Stage Aid Drama Society are performing the last production of ‘The Departure Lounge’ in order to raise vital funds for SVP, Salvation Army and The Welcome Centre for homeless people.
As the society celebrates its 30th year the cast are to perform the production later this month in Gilford.
All profits are donated to Third World charities and the society wishes to continue its long running Christmas commitment to these local charities. Armand Gaillard, Stage Aid founder, writer and director is making a special appeal to the community to support the last performance of this hilarious comedy set in an old peoples’ home.
Armand may be passionate about his writing and producing the best possible performances with the minimum of expense, but he is equally passionate, if not more, about supporting those in need.
“Stage Aid marked its 30 year anniversary in 2015 and the Ebola Crisis and the Syrian Refugee Crisis marked 2015. We donated all our profits this year to these appeals and really hope people can come out and support us for this Christmas Special to enable us to continue our traditional Christmas donations.”
The ‘Departure Lounge’ has received rave reviews and won an award in Lislea Festival. So not only will the production be making a significant donation to the Christmas Appeal, the audience is also guaranteed a wonderful evening’s entertainment.
Stage Aid’s The Departure Lounge is on Sunday, November 29 at 7.30pm in Gilford Community Hall, Castle Hill, Gilford. Tickets are £7 including a light supper and are available from Mckeag’s Express Cleaners, Lurgan and Nisa Local, Gilford or alternatively you can pay at the door.
