Wick Players are encouraging young people to get involved in community drama – whether they wish to have a go at acting or are happy to lend a hand in a behind-the-scenes role.

The group recently started open evenings and club nights for those aged from 12 to their twenties, featuring drama activities and script readings in a fun environment.

These take place in Wick Players' club rooms in Moray Street, Wick, on Monday evenings from 7pm to 9pm.

Secretary Jayden Alexander said: "We have been so lucky to have such a thriving youth section over the past few years and the club would be delighted to welcome some new faces and to encourage young people to get involved in community drama.

"We want to hear from people who perhaps fancy having a go at getting on the stage or even helping out behind the scenes, whether this be in the wardrobe department or with lighting or scenery. It takes a team to make a production happen and the club would just love to welcome some new faces.

"We have been in contact with Wick High School, Wick Youth Club, Caithness Voluntary Group, the Caithness Music Festival committee and Wick Tesco to make them aware of our open nights and we would like to thank these organisations for their support."

Wick Players received £1000 from Tesco Bags of Help in 2018 which went towards the purchase of new equipment for junior players.

The group's annual general meeting is scheduled for Wednesday, October 27 (at 7pm), in the club rooms, with new members welcome.
