Tales and memories

FORFAR Tales – the exciting new Forfar Dramatic Society production - is gathering momentum and members of the society would love you to get involved.

The project will come to a climax in mid-May when the society presents a brand new theatre piece developed from stories told and memories shared by Forfar folk.

So far the society has staged a Forfar Tales quiz, a story cafe and a dance cafe, all of which were designed to generate materials for the show.

And they were effective. Many surprising stories emerged.

The FDS Youth Theatre is also very involved in the project.

Young members have been participating in workshops exploring different aspects of life in the town.

They’ve also been out and about interviewing family and friends to hear and record the tales they had to tell.

And if all that isn’t enough, the Society has developed a blog, which gives everyone the opportunity to swap stories.

Which is where you come in. You can access the blog at www.forfardramtic.wordresss.com.

Follow that link and you’ll be able to read the many contributions already made. You’ll also be able to add your own stories or comment on those already posted.

So please, help Forfar Dramatic Society create a memorable piece of theatre, by adding to the rich stream of stories and memories that will make up the script.

If blogging is not your thing, you can email stories and reminiscences to forfartales@btinternet.com.

And if email isn’t your preferred method of communication, you can send stories to Forfar tales, Forfar Dramatic Society, 132 East High Street, Forfar.

Of course, joining in with the story telling is only one of the ways that you can be part of this exciting project.

Anyone with an interest in performing would be very welcome. Rehearsals are held on Tuesday evenings at 7.30 pm in Forfar Dramatic Society’s Clubrooms at 132 East High Street.

The Society would be delighted to welcome new members along any Tuesday evening.

Finally, you’ll be able to be part of Forfar Tales by going along to the show in May and enjoying the entertainment.

Further details of performances and ticket prices will be available soon.

And you can keep up to date with the project on the blog or by visiting the Forfar Dramatic Society website at www.forfardramatic.com.
