Stewarton Drama Group Open Evening



8 August at 19:30

STEWARTON DRAMA GROUP will open their 46th season of drama on Wednesday 08 August 2018 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 evening will also feature a surprise performance which the Group are calling ‘From Page……To Stage’ to entertain everyone on the night.
The Group meet on Wednesday 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.

Stewarton Drama Group will open our new season on Wednesday 8th August by holding an event in our premises in the Scout Building in Corsehillbank Street, Stewarton aimed at attracting new members and new patrons. If you are over 18 and interested in finding out we put a production together, please come along ! We've called the event 'From Page to Stage' - a poster is attached and our press release is copied below. Please feel free to spread the word to family and friends, and we hope to see some of you then - you will be most welcome.
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 2017-18 was a tremendous success for the Group. The season opened with an informal Open Evening in August when a rehearsed reading of a short play was performed for the enjoyment of all those attending. The murder mystery comedy thriller ‘A Tomb with a View’ was the group’s major public performance last year which played to packed houses in the Stewarton Area Centre in October. Later in the season the group performed three memorable Irish one-act plays (‘A Galway Girl’, ‘Losers’ and ‘Small Box Psychosis’) which delighted audiences in February. In addition to this, the group performed two further “in-house” productions in their own Premises in December and May for the enjoyment of their loyal Patrons and friends.
And the Group’s trophy cabinet is now proudly displaying two new pieces of silverware, following on from their recent success at a drama festival in The East Kilbride Village Theatre in May with their production of ‘A Galway Girl’. The play was placed Third overall at the conclusion of the week-long festival, and Nancy McPherson, who performed in the play, was awarded the prestigious trophy for Best Actress in the Festival.RIf 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 08 August from 7.30pm. This will be a great chance to come along, see round the Premises and have a chat with existing members. You will also have the opportunity to find out more about the Group’s planned productions for the new drama season 2018-19 and how you might get involved.
Alternatively, for only £30 a year you can become a Patron of the award-winning Group and receive two tickets for each of their 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, Walter Findlay 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, or simply supporting the Group by becoming a Patron - please come along and meet us on Wednesday 08 August in our Premises.

We're reading 'Wyrd Sisters' by TerryPratchett



8 August 7:30pm

Wyrd Sisters features three witches: Granny Weatherwax; Nanny Ogg, matriarch of a large tribe of Oggs and owner of the most evil cat in the world; and Magrat Garlick, the junior witch, who firmly believes in occult jewelry, covens, and bubbling cauldrons, much to the annoyance of the other two.

Readings are how we test out new plays before deciding to produce them. All are welcome to come along, whether you want to read or simply listen. No experience is required and scripts will be provided.

Please feel free just to turn up, but if you can let us know you’ll be joining us we will appreciate it. We’ll start at 7.30pm with the committee meeting, at which we’ll discuss which of the plays we’ve read so far could be our October production!

All welcome, scripts will be provided!

Murder Mystery



Friday 17th and Saturday 18th of August 2018 at 7:30pm

NECP are proud to announce the return of our popular Murder Mystery nights in August (including fish and chip supper):
It’s the height of the 1920’s, and the SS New Orleans is making its maiden voyage from Southampton to New York, There are a select group of VIP guests who will be dining at the captain’s table! And you’re all invited to the grand celebration onboard, but before the first champagne cork has been popped and the celebrations begin, the captain has been found dead!! found floating in the swimming pool on deck….
The suspects have been gathered in the grand ballroom along with you, the other guests and (luckily enough) Sherlock Holmes and Doctor Watson who are promptly on the case.
Can you solve the murder and bring the culprit (or culprits?) to justice?
