JACK AND HIS BEANSTALK HEADING FOR BALLYMENA THIS CHRISTMAS

The Braid Arts Centre in Ballymena will this year host c21 Theatre Company and its world premier of Jack and the Beanstalk.  The famous story is written and directed by the Company’s Artistic Associate Pamela Cassells and produced by Creative Director and Ballymena man Stephen Kelly.  The show will open in Ballymena on Friday 5th December continuing through to Tuesday 23rd December.

 

After the hugely successful productions of Cinderella with Olivia Nash in 2013 and Eoghan Quigg as Aladdin in 2012, c21 are back with the world famous story of the young boy Jack who sells the family cow in exchange for magic beans.  The magic beans turn into a beanstalk and after Jack climbs it, he discovers a whole new world.

 

The brilliant cast includes Aaron Cathcart as Jack, Philippa O’Hara as Jill and Richard Priestly as Widow Twankey.  The Company will also introduce local children during the show in the form of Peter and Paul, the Two Dicky Birds.  Local dance group Ballymena Dance Academy will have a say too when they feature some of their talented dancers on the Braid’s stage.

 

Producer Stephen Kelly gives a taste of the show this year:

“We are delighted to be back at the Braid this year for our eighth appearance and another brand new piece.  It has a real local flavour this time with children from the area taking part in the professional production.  Dancers and young amateur actors will share the stage with our professional actors in what promises to be a very special Christmas treat.”

 

Local children were selected to take part after auditions throughout the province.

 

Mark Dougherty (Dancing Shoes and Dracula) will again direct the music for Jack and the Beanstalk – Wilson Shields will accompany him.

Stand Up Man Northern Ireland Tour

 

The Northern Ireland Tour of Stand Up Man  commenced in January with a residency at the Baby Grand, Royal Opera House on 28th January and continued until 8th February. Further performances took place throughout Northern Ireland through February.

 

Well known Northern Ireland actor, comedian and TV personality, Tim McGarry played the main role as Thaddeus’ alter ego as he visits his past and admits the errors of his way. This was McGarry’s first serious theatre role after a successful, long-running career in comedy, radio and TV.

 

The play was written by Dublin born playwright Derek Murphy who now lives in New York. It was produced by c21 Theatre Company from Belfast, led by producer Stephen Kelly and directed by Stephen Beggs.

 

To celebrate we released a video to promote the tour. We hope you enjoyed the performance.
