Rehearsals are underway and going very well. We are currently learning the music and will start the acting from the beginning of March. Set design and costumes are well in hand, and it’s safe to say everyone is thoroughly enjoying themselves. It’s going to be a really exciting production. We are still happy to hear from anybody who wants to help backstage, props and costumes, hair and makeup, or backstage crew on the night.

The Biggar Theatre Workshop was founded in 1971 and since then has become one of the main sources of arts facilities in the district, allowing the people of Biggar and the surrounding areas the opportunity to participate in live theatre as well as creating a performance and arts venue for local and travelling theatre groups.
The Workshop is housed in the Biggar Corn Exchange, a Grade B listed building dating back to 1860. The building is a major landmark in the town, built on the site of the old rat-infested Meal House. The new Corn Exchange failed to achieve success as a grain market, and became a popular dancing and entertainment venue. In 1935 the Corn Exchange was gifted to the Biggar Burgh Council and the Biggar Theatre Workshop now leases the building from the local council at a nominal rent as its venue for its theatrical performances.
Now nearing completion of the first phase of an extensive re-furbishment project, Biggar Theatre Workshop at The Corn Exchange are actively looking to include the wider community and visiting groups to make best use of the building as a more diverse community resource.
If you have any interest in joining us as a theatre group either on stage or behind the scenes, or even just finding out what we are all about as a potential venue for public or private events/functions please contact us by clicking on the link below
