Whisky Galore – A Musical!

whisky-logo_transp

 1943: the curse of rationing has visited the remote Hebridean islands of Little Todday and Great Todday and the thirsty islanders have all but run out of uisge beatha – the water of life.

 And it’s not just the whisky drought causing problems, either. Good Catholic girl Peggy Macroon has fallen for one of the soldiers stationed on the islands, Sergeant Odd, who’s not just English, but Protestant to boot! Catriona MacLeod is having trouble prising meek schoolmaster George Campbell away from his Wee Free dragon of a mother. And the dragon herself seems too much in sympathy with the army authorities for some people’s liking . .

 When the S.S. Cabinet Minister runs aground with fifty thousand cases of whisky aboard, the islanders rush to take advantage of the unexpected bounty. But then the officious Captain Waggett, the English commander of the Home Guard, learns of the illicit salvage operation – and is ordered to confiscate the liquor!

 As a 60th Anniversary treat, we’ve chosen to revive the most popular show in PFT’s history as our first ever Autumn repertory production. With a score that conjures up both the 1940s and the unmistakable sounds of the Western Isles, performed by a highly talented cast of actor-musicians, this critically acclaimed and universally loved 2009 production went on to become the best selling show in our 60 year history!

 Back by popular demand,  Whisky Galore – A Musical! promises to be the perfect Autumn treat. Book now to secure your seat!

 Tickets range from £26.00 – £32.50 (concessions available)

Collecting heather proving to be difficult…

We need good long heather as it is the stems we use. We have to climb several hundred feet in our landrover and with the recent bad weather the track is proving difficult to climb as it has become really slippy.

We need to ensure that we have a good supply of heather collected for over the winter months when it may prove too diificult to collect any heather.
