Musical comedy at New Deer hall

NEW Deer Community Association will present the award-winning Tangram Theatre Company with their latest hit ‘The Origin of Species…Being a Musical Comedy about Charles Darwin” next week.

The show will be staged in New Deer public hall on Tuesday, April 26, at 7.30pm, and is suitable for young and old alike.

It tells the story of how Charles Darwin came to discover the secrets of evolution and why it took him more than 20 years before he plucked up the courage to publish his remarkable idea.

It’s a show packed with big ideas, terrible puns, brilliant physical comedy and six cracking original songs about everything, from blasted boring barnacles to the perils of marrying your own cousin.

The Origin of Species...was created to celebrate the bicentenary of Darwin’s birth and the 150 year anniversary since his revolutionary book was published.

Tangram Theatre Company is an award-winning theatre company formed in 2006 who have already produced nine critically acclaimed shows.

This performance is made possible with the support of NEAT Ltd, Creative Scotland and Aberdeenshire Council.

Tickets are priced at £9 (£6 concession), and are available from Chemist/Food for Thought, New Deer on (01771) 644217/644366 or online at
