This year our Christmas panto will be "Aladdin", and as usual that means it's almost time to get started with rehearsals!
Ever thought you'd like to have a go on stage? Well now's the time to come along to the Aladdin auditions and show us your stuff. This year our Aladdin script has been written by some of our very talented theatre club members, Mary Sommerville and Kerwin Robertson, so you can get yourselves ready for some hilarious jokes and situations, hand crafted for our Culter audience!
Whether you want one of the main parts, a supporting role, or just to be one of our great chorus, young or old, we'd love for you to come along.

You may have noticed our new Culter Theatre Club logo, which is now on our Facebook, Twitter and Website. For many years we'd just used a basic "theatre masks" icon to represent the club, but recently we decided we should have our very own logo!
The new logo uses the letters "CTC" in a bold design that shows everything linked together. The red colour stands for the stage curtains, the yellow the stage lights, and the purple for the Grampian mountains. The black areas are also an integral part of the logo - as they represent our amazing back stage crew and all the people who work away without being seen. In our logo they're right there making the rest of the logo work and just as important as all the rest.
We've also launched our new website, with a fresh new theme that is mobile friendly. Our previous site had stood us well for many years, but didn't work well on mobile phones, whereas our new design should be much better when displayed on either a desktop, tablet or phone!
NEW AGM DATE ANNOUNCED
The Culter Theatre Club AGM will now take place on Thursday 22nd March.
The previous date had to be postponed due to the adverse weather conditions. We apologise for any inconvenience and hope you can make the revised date.
Thursday 22nd March 2018 - 7.30pm - NOTE REVISED DATE
Annual General Meeting
It’s that time of year again when we have the Culter Theatre Club AGM at Culter Village Hall. We'll provide reports on the club, look back at what we've accomplished in 2017, and let you know what we're planning for 2018 - and give you the opportunity to let us know what you'd like to do! We'll also be providing an update on finances and the accounts.
We are always looking for new members to join the committee to allow us to continue putting on productions to the high standard we are known for. Our club members have a wide range of talents, from acting, singing, set painting, costume making, lighting and sound, painting, set construction and prop making. If you feel you can help us in any way, whether back stage or on stage we need you.
The future of the Club rests with the people that give their time and talents to help organise things, and we currently do not have enough people to do that. We urgently require Directors, Producers, Musical Directors and committee members for the club to continue.
The AGM will run from 7.30pm and we'll have some refreshments available. Kids - please ask you mums and dads to come along to the AGM if possible. We look forward to seeing you there.
