‘Plays To Go’ set for the Bute stage

Rehearsals for Bute Amateur Players' 'Plays To Go' are gathering pace.

Rehearsals for Bute Amateur Players' 'Plays To Go' are gathering pace.

 

Bute’s local theatre group, the Bute Amateur Players, are busy rehearsing a series of short plays to be performed around the island next month.

The five pieces, written by Jean McConnell, Bridget Derrett and Richard James and all with settings and subjects which could easily be seen on a normal day on Bute, will come together to form ‘Plays To Go’, an evening of plays and songs to be performed in Port Bannatyne, Kingarth and Rothesay.

They comprise three shorter items, each performed on seaside deckchairs, and two slightly longer one-act plays, both set in a restaurant, plus songs and music from several of the Amateur Players’ cast members, including Irene McGregor, Dorothy McDonald, Claire MacMillan and Steve Smulski.

We caught up with the group’s rehearsals at Rothesay Pavilion on Wednesday night - and can only say that once each of the pieces is ready to be performed, audiences should be in for a real treat.
