White Light to present Halloween show this week

The White Light Company will be performing a spooky Halloween fundraiser called ‘The children of Catalan Bay’ this week.

The show will be held on Halloween, Thursday October 31 and on Friday November 1, at the John Mackintosh Hall Theatre.

The show will be in remembrance of Andrew Dark’s mother Margot Rodriguez who passed last year.

“I with White Light will be remembering her name by doing our Halloween show,” Mr Dark said.

“In the past Jackie Villa and I have brought you awarding winning theatre with our play ‘Llevame Donde Naci’ and the second part of our trilogy ‘The Winds of Change’.”

“This time we bring you something slightly different. As always we are giving our work a local flavour in its language and settings but this one will be open to folks who do not have a strong command of our own Llanito tongue.”

White Light are raising monies for local charities including ‘Stay Clean’ and GBC’s open day.

As part of the event there will also be a Halloween costume contest, any person attending either performance in a costume will be entered into a Halloween competition.

The winner of the costume contest will receive £100.

The play called children of Catalan Bay is a spooky tale and a retelling of the ‘Village of the Damned’ sci-fi movie.

A synopsis of the play is as follows: “No-one suspected that night as Llanitos slept in the loving arms of El ‘Penon’ that a cosmic wave had washed ashore and come to rest in the ancient Village.”

“Where an Alien life force surrounds and cuts off a tiny village from the outside world and months later all the women of childbearing years give birth to Atomic Blonde children who can read minds.”

“Our version of this classic tale of Space Children invading is set during the turbulent and stormy years of the 1990’s.”

“The rise of the Winston Boys. Expect thrills, scares and lots of laughs as some of Gib’s finest voices perform this story. In the style of an ‘Old time Radio show’ from the 1940’s.”

“A truly horror fuelled evening is guaranteed for all.”

The show is open for two nights only starting at 8pm, tickets are available online or at the door. All proceeds made will b donated to local charities ‘Stay Clean’ and the GBC Open Day.
