Six North drama groups battle for finals place
THE district finals of the Scottish Community Drama Association festival of one act plays takes place on Friday and Saturday, 5 and 6 April at 7pm in Nairn's Community & Arts Centre, King Street, Nairn.
Divisional winners from Nairn, Dingwall, Plockton, Kinloss and Wick will battle it out in a bid to be one of the two winners to represent the Highland Division at the Scottish Finals in Kirkcaldy from April 25-27.
The Dingwall Players recently won the Moray District Heats at the Little Theatre Nairn with a play called Seeing Red.
Four trophies are up for grabs for first, second, third and stage presentation.
Friday will see two plays performed by Nairn Drama Club and Dingwall Players – sadly the Lochcarron Players, originally scheduled to perform that day too, have had to pull out.
Saturday will see performances from the Plockton Amateur Dramatic Society, the Buccaneer Theatre Group (Lossiemouth) and Wick Players.
The adjudicator over the two days is Paul Fowler from Cheltenham. He holds a BA Hons in drama and literature and a screen acting diploma and he is a former chairman of the Guild of Drama Adjudicators.
Paul has adjudicated over many festivals throughout the UK and is looking forward to returning to the Highlands.
Tickets are available from Nairn Community & Arts Centre priced at £10 for one night or £18 for two. www.nairncc.co.uk
