, audience participation, beautiful singing, and eye-catching designs there's something for all the family.

Come along and be entertained in true pantomime style and enjoy the Webster Memorial Theatre's professional family pantomime adventure.

Be sure to climb up the beanstalk with us this Christmas. Book your tickets today.

Sleeping Beauty is a well polished and highly entertaining Panto... with belly laughs and silliness a plenty... the slick production had everything the family Panto needs... Johnston Ralston, Arbroath Herald 2012

The Dublin Legends

The Dublin Legends

In 2012 the Legendary Irish Folk group THE DUBLINERS celebrated 50 glorious years in the music business by receiving a Lifetime Achievement Award at the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards.

Sadly they suffered a body blow with the sudden death of founding member "Banjo" Barney McKenna. Quite naturally this tragic occurrence meant that the remaining members chose to sit down and decide upon the band’s future and decided that... "It’s Too Late To Stop Now".

THE DUBLIN LEGENDS have toured the world since then to huge critical acclaim performing their classic songs and ballads; Whiskey in The Jar, Dirty Old Town, The Wild Rover, The Rare Auld Times, The Irish Rover, Black Velvet Band and many more.

Join The Dublin Legends for a memorable, entertaining evening.

69 Shades Of Black

Saturday 25 April 2015 7.30pm

69 Shades Of Black
Starring Faye Tozer of STEPS as 'Christina Black'

Boring, vanilla, Horlick's swiller William Shight’s most interesting trait has always been his snigger inducing name. Up until now that is!

Since landing his dream job at one of the country’s top advertising agencies, things have taken a nipple twisting turn for the shocking. Christina Black, the company director, has taken a shine to our William and attempts to seduce him with an indecent proposal.

Clearly overwhelmed by the attention and having no friends or family to turn to, poor William decides the only thing he can do is seek the advice of the only two men in his life he can trust, the hilariously argumentative Gabriel and Gideon...his sex conscience.

Willy tries in vain to resist but in the end relents and signs a 69 page contract, the one Chrisitna intends to use to make a man out of him! The 20 pages of “don’t” and 49 pages of “do whatever the hell I want” will lead William on a hilariously painful journey of a lifetime.

Guided by his argumentative conscience., can he salvage his integrity and ability to sit down without grimacing? Or will he be completely corrupted by the seductive power of Christina and the sixty nine?? Only William’s “true self” can decide the outcome!

This hilarious new comedy has a whip cracking script that promises to leave you wincing and laughing in all the right places.
