Hairspray flyer

Thanks to Kevin Woollard here’s the Hairspray ticket order flyer with all the details you need.

We have a smaller capacity venue than usual, a large cast and a popular show so we expect performances to sell out so please get your orders in early.  The easiest way to do this is by calling the ticket hotline or, better still asking a cast member.

2014 Shows

We’re delighted to announce that we have two blockbusters lined up for 2014.

From 9 – 12 April Ronan Radin will direct Hairspray at Edinburgh Academy with assistance from Andrew McDivvit (MD) and Katie Renton (Choreography).   Clare Saunders and Dan Gilmore will be assisting on musical coaching , Jack Nixon is assisting Katie Renton on choreography with ‘Jimmy’ assisting Ronan.

Auditions were held on Sunday 15th December f at Trinity Academicals Rugby Football Club and a cast of 43 was selected.  Our biggest for some time.

In August (more details later)  Claire Stewart (supported by Kerry Anne Rae (MD) and Lynne Moyes (Choreo) will present our biggest ever show.  Les Miserables (at Inverleith Church Hall)

To say we are excited about these two highly contrasting shows would be something of an understatement!

Sold out two nights running

 

The 36 strong cast of FCT's Seussical the Musical

The 36 strong cast of FCT’s Seussical the Musical

Seussical is a triumph.  We sold out on opening night and again tonight.  We couldn’t have squeezed another body into the wonderful Pleasance Theatre.  (Have we mentioned how truly wonderful this theatre is and how brilliant the staff are Chris and Tom in particular.  No?  well they’re magic.)

Friday night is approaching sell out so get your orders into the hotline quick but there is still availability on Saturday strangely.

Alice, Niall and Steph have done an incredible job in their first ever FCT show and they really are part of the #FCTfam now.  We love them all.

After a tough year financially last year this looks like getting us well back on track (which is just as well as we had to spend a lot replacing the doors at Bangholm this week.  Thanks to Rene for sorting that.)

Seriously, you need to see this show.  Don’t be the one in awkward conversations where people say “Remember Seussical” and you say.  “That’s so annoying I never went but I went shopping instead.”

And one last thing.  We need a poll.  WE haven’t had one for ages.  So fill this one in…

 

Seussical it is for Easter 2013

It's only our audition poster at this point but the real one will be up soon

We’re all getting very excited about the prospect of working on Seussical with our new directing team (new to FCT that is  – they are a very experienced young team having worked with the Cecilians in Glasgow on  a number of occasions – Check out their version of Guys ad Dolls in Glasgow from 13 – 16 February).

Seussical was written by the same team that wrote Ragtime and Once on This Island, both of which won FCT Evening News Drama Awards so you can expect another stunning show.

Alice McNaughter will direct supported by Niall (as MD) and Steph (Choreographer).  We held the auditions yesterday so the excitement is high in FCT land as cast wait to see who got in and what parts they are to play.  All will be revealed very soon…
