Community Drama Festival Coming To Caithness

12th February 2011

Fifty four local actors are currently in rehearsal for Caithness's five entries into the Scottish Community Drama Association annual One Act Play Festival.

The plays will be publicly adjudicated over the SCDA festival's two nights on 25th and 26th Feb, performing at Thurso High School 7pm

What makes this year's festival unique is that each of the two nights performances will feature both youth and adult entries, providing audiences with a variety of entertainment, and insight from adjudicator, Ron Nichol.

Thurso Players, Wick Players and Mount Pleasant After School Drama Club will present the five plays, two of which were written especially for the festival.

Light-hearted comedy, drama and farce are on the bill of weekend entertainment. A synopsis of each play is reported in the 11th Feb 2011 John o'Groat's Journal. Festival tickets are available from The Flower Patch, Wick and McBeath's Jewellers, Thurso. 8 adults; 4 concessions (under 16 or over 60) 20 family ticket (comprising 2 adults + 2 children under 16)
