Bang Bang Beirut

Bang Bang Beirut.The Gibraltar Amateur Drama Association will be staging their new play as part of the Autumn Festival, “Bang Bank Beirut”, by Ray Cooney and Tony Hilton. Performance days will be Wednesday 30th and Thursday 31st October and Saturday 1st November.

Again GADA is sticking to their tried and tested formula of offering its audience its usual hilarious evening with this play. An outrageously funny farce set in the lobby and courtyard of a small hotel in the Middle East, where a group of British undercover agents (in a variety of unlikely disguises) are trying to weather a local military coup, while devising a plan to smuggle a young native prince out of danger. The bungling spies arouse the suspicions of the local military and we are off on a mad whirl of double-takes, sliding panels, missing bodies and mistaken identities – the perfect ingredients for a fast-moving and hilarious evening’s entertainment.

The play is produced for Gada by Howard Danino and jointly Directed by Howard Danino, Trevor Guilliano and Trevor Norton. The cast is made up of our usual members with some new faces thrown in.

The Gibraltar Multiple Sclerosis Society

We have just been awarded our charity status with charity registration number 236 and will be holding our first meeting to meet and greet members and admit new ones – and elect a committee.

It will be on Wednesday 21st November at 7pm at GADA premises, they have gladly offered us use of their premises at the Inces Hall Complex, located on the ground floor, the last room to the right at the end of the courtyard. There is limited parking and there is wheelchair access to the venue.

We welcome patients with MS or other neurological conditions to join us and make themselves known to us so we can include them in the Society and keep in touch with them and maybe offer some help.

Our main aim is to provide a support network for any diagnosed patients and especially newly diagnosed patients who want more info. helping them feel less alone with their condition and enable them to speak to others who know what they are referring to and feeling with their condition.

We will also be working closely with the local GHA to make them aware of our needs to ensure patients are catered for accordingly.

This will not be our official launch party.  Any patients or carers or anyone interested in helping out in any way or wanting to join in and offer their support is more than welcome to attend our meeting.

Our official launch will take place early in the New Year, we will be giving more details on that soon.

Calendar Girls at Inces Hall In Aid Of Bosum Buddies

Its that time of the year again when the brave girls from Bosom Buddies get together to produce their now very famous calendar. This year though they have been supported by the members of the Gibraltar Amatuer Drama Assiation who for the past 4 months have dedicated themselves wholeheartedly to their latest production – Calender Girls. Directors Trevor Norton and Trevor Guilliano have worked very closely with Howard Danino (producer) to stage on Gibraltar this unforgetable show.

The cast has also worked very hard, especially the six very brave ladies who play the leading characters. The main roles will be brought to life by Nadine Gonsalez, Gwendolin Williams, Kathryne Borge, Alma Piris, Kerry Marriot and Betty Danino. Also some familiar faces such as Mario Prescott, and Monica Richie.

The show is being staged in aid of the Bosom Buddies charity, so every penny will be donated to the local cancer trust. The show will run for four nights from the 15th to 18th October and tickets can already be purchased from the Inces Hall ticket office, priced at £10 and £12.

Insight Magazine encorages its readers to support this very worthy cause – we had a sneak preview during rehearsals and must say it looks very promising; definitely show not to be missed! We take the opportunity to wish the cast and crew all the best for the night.

Break a leg guys……..please, not litterally!
