WHAT’S ON OCTOBER: Giffnock Theatre Players present The Matchmaker

Giffnock Theatre Players upcoming production The Matchmaker is coming to Eastwood Park Theatre in just a few weeks.

The Matchmaker is a farce that sees a rich widower, Vandergelder, wanting to re-marry for convenience. His niece wants to marry for true love, but Vandergelder won’t allow it. Vandergelder’s assistant is looking for excitement rather than romance. Along comes The Matchmaker, Dolly, to sort it all out… but whilst pretending to help Vandergelder find a bride, she plans to marry him herself!

In 1964, songs were added to this classic comedy and it was re-named “Hello Dolly!” – “The Matchmaker” has the same plot, characters and laughs as it’s musical counterpart, but now you can see the original Dolly working her magic!

“Loud, slap dash and uproarious … extraordinarily original and funny.” – The New York Times

“One of the sweetest and smartest romantic farces ever written.” – The Wall Street Journal

The Matchmaker runs at Eastwood Park Theatre, Rouken Glen Road, Giffnock, G46 6UG in Glasgow’s Southside from 16th to 19th October 2019 at 7.30pm, with a matinee performance at 2.30pm on Saturday 19th.
