|Aberdeen Chorus of Sweet Adelines||Aberdeen||The Aberdeen Chorus of Sweet Adelines International is a chorus of around 90 women from Aberdeen, Scotland who sing in four part harmony a cappella style. It is one of the top women's barbershop choruses in the UK having won the UK Championships no fewer than 6 times.|
The first step in joining the Aberdeen Chorus is for you to sing a quick song (usually Happy Birthday) for the Musical Director, so that she can decide which part you would be best suited to sing.
You will then be given a learning CD (or you can download tracks for your mp3 player) of 2 songs along with the sheet music, which you can practise for between 3 and 6 weeks. During this time when you come to Chorus there will always be other members willing to take you aside and sing with you until you have your audition which will be with some members of the Music Team.
If you don't pass first time you can try again the following week. It’s a very relaxed atmosphere and not nearly as difficult as it sounds!President email email@example.com

One of the most prominent amateur societies in the North East of Scotland. For 70 years we have entertained local audiences with first-class performances, all of which are produced to a consistently high standard.
We produce Operas, Operettas and Musicals
Age Range: 16+
Rehearsals: Mondays and Sundays. Wednesdays for Principles.
Aberdeen Opera Company (AOC) - one of the most prominent amateur societies in the North East of Scotland. For over 65 years we have entertained local audiences with first-class performances of operas, operettas and musicals, all produced to a consistently high standard.
We undertake one major show in February/March, often at His Majesty\’s Theatre - a stunning 1400-seat professional venue in the heart of the Granite City. Most recently we have performed Fiddler on the Roof on this prestigious stage, and in 2011 we look forward to presenting the Scottish premiere of Phantom by Maury Yeston and Arthur Kopit.
We also stage a small-scale summer show or concert in June, which gives the company an ideal opportunity to showcase its outstanding vocal capabilities. In recent years we have produced choreographed concerts of medleys from movies, musicals and even a celebration of 50 years of pop music . In 2010, in our 70th Anniversary year, we presented SEVENTY at Aberdeen Arts Centre, a vividly illustrated musical retrospective of the company's history.
AOC also enjoys a lively social calendar of theatre trips, seasonal festivities and after-show parties. Our aim is for people to benefit from their membership both on and off stage, and to reap rewards beyond those that come with treading the boards. So if you are interested in joining us, don't be shy about getting in touch - we are a friendly and welcoming group!
Each year, the company faces an increasing financial challenge to maintain the high standard of production that our enthusiastic audiences have come to expect. Fortunately, we have formed positive relationships with local businesses through sponsorship packages, which have given us the financial support we need to produce shows of professional quality. Our partners in business find working with us extremely rewarding. If you would like to find out more about sponsoring AOC, please do not hesitate to contact us.

|Edinburgh||Allegro is an amateur musical theatre society, established with the aim of presenting lesser known musicals to Edinburgh audiences|
Allegro was formed in 1977 from the then Barclay Bruntsfield Drama Group. The intention of the company was to bring lesser known or rarely performed musicals to the attention of audiences for amateur theatre in Edinburgh.
The company has come a long way in that time, building up a reputation for producing highly polished performances with high standards of acting, singing and choreography.
We hold rehearsals at Bruntsfield Evangelical Church Hall on Leamington Terrace.

|ATTIC THEATRE||Aberdeen||ATTIC THEATRE was developed in the late 1950s by Annie Inglis, with students from the College of Education, who had just completed a production of HAMLET.|
"Developed" rather than "founded", ATTIC, under Annie's firm and guiding hand, has since presented an awesome array of drama to audiences in Aberdeen and beyond.
The first production was THE RIVER LINE, by Charles Morgan; the 100th, MAN OF LA MANCHA.
In between there have been numerous productions;
PLAYS, such as A DAY IN THE DEATH OF JOE EGG (1969), THE BIRTHDAY PARTY (1980), ONE FOR THE ROAD (1992)
MUSICALS, from the classic WEST SIDE STORY (1975), and FIDDLER ON THE ROOF (1982), through the off-Broadway gem THE FANTASTICKS (1988), to the farcical, A FUNNY THING HAPPENED ON THE WAY TO THE FORUM (1993)
PANTOMIMES, from the perennial favourites, CINDERELLA, ALADDIN, DICK WHITTINGTON, to the less conventional TREASURE ISLAND
... and so much more.
ATTIC has performed mainly in Aberdeen Arts Centre and His Majesty's Theatre although other venues include;
Village halls, The Winter Gardens, Cathedrals, Schools, Graveyards, and Provost Skene's House ... for an entertainment officially called IT HAPPENED HERE (1977). Unofficially known as THE HISTORICAL HOUSES, and referred to affectionately by those involved as THE HYSTERICAL HOUSES, for reasons best known to themselves.
|Biggar Theatre Workshop||The Biggar Theatre Workshop was founded in 1971 and since then has become one of the main sources of arts facilities in the district, allowing the people of Biggar and the surrounding areas the opportunity to participate in live theatre as well as creating a performance and arts venue for local and travelling theatre groups.|
The Workshop is housed in the Biggar Corn Exchange, a Grade B listed building dating back to 1860. The building is a major landmark in the town, built on the site of the old rat-infested Meal House. The new Corn Exchange failed to achieve success as a grain market, and became a popular dancing and entertainment venue. In 1935 the Corn Exchange was gifted to the Biggar Burgh Council and the Biggar Theatre Workshop now leases the building from the local council at a nominal rent as its venue for its theatrical performances.
Now nearing completion of the first phase of an extensive re-furbishment project, Biggar Theatre Workshop at The Corn Exchange are actively looking to include the wider community and visiting groups to make best use of the building as a more diverse community resource.
If you have any interest in joining us as a theatre group either on stage or behind the scenes, or even just finding out what we are all about as a potential venue for public or private events/functions please contact us

|Callander Amateur Operatic Society||Callander||We sprang from a small choral group which met as an evening class run by Ian Milligan in the late seventies. Ian was then and continued to be for many years, Head of Music at McLaren High School in Callander.

|Centre Stage Theatre Company||Aberdeen|
The Hub, Elphinstone Road, Old Aberdeen AB24 3TU
|If you are looking to take part in any aspect of the theatre then you have come to the right place. Centre Stage is one of the University's largest and most active societies that offers the chance to take part in all aspects of drama and production, from acting, directing and producing, to lighting, set design, and costumes - we even give you the opportunity to have a go at writing your own play.|
The society puts on four full-scale productions a year, so there are plenty of opportunities to get involved. We also hold a festival of new writing, acting, and directing each spring. Our festival of one act plays uses pieces that have been written by our members, and has been hugely successful over the past few years. Keep an eye out for posters around campus, or notices on the web site, telling you when to come and audition, or volunteer to help out with the backstage work for forthcoming plays.
Centre Stage also holds weekly workshops for its members. These cover all sorts of topics, ranging from stage combat to lighting to Shakespeare, so there is bound to be at least one to interest you. The workshops are also the perfect place to come along and meet the rest of the society and the committee, and discuss any ideas you have for the society.
We are a very social society and have at least one social event a month, aside from our, now institutional, Monday night trips to the pub! In the past we have staged murder mystery evenings, Christmas meals, and the legendary pub golf tour - and the annual masquerade ball is definitely not one to miss.
Centre Stage is always on the lookout for new members, no matter what aspect of the theatre you are interested in. We are a friendly and outgoing bunch, and the society is well worth your membership fee! If you wish to find out more, or become a member, don't hesitate to contact us by e mail at email@example.com, or come along to a Monday night workshop!

|Clydebank Musical Society||Dumbarton||Clydebank Musical Society was formed in 1981 to provide a platform for the development of local talent in all aspects of staging musical productions and encouraging an interest in the performing arts. The Society has not only fulfilled that requirement but has provided years of first class entertainment for Clydebank and surrounding areas.|
The Adult Section has a thriving membership with ages ranging from 16 to 70 years. Rehearsals begin in September and help fill the dark winter months culminating in the show in March. Due to an overwhelming response to auditions for children for Oliver, our Junior Section was formed in 1990 for youngsters aged from 12 to 18 years of age. This section has gone from strength to strength and we consistently have a membership of at least 80 kids with a demand for places that far exceeds the numbers we can accept. In April of each year, we hold 'open workshops' for youngsters where they are given training, by our professional staff, in music, dance, and drama.
Some of our Junior members have enjoyed their taste of the stage so much that they have gone on to study music and drama at college or at the Royal Scottish Academy of Music and Drama. We actively encourage our junior members to join the adult section when they reach 16 years of age, as we believe younger members to be the lifeblood of the Society.
In addition, CMS participate in West Dunbartonshire Council's Christmas show every year and we have a Concert Party who, on request, visit and entertain in homes for the elderly, churches and local community groups. Coupled with the various fundraising events throughout the year, you can be sure there is never a dull moment as a member of Clydebank Musical Society. If you'd like more information on how to join, send an email to email or email .
A very big thank you must go to our audiences, advertisers, sponsors and of course our members. None of the above would be have been possible without their support and loyalty over the years.
