Mark of Zorro and VAMM at Findhorn

22 Apr 2013 in Dance & Drama, Moray, Music

Sat 4th May, 7.30pm


Look out, a mysterious figure has arrived in town. . .

A flurry of a cape, the glint of a sword and a flash of a mask; who is this baffling character? Exciting friend or formidable foe?

Following on from a successful run at The Traverse Theatre in 2009, an extensive tour of the USA and Canada in 2012 and 2013, Visible Fictions’ epic adventure stage adaptation of The Mark of Zorro has been re-imagined and comes to the Universal Hall, Findhorn on Saturday 4th May following its return from Canada and America.

Glasgow-based Visible Fictions have been touring internationally since 1991 with various productions, notably Jason and the Argonauts which is embarking on its 7th tour of Canada and the USA also this autumn.

Artistic Director, Douglas Irvine commented; “I have always been intrigued by the character of Zorro, underneath his swashbuckling antics his identity is complex and mysterious. Combine this intriguing justice-seeking hero with a fast-paced adventure story complete with thrills, spills and romance – and our re-imagining of The Mark of Zorro is the perfect family experience, for families in Scotland and beyond!”

The Mark of Zorro brings a feel good adventure story to the stage, perfect for family audiences across Scotland. Don’t miss your chance to see the Scottish show that took Broadway by storm.

For intrepid adventures for all ages except maybe the under 5’s. The show starts at 7.30pm and tickets are available from the Phoenix Stores 01309 690110 and online at priced at £7 full price, £6 concessions and £5 for U-16’s
