Welcome to our new website! We’ve been working to redevelop the site, so some things have moved, but you’ll find the static material that used to appear at the bottom of this page has been relocated to the Welcome page. This page displays the three most recent posts in the Home category: older posts can be found in our Posts archive.
News about Yeomen
The Chairman writes: After the summer we’ll be starting Yeomen of the Guard. The dates for Yeomen are 24–27 February 2016, which is a little later in the year than Gondoliers. We plan to begin rehearsals on Wednesday 19 August at 7.30 pm at Whitefield Day Hospital.
Audition dates for those who would like to be considered for principal parts have been set as Wednesday 26 August and Monday 31 August (in the evenings). Audition pieces for music and dialogue can be downloaded at this link. If you would like to audition, or ask for more information, please contact Mary Alexander, the Vice-Chairman, or e-mail ku.gro.ssagdnull@snoitidua. You will be able to book a slot on one of these days.
I look forward to seeing many of you on 19 August. Meantime, have a great summer!
Well done, everybody!
The Society excelled itself in last week’s production of The Gondoliers, which looked and sounded splendid. Congratulations to the many people who contributed to that success, both on and off stage.
If you didn’t make it to Carnegie, then you missed a treat. All that we can offer at the moment is a look at the programme, which you can view at this link, but the site will eventually have a selection of photographs and reviews, such as the official NODA show report (added 25 February). If you want to tell us what you thought of the show, or to contribute to the archive, please email ku.gro.ssagdnull@nitram.
Venice at Valentines
You really do have to buy this week’s Dunfermline Press, which has now fewer than three pages featuring our Act 1 gondoliers and contadine. Well done Douglas, for “socking it to them” at the start of the Press Entertainment section. And thanks to Jim Payne for taking some great photos!
Of course, the real thing is better than any images can be, so you’ll need to make haste to Carnegie before Saturday night …
