Mike would have liked to have given everyone a role, but there was such a fantastic turn-out for the Auditions, that he couldn’t!

Many thanks to all who auditioned and made his casting job so difficult; and commiserations to those of you who were unsuccessful this time.

Rehearsals are already underway on Tuesdays & Thursdays.

Our November 2017 production
The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie
by Jay Presson Allen adapted from the novel by Muriel Spark

Directed by Carol Meredith

“Safety does not come first.
Goodness, Truth and Beauty come first.”
The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie Banner “I am dedicated to you in my prime”

Jean Brodie is a liberated and charismatic schoolteacher at the Marcia Blaine School for Girls, in 1930s Edinburgh. She instructs her girls in Italian art, romance, and Fascist politics.

Miss Brodie concentrates her efforts on a small group of favoured girls, the ‘Brodie set’: beautiful Jenny; timid Mary MacGregor; funny and dramatic Monica; and sharp-witted Sandy, who watches carefully as Miss Brodie instructs her charges to “do as I say, and not as I do.”

When Teddy Lloyd, a handsome art teacher, tries to reignite a past, passionate affair, Miss Brodie retreats into the arms of meek and respectable choir master, Gordon Lowther. Her unconventional behaviour puts her job and reputation in danger.

Will Miss Brodie’s dedication to the teaching profession, and to the hearts and minds of her girls, keep her in her prime?

The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie is a gripping, entertaining, powerful drama of adolescence and adulthood, of betrayal and manipulation, and the powerful, lasting effects of a charismatic teacher.
