KENDAL'S Community Theatre are returning to the stage to present Bertholt Brecht's The Threepenny Opera.

The Opera is directed by Emma Rucastle from Lancaster, who has worked in Kendal Community Theatre previously directing the company at Staveley Roundhouse and Castle Street.

KCT also have a guest pianist to give full justice to Kurt Weill’s art deco style music of the late 1920’s, George Campbell is a student at the Royal College of Music and is from Manchester.

Kendal Community Theatre were publicising the play dressed in character in Kendal’s Birdcage recently, one passerby remarked “Kendal needs Brecht more than ever right now!”

First performed in 1928, the Three Penny Opera is a biting satire of capitalism and the relationship between rich and poor is still all-too relevant almost a century later.

With memorable characters, witty dialogue and catchy songs, including the famous Mack The Knife, this promises to be an entertaining and thought-provoking production.

The show will be held at Castle Street Centre on October 30 at 19.30.

Tickets are available from £5/10 and can be purchased on
