2020 is our 25th year and Tom Hudson will return as director, to steer us through the play we first performed in 1995.

Please note that our outdoor promenade performances are in the grounds of Traquair House. The performances take place whatever the weather, so come prepared with suitable clothing and footwear. Scenes move around the grounds on paths and grass, which can be muddy, and if you have any mobility issues please email us. Our plays begin at 7.30 promptly, so make sure you have time to park your car and walk to the start of our plays.


To celebrate a quarter century of promenade performances we are performing our first ever production and we need you to join us.  If you would like to be a member of the cast, a wardrobe mistress (or master) or fancy working back stage we would love to see you at our audition days.

Past, present, and new cast members warmly welcomed to audition – no experience necessary – just a love of live theatre.

We have held our adult (14s and older) auditions and our under 14s will take place at St Joseph’s Centre, Peebles on Sun 9th  Feb. 14.00 – 16.00   Under 14s.

Please note you will need to be available to rehearse weekly and be available for the performances on 27 – 30 May and 3 – 6 June 2020.
