A celebration of amateur drama
The Scottish Community Drama Association (SCDA) make a return to Stirling’s Macrobert Arts Centre next month for the Scottish final of their one-act play competition.
There are eight one-act plays to be performed over three evenings, from Thursday May 4 until Saturday May 6, presenting a mixture of comedy and drama.
The festival culminates in the Saturday night awards ceremony after the final play has been performed.
A spokesperson said: “Each of the plays on show has won through from local and regional rounds of the competition earlier this year. After planning, painting, sewing and rehearsing over the dark winter months, the clubs have honed their productions to present the very best performances at the Macrobert.
“The teams may be amateurs, but the standard of productions is expected to reach professional standard.
“This year’s finalists will be converging on Stirling from all corners of the country, from Dumfries and Galloway in the south-west to Orkney in the north, and points in between.
“SCDA’S rich history is highlighted by the return of past winners Kirkintilloch
Players, celebrating their 100th anniversary this year, along with Palace Players - 50 years together - and Leslie Amateur Drama Club, founded back in 1904.
“While the event is a competition, SCDA sees the festival as first and foremost a celebration of the very best in amateur drama.”
SCDA promise three great nights of entertainment and early booking is recommended. Tickets from the Macrobert box office priced £16/night or £45 for all three nights.
