Kirkintilloch Players is one of the oldest amateur drama clubs in Scotland
That doesn’t mean, however that we have old-fashioned ideas. Kirkintilloch Players is a friendly club with members of all ages. The Youth section of our club is for school age children from Primary 6 upwards. The adult section starts at eighteen but has no upper limit!
With two full-length productions, a pantomime and Adult and Youth entries in the Scottish Community Drama Association One Act Festivals each year we are a very busy amateur drama club. Not only do we have opportunities for actors to “tread the boards” we welcome people to join our talented technical team behind the scenes. No previous experience or knowledge is required only a willingness to learn and to be part of the team at Kirkintilloch Players.
On the social side we enjoy a variety of events: Quiz Night, Bowling Night, Golf Outing, Luvvies Lunch……..
We are based in The Turret Theatre, Eastside, Kirkintilloch (although we stage our pantomime in Lenzie Academy to allow for much larger audiences). The Turret Theatre was refurbished in 1995 and has sixty seats with access for people with disabilities. Come along and be a member of the audience, an actor, a member of stage crew, a set builder/painter or a tea-maker. You can be sure of a warm Kirkintilloch Players welcome.
