Update from the Board:
Since our last update, we have continued to keep the club active during the lockdown.
The programme has included:
We have continued to monitor Scottish Government guidance looking to take advantage of any new opportunities as the arise

We have managed to negotiate new dates for the productions that we had planned to stage in March and June. We’re still choosing not to publicise these dates or open ticket sales until such times as we are certain the shows can go ahead. There is still considerable doubt as to when that might be. So, keep an eye out for performance dates for the re-scheduled “Inspector Drake and the Black Widow” and “The Witches”.

In light of the continued uncertainty over when community facilities such as Studio 132 will be able to re-open, any restrictions (e.g. physical distancing) that may still apply and when live performances will be safe and viable in the studio we are considering alternative plans for the late Summer and Autumn. These may involve film work, radio drama production and ways of sharing performances at a distance. We will update on all of these as plans firm up.

2020 is the year in which FDS celebrates its 90th anniversary. We’re still hoping to celebrate the anniversary with members and friends later in the year, but you’ll appreciate that detailed planning is difficult in current circumstances. That doesn’t prevent us from considering the options and opportunities. Club members have already generated some ideas that we are investigating. But we are still open to suggestions.

Further updates will follow as appropriate. In the meantime, stay well and we hope to have the lights back on at Studio 132 before too long.
