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.
We’ve now started musical rehearsals for our production of Yeomen of the Guard, which will run at Dunfermline’s Carnegie Hall from 24–27 February 2016. Following the recent auditions for principal parts, the production has now been fully cast, with the exception of Colonel Fairfax, as you will see at this link. There is still a short window of opportunity for new chorus members to join the team – come along to Whitefield Day Hospital at 7.30 pm any Wednesday.
Come along to rehearsal half an hour earlier, and you can join in the group busy practising for our three Christmas fund-raising concerts, which are at 7.00pm on Friday 4 December at St Andrews Church, Clermiston, at 7.30pm on Saturday 5 December in Oakley, and at 7.30pm on Saturday 19 December in Dunfermline. More details to follow.
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.

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 …
