Mull Theatre coming to Appin and Benderloch village halls on 12th and 13th February 2019

Mull Theatre coming to Appin and Benderloch village halls on 12th and 13th February 2019

THE ELECTRIFYING MR JOHNSTON

A new play about one of Scotland’s great unsung heroes, Tom Johnston, once described by Churchill as the ‘King of Scotland’, focusing on his struggles to bring “light to the glens.” Through incredible feats of engineering and political manoeuvring, he sought to transform the lives of everyone in the north of Scotland by bringing hydroelectric power to the Highlands & Islands.

A story of power-and the struggle for it.

BITE-SIZE
An informal programme of script-in-hand play readings of new plays and works-in-progress.
Readings, encounters, questions & answers, feedback and chat offer audiences the chance to be part of and enjoy the fun of the creative process.

This drama performance resulted from a bite size activity that Mull Theatre ran at Rockfield last year. They are bringing the performance to Appin and Benderloch, as well as Corran Halls on Saturday 9th. After the show they will be running another bite size session with reading from new plays and work in progress. There will be opportunities for questions input etc so it would be great to get the word out to as many drama folk as possible.

Appin Village Hall Tuesday 12th February at 7.30
Benderloch Village Hall Wednesday 13th February at 7.30

Tickets £12 of £10 for under 26 years

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.
