We'll be back in 2021!

We look forward to seeing you all again in 2021 - Stay Safe

As you'll all appreciate, Culter Theatre Club has been affected by the COVID-19 pandemic and the lockdown and social distancing requirements like everyone else. 

The committee had been waiting to to see how the situation developed over the last few months, however we have now had to take the hard decision not to put on our Christmas Panto in 2020.  This would have been our 30th year.

The health and safety of our audience, cast and crew was paramount in this decision.  Auditions and panto rehearsals would start in just a couple of weeks time, however with social distancing in place these would be impossible for us in practical terms.  Additionally if at any time anyone became ill, they, and potentially the whole cast/crew would have to self isolate for fourteen days - this may even be the case right through show time.  With the existing social distancing rules our seated capacity would be reduced by 80%, all of which makes it unsustainable to put on a production this year and led us to this decision.

We are very much hoping to be able to put on a show in Summer next year, and of course all being well our 30th panto after that - which will be bigger and better than ever!  We'd like to take this opportunity to thank all our supporters, young and old, and we very much look forward to seeing you all in 2021!  In the meantime we will be having a (socially distanced) AGM in September - further details to follow soon.

Jack and his Amazing Beanstalk - Tickets on Sale!

WE'RE OFFICIALLY SOLD OUT!

Jack and his Amazing Beanstalk Poster

When Jack takes their odd looking cow to be milked he meets Jill - but what happens next is not quite what they expect. When his mum Dame Lumber finds out she tells them they have to sell the cow or they'll have nothing to eat!  Unfortunately this doesn't quite go Jack's way either and all he ends up with is a handful of beans.

Meanwhile, Baron Landscape the nasty land developer, wants the whole forest for himself so he can chop down all the trees and evict all the villagers.  Will he succeed? Plus there are all those strange noises that keep coming from the clouds - legend has it there's a giant up there!

With loads of laughs, and a script specially written by our very own Culter Theatre Club members, this show promises to be a hilarious clamber up the beanstalk for all ages!

Annual General Meeting 2019

Annual General Meeting

Tuesday 5th March 2019 @ 7.30pm - Annual General Meeting

MOTION TO AMEND THE CONSTITUTION
The committee will be proposing a motion to adopt a revised constitution for the club at the AGM this year, a copy of which can be downloaded here.  If you have any comments that you wish to make prior to the meeting please get in touch and let us know.
 
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 2018, and let you know what we're planning for 2019 - 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.

New CTC Logo & Website

New Website

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!
