10 January 2020Casting call - 3 males needed for One Act Play Festival entry

The club's open entry for the SCDA Festival is an adaptation of Black Watch by Gregory Burke (who is a cousin of Marie Mowat, who is part of our regular costuming team!). It is about the famous Scottish regiment, their history and the regiment being subsumed into the Scottish Regiments while fighting in Iraq in 2004.

Due to a variety of reasons, we are struggling to fill the cast, and are short of two young men to play soldiers who are killed in action, and an older man to play the playwright, doubling as an officer of the regiment in the final scene. None of these parts are huge, as they each appear only in half of the scenes. However, the cast need to be prepared to use very strong language as befits squaddies from the industrial towns of Fife and Tayside.

We rehearse on Sunday, Monday and Thursday evenings, although these roles will not be needed at every rehearsal in the first few weeks at least.

If you are interested, want some more information or would like to come to read through the script, then please contact Graham on 07740 124489, or at graham.garson@gmail.com

06 January 20202019 - What a Year!

Well, what a year the club had in 2019, eh? Success with "A Handbag" and "Shakers" taking up the first 6 months of the year, followed by another fun and fast-paced Shopping Week Revue, and finished off with a fantastic pantomime, "Smut's Saga", that saw Kathy Hunter and Rhiannon Reilly taking on directing their first big winter production - an excellent achievement and outcome!
Our next event is our Annual General Meeting, coming up on Saturday 25 January, and we'd be delighted to see a few additional faces attending, either to hear the report on our activities or perhaps to join the committee. We have a vacancy for a secretary and although we have hope of one coming forth, if you would be interested in finding out more about the role please email stromnessdramaclub@gmail.com and Barbara will be happy to give you details.
