Kirkintilloch Players presents Music From The Movies
The Kirkintilloch Players have been entertaining the good folks of this wee town for almost 100 years now!! That’s a fantastically long time and it actually makes us one of the oldest established clubs in the whole country.
We are renowned for the quality of the productions that we provide down at our very own wee theatre – The Turret – which is located in Eastside and we offer a full calendar of events every year. In January we run our annual Pantomime, currently the venue for this is The Campsie Memorial Halls in Lennoxtown. Our Spring Play features during the month of March, our super talented youth members provide the entertainment every June, this year they are staging Legally Blonde Jnr and our Autumn Play runs in October, so we’re pretty busy all year round!
In a first for the Club, last October we performed a musical revue show titled “Music From The Movies” which ran for four sell out performances. This show was a joint Adult / Junior production, jam packed full of fantastic tunes from the 50’s and 60’s right up to the present day. It was a huge success, the buzz from every audience was amazing, they thoroughly the experience and due to popular demand, we hope to be able to stage “Music From The Movies 2” later on this year. Keep an eye on our Social Media sites for further updates.
We are delighted to have been invited to take part in this year’s Canal Festival, we’re excited to be on the main stage at the Marina on the 31st August, we will be performing from 12:40 till 13:05 and we will be showcasing some of the songs featured in MFTM.
As a Club, we are always very interested in attracting new members. If you or anyone you know would like to find out a bit more about who we are and what we do, either as a potential performer or part of our technical or backstage crew, you will find everything you need on our website.
Looking forward to seeing you all at the Festival.
