We’ve been working to redevelop our website, 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 and its subsidiary pages.

EGM 1 November
There will be an Extraordinary General Meeting of Society members on Wednesday 1 November 2017, approximately 15 minutes before the end of the rehearsal (Whitefield Day Hospital, Queen Margaret Hospital, Dunfermline). This will allow members to vote on the proposal to use HMS Pinafore for the 2018 Summer Sing Along concert and for the 2019 February production to be The Sorcerer (last performed in 2010). Suggestions from the membership for an appropriate non-G&S show, which could be performed in February 2020, may also be brought to this meeting.
Mikado character notes
As potentially the best known operetta in the G&S canon, Rae suggests that there isn’t much she can tell you about the characters that hasn’t been said a million times before. But she’s looking to make the production vibrant, relevant and perhaps a little off kilter, is open to all interpretations, and looks forward to seeing at the auditions what you can bring to the party. Do read her brief at this link.
Only a week to go!
The first rehearsal night for The Mikado will be next Wednesday, 23 August from 7.30pm to 9.30pm in Whitefield. Please do all you can to encourage friends, relations, neighbours and colleagues to come and join the chorus and/or audition for principal rôles!
There are two audition dates, Monday 28 August and Wednesday 6 September, the latter at the end of the rehearsal. Do take a look at the audition pieces, and book your slot with Mary Alexander by e-mailing ku.gro.ssagdnull@snoitidua (or phoning her on 01383 737441).
