It is with heavy hearts that we announce that the club have agreed to CANCEL our Annual Pantomime for this year 2020. This is based on forces outwith the control of the club and has been a very difficult decision to make.
This year would have been our 52nd Annual Pantomime, and this is also the first time we have had to cancel the pantomime, so this is a sad day for everyone at Stranraer Drama Club.
We have made no plans currently for our 2021 programme, due to the uncertainty we currently face. We apologise for inconvenience.
Rest assured that Stranraer Drama Club will return Bigger and Stronger for 2021!
It's Friday, time for a new edition of Community Connections. 🥳
This one focuses on outdoor performances and contains my first online recorded interview. Many thanks to Richard at Shakespeare at Traquair for sharing his experiences, neither of us had filmed an online interview before with the aim of sharing it in this way.
