The 2012 Summer production of ‘Kindly Keep it Covered’ by Dave Freeburn and directed by Susan Gates has finished a highly successful tour, culminating in two great shows in Portadown Town Hall were the home audiences give it a wonderful reception.
CHRISTMAS PLAY 2011
Bob Anderson produced the 2011 Christmas production which was the Alan Ayckbourn comedy ‘Round and Round the Garden.’
SUMMER THEATRE 2011
Sam Cree’s hilarious ‘Widows’ Paradise’ was the group’s summer theatre production and following a successful week in Portrush toured various venues across the province and finished with two very successful show in Portadown Town Hall on October 28th and 29th.
Set in the sixties the action of the play takes place in a caravan in Portrush. Widower Harry Bradshaw, his brother-in-law Ernie and son Alan are enjoying a quiet weekend fishing break when their peace is shattered by the arrival of five women who are on an ‘escape from men’ holiday. Add to this cocktail, the long estranged husband of one of the women and a rampant farmer and the action rattles along with all the great ‘Cree’ ingredients of an hilarious Ulster comedy and some unexpected romance.
Blithe Spirt – a fine festive production
Mrs Margaret Burke made her debut as a producer with the Gateway Theatre with this year’s Christmas production the ever popular Noel Coward’s ‘Bithe Spirit.’ The performances were in Portadown Town Hall on Friday 11th December and Saturday 12th December and were a fitting close to a busy 2009 for the Gateway Theatre Group.
