Its been a tough time casting this show and the standard of audition from EVERYONE was very high.
We hope that everyone who auditioned and didn’t get a named part will still join us for this show which is going to be very challenging music, acting and choreography wise but also great fun.
Time to pay the fiddler  – The wait is almost over.

After many auditions, many deliberations and very difficult decisions – Fiddler on the roof has now been cast.

We will reveal the principal casting on Thursday the 12th of July at the Rugby Club 7.30pm just before the main rehearsal for the summer show begins.  All members and “audittionees”  welcome and encouraged to come along.

Dear Everyone.

The main casting for Fiddler On The Roof  is more or less  complete but there are still a couple of people who could not make the audition day to be seen before the final casting is confirmed.

We would rather put out the whole casting in one go rather than bit by bit (With the exception of small allocated parts through production and some of the Russians and some “bit walk on parts”)

Hopefully auditions will be completed this week (W/c 9.07.2018) and then Louisa and I will finalise casting – we can then decide how to disseminate the news.

Please bear with us whilst we complete this (very) complex and challenging  process

Evelyn Campbell.

Evelyn Campbell.

For those in the group who were members during our time as Oban Operatic Society, you may have performed or worked with Evelyn Campbell. Sadly, Evelyn passed away a few days ago. She took part on stage whilst a member, most notably in 1990 playing Aunt Eller in the group’s first production of Oklahoma. Evelyn will be remembered for her passion for singing and was also a talented pianist. Our condolences to her family at this sad time.

Here is a review of Rapunzel – A Tangled Tale as seen through the eyes of the pupils at Easdale Primary School. Their drawings of the characters and their comments show just how much they enjoyed the panto and all the little details they noticed. Thank you Easdale Primary School for taking the time to do this for us.


Sad Times….

Sad Times….

Spotlight Musical Theatre Group are sad to learn of the passing of former member and friend, Maureen Miller. Maureen, along with her husband Geoff, was part of our group for many years.

Although Maureen did not take to the stage with us, her help and support off-stage was invaluable, including her talent for making us some lovely costumes and her tireless work front of house at many shows.

An elegant, kind lady with a wonderful sense of humour. We will miss her.

Our thoughts are with Geoff at this very difficult time.
