CARNOUSTIE Theatre Club is one of two Angus representatives at the northern divisional round of the annual national one-act plays competition organised by the Scottish Community Drama Association, which takes place at the Webster Memorial Theatre, Arbroath, tomorrow (Saturday).

Curtain up is at 7 p.m.

They are performing ‘Yellow on the Broom’ by Anne Downie, adapted from the book by Betsy White and abridged by the club. It tells the story of travelling people in the 1930s.

Carnoustie won the Angus heat of the competition held at the Webster Theatre last month.

They were also the winners of this competition in 2012.

Forfar Dramatic Society is also representing Angus. They are performing the hilarious Scots comedy ‘Hogmanay’ by James Scotland tonight (Friday).

The adjudicator is the popular Dr Russell Boyce who spent most of his career at the Royal Scottish Academy of Music and Drama where he was director and Dean of Drama.

Also taking part are winning clubs from Perthshire, Aberdeen and Orkney. They are Aberfeldy Drama Club, Stromness Drama Club and Ury Players Youth (Stonehaven) last night (Thursday); Castlegate Theatre School, Aberdeen, and Atholl Players, Pitlochry, tonight (Friday) and Palace Players, Kirkwall, tomorrow (Saturday).

The drama clubs perform the short plays followed each night by public comments and judging by Dr Boyce. The winners and runners up take part in the next round of the competition, being held at the Pitlochry Festival Theatre on 18th to 20th April 18 to 20.
