Stewarton Drama Group

Corsehillbank Street

Wednesday 13th August 2014

STEWARTON DRAMA GROUP will open their 42nd season on Wednesday 13th August 2014 with an Open Evening aimed at recruiting potential new members and new patrons. The club is always keen to meet people in the local area who are interested in any aspect of drama or theatre arts and the Open Evening will be a perfect opportunity for people to come along and find out more.
The Group meet on Wednesday and Thursday evenings in their own Premises, complete with a fully functional stage, rehearsal room, costume store, kitchen and lounge, in the Scout Building, Corsehillbank Street, beside the Tennis Courts in Stewarton.
Productions are cast by all interested Group members reading a section of the play script at a casting evening, so that the director can select the right actors and actresses for the parts. The Group then get to work on the technical side of the production where there is always plenty to do building the scenery, designing and painting the set, collecting or making the props, preparing the lighting and sound plans, and choosing the right costumes, music and stage make-up.

Season 2013-14 was a tremendous success for the Group. The season opened with an informal ‘New Members & Patrons Open Evening’ in August, which saw several new members join the club and go on to give their debut performance for SDG later in the year. The first performance of the season was the group’s memorable production of the hit play ‘Calendar Girls’ which brought audiences to their feet in standing ovations in October. That was followed by the group’s annual Pantomime ‘Aladdin’ which played to packed houses in December. Finally, the season closed on a high with two performances of ‘An Evening of Comedy and Drama’ in May featuring 3 short one-act plays, including a performance of ‘LittleBro Morning and BigSis Afternoon’ by guest performers The Dunlop Youth Players, plus two plays by SDG - ‘The Red Balloon’ and ‘Interior Designs’.
And the Group’s trophy cabinet is now packed with 9 new pieces of silverware thanks to the success in national drama festivals across Scotland of their full-length play from last season ‘Calendar Girls’,which won the 2013 West of Scotland Full-Length Play Festival, and their one-act play ‘Waste Management’ which won the 2014 West of Scotland Final of the One-Act Play Festival, going on to be placed 2nd overall in Scotland out of the 125 plays that originally entered the competition.
If all of that encourages you to find out more about getting involved next season, the Group are inviting anyone, over the age of 18, interested in local theatre to drop into their Premises in the town’s Corsehillbank Street on Wednesday 13th August from 7.30pm. This will be a great chance to come along, see round the Premises, have a chat with existing members, and find out more about the Group’s planned productions for the new drama season which kicks off with John Godber's celebrated play 'BOUNCERS' which SDG will perform between Thu 9th and Sat 11th October 2014 in the Stewarton Area Centre.
Alternatively, for only £30 a year you can become a Patron of the award-winning Group and receive two tickets for each of their three annual shows in the Stewarton Area Centre as well as a complimentary copy of the Group’s monthly newsletter ‘Cuelines’ and invitations to any in-house ‘Patrons Evenings’ that the group perform within their own premises.
Drama Group President, Morag Smith said:
“We’d love to meet you if you are interested in any aspect of drama - whether you fancy treading the boards, helping out backstage, building scenery, working on lights and sound, making props or costumes, singing and dancing in our pantomime chorus, or simply supporting the Group by becoming a Patron - please come along and meet us on Wednesday 13th August in our Premises.
