Cumbernauld Theatre have unveiled their long awaited autumn 2012 show programme.

The List, winner of the Governor General’s Award, will start off the season, from Friday 31st August.

According to Cumbernauld Theatre, The List is set in Québec, and tells the story of a woman struggling to adjust to rural life. Increasingly isolated, she keeps life in order through obsessive list making. As her marriage struggles she befriends Caroline. When Caroline requests a favour she adds it to her list.  The difference between remembering to do it, and neglecting to take it seriously, becomes the difference between life and death.

Tickets are priced at £15, concessionaries are £7 and under-18s are £5, for the 7.45pm show.

The next show will be Casablanca, which will take to the Cumbernauld Theatre stage between Thursday 6th September and Friday 7th September.

According to the Cumbernauld Theatre website the show is “Set in a tiny gin joint, this fast-paced, action-packed comedy is a smart and lovingly disrespectful tribute to an all-time classic film. With a wonderful yet simple set design, the show has already received five-star reviews at Glasgow’s Oran Mor, the Tron Theatre and Edinburgh Fringe.”

Tickets are £10 and concessionaries are £8 for the show which starts at 7.45pm.

Then, Saturday 8th September will see Ornithology come to Cumbernauld Theatre.

Cumbernauld Theatre describes the show as: “In a remote tropical place a travelling salesman stumbles across an abandoned estate with a sole untamed inhabitant. His enthusiasm quickly upsets her delicate balance of memory, ritual and hard liquor. Unknown to them, the encounter is being observed, scrutinised, analysed, until the natural order is truly disrupted.”

Tickets for the 7.45pm show are priced at £9, concessionaries are £7 and under-18s are £5.

The next show in Cumbernauld Theatre’s diary is Heartbeat, which will take place on Thursday 13th September.  Online, Cumbernauld Theatre describe the show as “A superb mixture of comedy and music - not to be missed!” and tickets are £10, concessionaries are £8 and under-18s are £8.

A Dream on Midsummer's Night will then take over Cumbernauld Theatre on Friday 14th September, at 7.30pm.

“Wee Stories’ re-telling of Shakespeare’s fabulous fairy-tale will be an entertaining, fast-moving and delightfully inventive night out for anyone aged 10 or over,” according the Cumbernauld Theatre website.

Tickets are priced at £7, concessionaires are £6, and under-18s are £5.

Dannsa will be the next show on at Cumbernauld Theatre. “Blending together dance, with music on fiddle, guitar, pipes, keyboard, and Gaelic song these engaging performers bring you an evening of wonderful rhythms and finely crafted traditional dance. Dannsa’s contagious enjoyment of Scotland’s traditions is infectious, leaving you wanting more,” is how Cumbernauld Theatre describes the performance.

Tickets for the show, which will take on Saturday 15th September, at 7.45pm are priced at £10, £7 for concessionaires and £5 for under-18s.

The Noizy Indie Social Club’s ‘Festival of Music 2012’ will then occupy Cumbernauld Theatre’s walls, on Saturday 22nd September, from noon ‘til midnight.
