Backstage La Cage aux Folles 

We are still looking for a few volunteers. Someone creative who can help make small props;  stagehands, make-up artists and hairdressers (wig dressing), dressers etc.  to come in at the end of rehearsals and work on the shows.

La Cage aux Folles is the laughter-filled story of a notorious drag queen, his husband and the son they have brought up together. Pandemonium and farce ensue when the son invites a right-wing politician (his future father-in-law) to Saint Tropez to meet them.  Though farcical, it carries a heartfelt plea for acceptance and tolerance - a message that is never out of date. The same story was used for the film, The Birdcage.  Tech rehearsals 19& 20 Nov. Performances 21-24 Nov & 11-15 Dec 2024 incl. matinees on Saturday and Sunday.
