Ballycumber Amateur Drama Society’s 2014 production Cupid wore Skirts opens in Ballycumber Community Centre on Saturday February 1 at 8pm and will be performed there again on Sunday February 2 at 8pm, before moving to Tuar Ard in Moate for performances at 8.30pm nightly from February 5-8.
This hilarious, tongue-in-cheek comedy charts the bet between widower Andrew Coulter and his acid-tongued sister-in-law that he cannot find a wife within a week, the subsequent advertisement in the local paper and the frolics that ensue when potential suitors - a pop wannabe, an outwardly homely wine connoisseur, and a career husband-hunter - all accept Andrew’s “proposal” of sorts.
On the brink of bigamy, the hapless Andrew must rely on his son and daughter to mastermind a solution to his predicament.
Directed by Chris Murphy, Cupid wore Skirts stars Michael Hiney as the put-upon Andrew Coulter; Derek Claffey as his wayward father Grandpa; Charlotte Molloy as sensible, married Daphne; Padraic Seery as flamboyant Ronnie; Aidan Dunne as pop-obsessed Brian; and Carol Robbins as busybody spinster Aunt Harriet.
Ballycumber Drama Society is delighted to welcome Clare Flattery back to the stage in this years role as unpredictable Miss Stansfield and to welcome newcomer Siobhán O’Brien as exotic singer Ingrid.
Come along and enjoy a fantastic evening’s entertainment. Tickets, which cost €10 or €8 with concession, will be available on the door at Ballycumber Community Centre on the evenings of the performances and tickets for Tuar Ard can be booked by contacting (090 ) 6482042.
