We are about to start rehearsing a brilliant Scottish Comedy for May. Keep an eye out for rehearsal photos.
Two one act comedies about the Cairns family.
Nothing Ever Happens:
Kate Cairns, a farmer's wife, complains that "nothing ever happens'', then it all does!
In this sequel to the author's "Nothing Ever Happens", we return to the hilarious ups and downs of the Cairns Family. The fun begins when Dougie and Kate Cairns awaken from their slumbers before cock-crow. Dougie is in an amorous mood, but has to come to terms with Kate's rejection. One comical situation leads to another.
Dougie Cairns, Farmer Malcolm Muir
Kate Cairns, his wife Anna Ludwig
Meg Cairns, daughter Michelle Paget
Wattie Donaldson, Neighbouring farmer David Mackle
Kirsty Donaldson, Wattie’s domineering wife Jacqueline McDougald
Geordie Donaldson, son Andrew Goldie
Jake Tanner, Tavern landlord Jim Softley
Rosie Tanner, Jake’s daughter Fiona Ramsay
Jamie Dow, Rosie’s friend Jim Wallace
We are always looking for new technical and backstage crew, and people to cover bar and front of house, so get in touch if that’s something you might want to try and we’ll try and get you involved for this one (if there are too many volunteers we can always roll you over to the next show). You don’t have to be experienced, just willing to get stuck in.
ANY QUESTIONS: Carole on 01864 504278, or email@example.com

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.
