A year on from breaking the Guinness World Record for Fastest Theatrical Production, Dunblane’s Rubber Chicken Theatre is taking on another crazy challenge.
Rather than focus on one production, the community based social enterprise is taking on four shows this spring!
Rehearsals are already in full swing for Chess, Little Shop of Horrors, Annie and 10 Ways to Survive the Zombie Apocalypse; with the four shows set to be streamed from 22 April to 1 May, alongside a performance of Fame recorded at the MacRobert pre-pandemic.
RCT’s Artistic Director Pamela Mackie said: “I’m so proud of what our hugely talented casts are achieving online, from our littlest pre-schoolers to our experienced adults. We’ve even got cast members from as far afield as Denmark and Switzerland taking part.
“Rehearsing on zoom and recording at home is much harder than doing it in person, but we never shy away from a challenge at Rubber Chicken Theatre!
“A year ago, we pulled off an incredible feat by breaking the Guinness World Record for the Fastest Theatrical Production. Just over 11 hours to get curtain up on a cast of 100, complete with costumes, set, props, full band and tech team. We discovered during lockdown that our record has been broken by another theatre company in Spain. We’re not sure when we’ll be able to get back on a stage, but taking the record back will be high on our priority list when we do!
“In the meantime, we hope audiences enjoy watching our lockdown theatre season at home.”
Tickets are available now from www.bookwhen.com/rubberchickentheatre on a ‘pay what you can’ basis.
