Cinderella – The Mini Panto

Grappa’s Cellar April 16, 2016. 12.30pm.

It’s that time of year again – oh yes it is! –  the much anticipated mini-panto is back! This mini musical entertainment stars seven young people with Down Syndrome who will be getting up on-stage to share their talent and their endless enthusiasm with audiences.

This is the second year that Hong Kong Players have joined with the Hong Kong Down Syndrome Association to create a magical mini panto based on Players’ annual Christmas show, which was staged at Udderbelly Theatre in December 2015. Last year’s mini-show was a joyous occasion in a room full of love, and this year’s show promises more of the same – with stand-out performances and songs including Call Me Maybe and When You Believe.

Following Little Red Riding Hood in 2015, this year we are in the magical world of Cinderella. So come along and support these fantastic young people – aged from seven to 35 – who are giving their all in this big-hearted hour of fun!

All proceeds from the event will be donated to the English-speaking group of the

Hong Kong Down Syndrome Association

Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?

Hong Kong Players present…..

Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf? 

One of America’s greatest plays takes us into the home of George and Martha, a

aged college professor and his fiery wife locked in a battle of the sexes. Inviting younger

couple Nick and Honey to the drinks party from hell, things quickly take a darker turn in

Edward Albee’s tragicomedy. As the alcohol flows, so does the wit, invective and spite.

Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf? is directed by Jodi Gilchrist and stars Kath O’Connor, Henry

Coombs, Michelle Edwards and Matthew Rawcliffe.

When: February 17th-20th at 8pm

Where: McAulay Studio, HK Arts Centre, Wanchai

Tickets: Adults $280; Concessions (students, seniors, disabled) $220

Credit Card Hotline: 2111 5999

On-line booking: www.urbtix.hk

Also available from all URBTIX outlets including HK Arts Centre, City Hall, HK Cultural

Centre and Tom Lee Music outlets.

Hong Kong Player’s committee members Jenny Lun, Adam Walker and Candice Caalsen rehearsed alongside Claire Johnson weekly with eight children with Down Syndrome and they performed a heart0warming production of Little Red Riding Hood Mini-Panto.

Abigail’s Party

by Mike Leigh

Where and When

McAulay Studio, Hong Kong Arts Centre
26 Feb – 1 Mar 2014

Blurb

It was a time of kaftans, Cinzano Bianco, water shortages and Demis Roussos; it was a time when cheese and pineapple on sticks was considered exotic; and it was a time when England’s newly middle-class was emerging. They wanted possessions, they wanted standing in the community, they wanted . . . taste.

Welcome to the world of Beverly – possibly the original “Essex girl” – who is having some neighbours over to her suburban semi for a bit of a do. As well as Bev’s much put-upon husband Laurence, the guests are married couple Ange and Tone, and neighbour Susan, who’s only here to escape her punk daughter Abigail’s party. It’s a very small gathering, which might make for a cosy affair, but which also means there’s nowhere to hide.Watch movie online The Transporter Refueled (2015)Spring Breakers (2013)

Mike Leigh’s award-winning 1977 play is by turns hilarious and excruciating as it mercilessly sends up the aspirations of England’s new middle class. It gained cult status when it first came out and remains a perennial favourite. Under the inspired direction of Jodi Gilchrist (The Graduate, Pride & Prejudice), Abigail’s Party is guaranteed to bring both a grin and a grimace to your face.
