We’re off and running

The show kicked off on Friday night to standing ovations.  A full house on Saturday afternoon and a remarkable one off performance by understudy to Rebecca Gilhooley, Rebecca Clarke playing Sarah.

Audiences are raving about the show and tomorrow night (Tuesday 10th)  the show’s review by Josie Balfour will appear in the Evening News.

What’s more the ENDA’s judges have been in and one enjoyed it so much they’re coming back again.

This year the ENDAs are a little different.  The public get to vote for their favourite show,  so please do your bit and pick up a voucher in the Evening News and cast your vote.

And if FCT is not enough for you on its own you can choose from a wide range of other shows on the Fringe featuring our alumni.

All this week, straight after Guys and Dolls you can enjoy Andrew Dyer’s A little Late Night Music from 10.30 to Midnight at Inverleith Church Hall.

Random ACT (Musically directed by our very own Neil Somerville who helped us with Guys and Dolls) put on Stephen Sondheim’s “Putting it Together” from 9 – 15 August at 22:50 at Augustine’s venue 152 and from 17 – 22, 24 – 30 August at 23:40.

Or there’s SpiltMilk’s Under Milk Wood starring our very own Becky Martin (now acting under the name of Evelyn Adams) from 11th-15th August at 10pm – Symposium Hall (across the road from Festival Theatre, new development behind Surgeons Hall).  Here’s a wee taster of that one for you…


Better late than never

Sorry it’s taken so long to post this.  But life is hectic in FCT Land.

FCT were honoured to be invited to a civic reception by The Lord Provost of Edinburgh in The City Chambers just after Ragtime finished.  It was held to mark the occassion of our 30th anniversary and the assembled company were riveted by a great performance from Andrew McDivvit and Rebecca Gilhooley, ably supported by Kerry-Ann on keyboards.

Andrew certainly enjoyed it…
