AND OUR NEXT PRODUCTION IS...  

You've guessed it! We're returning to one of our previous triumphs, James Scotland's hilarious stage version of Compton Mackenzie's novel "Whisky Galore".

 

If you haven't read the book, seen the play, or seen either of the movies, here's the plot:

 

The tiny Scots Island of Todday suffers from a wartime whisky shortage. Luck of luck, a ship full of the precious liquid is wrecked on a reef. The islanders conspire to smuggle the whisky off the ship right under the noses of the pesky British revenue officials. Numerous clever comic complications occur before the happy ending -- which, we are told by the narrator, was not so happy once all the whisky was consumed.

 

When's it on?

We'll be performing "Whisky Galore!" on the Ayr Gaiety stage from Wednesday 21st to Saturday 24th March 2018.

 

Nearly there...

Well, we've held the reading, and we've prettty much cast the play. You'll find a complete cast listing, and news of all rehearsals, in our Members News section.

 

However, we're short a couple of men. Now, if we have to, we can certainly double up some parts (if it's OK for the National Theatre of Scotland, it's OK for us). But...if you're a man, looking to get involved in the theatre, now's your chance. You can contact us via this website, or through our Facebook page.
