Artistes from the Castle Players are looking forward to ‘The Mating Season’ – that’s the title of their upcoming production which will be staged on 12th & 13th October 2018.
Formed in 2013, the Castle Players originates from St Patrick’s Parish Church in Castle Street. Over the last five years, they have been recognised for their energetic, polished performances which inject a fresh energy into the province’s finest stage scripts.
Sam Cree’s romantic comedy ‘Mating Season’ is certain to give these talented local performers another hit.
The script centres on the family of Sid Gillespie. Sid is eager to marry his latest love interest, Stella Morley, much to the consternation of her daughter Vanessa and Sid’s housekeeper, Mrs Jameson.
On proposing, Stella accepts on the condition that Sid marries off his Uncle Fred and his two sons Mervyn and Robin, whom she wants out of the house.
Sid invites the boys’ potential suiters as well as Fred’s childhood sweetheart around to discuss the idea of marriage and hopefully persuade them to be betrothed.
As Saucy Babs, German immigrant Helga and nervous Violet Harris make themselves comfortable in Sid’s home, he ends up getting more than he bargains for and the hilarity of each predicament unfolds.
