Edzell Drama Group to perform popular Footlights revue

Edzell Drama Group are set to perform their popular ‘Footlights’ revue for one night only on Saturday, March 28, with curtain up at 7.30 pm in the village’s Inglis Hall.

This is will be the fifth delivery of a series of ‘Sketches, Monologues and Music’, and the show will be adopting the same successful formula that’s been included for the last four years.

The club’s first offering of 2015 includes material drawn from a variety of sources, including the club’s very own Sheena Weitzel (who has written ‘The Generation Gap’), ‘A Bit of Fry and Laurie’ and ‘Alas Smith and Jones’.

Additionally, Anne Newsome and Rosemary Spence deliver the highly entertaining ‘Another Day, Another Gossip’ and Susan and Rosie Myles show how the tables can be turned in ‘Interview with an Applicant’.

Anne Newsome and Andy Turnbull have a disagreement over a ‘Wrong Number’ and Peter Myles offers some questionable advice to one of his colleagues who has discovered an ‘Unexploded Bomb’.

Finally, Peter and Anne are on the wrong side of a cultural divide born of the peculiarities of Aberdeenshire place names and language, as a local man contacts the ‘Caledonia Bank’ call centre.

Musical asides are also included in the show, with a very talented harpist linking the sketches, and the evening concludes with a medley of popular tunes that the audience will be invited to join in with.

The entertainment takes place either side of an interval, when the usual refreshments will be served and a raffle will be held.

Tickets are priced at £7 each (£3.50 for under 12s) and available from the Spar Grocer and the No.63 coffee shop, both on the High Street.
