A crisis of stage lights blacking out on Edzell Drama Group actors that sparked a nail-biting drama to raise money for a new system in time for the autumn production has been resolved.
With the council’s assistance, new lights have been bought and installed and the show will go on at Edzell’s Inglis Hall at 7.30pm on Friday, November 25 and Saturday, November 26.
Two plays are scheduled - a contrast of ‘whodunnit’ and comedy (Death in Character) and all the usual characters and catch phrases in a specially compiled version of Dad’s Army
Anne Newsome, drama group chairman, said: “We had an off-stage drama to find £1500 towards the new system thankfully now all set up and ready to shine on our next show.
“So far we’ve raised £1250 but we really need full house ticket sales to hit our target. So our plea to Edzell and area residents is please purchase your tickets - on sale in advance at Edzell’s SPAR, Post Office or Tweedie - and on the door each night.”
In preview of the show, a cow was spotted at the Drama Group’s rehearsal this week at the Inglis Hall. Paul Miller is at the front end and Jake Wood at the back.
