Clonter has just completed the first lap of the annual auditioning process - 195 applications received, 143 audition slots available, 24 withdrawals due to ill health (It is that time of year).
Clonter is delighted to announce this new collaboration with the highly acclaimed Manchester based Hope Mill Theatre next Spring, bringing Rodgers and Hammerstein’s musical classic Cinderella to the Clonter stage. This production will be the fully staged UK premiere of this classic fairy tale, brought to life in an enchanting musical by the duo behind Oklahoma, Carousel and South Pacific.
Clonter is delighted to announce that the target of £60,000 has now been reached, and a full programme has been agreed for 2020. May we take this opportunity to thank all those that either donated or made a pledge thus helping us achieve this.
£58,000 NOW RAISED Clonter is delighted to report that it has now raised an astonishing £58,000, and is deeply heartened by the response to the URGENT APPEAL, launched in September.
