Wick and Thurso teams preparing for community drama festival
Popular drama adjudicator Brian Marjoribanks will be returning to Caithness later this month for the SCDA District Festival of One-Act Plays.
The event will take place in the Assembly Rooms in Wick on Saturday, February 29, and Mr Marjoribanks, who has adjudicated in the county at the music festival and for the SCDA on several occasions, will use his judging expertise to critique three productions.
Wick Junior Players are competing in both the one-act play festival and the Highland youth festival with their play Streuth, while Thurso Players will present two entries – Forget, an original play by director Faye Sutherland, and 54% Acrylic.
The district festival winners will not need to travel far for the Highland divisional round on March 27 and 28, as it is being staged in Thurso High School.
Paying his first visit to the north then will be experienced adjudicator Alan Haslett, from Ireland, who proved very popular last year when he adjudicated the Scottish finals.
This year's Scottish finals will be held in Kirkwall in April.
