We've found out that the Killin Komedy Festival is taking place over 4th-5th May this year. Always a good weekend away for Perth Drama Club, it's an opportunity for us to express our comedic side for a good cause - raising funds for the Scottish Community Drama Association. A mixture of sketches and short plays usually happens...followed by the inevitable party. Contact Killin Komedy Festival for more information about the event, or ourselves if you have an idea of something that Perth Drama Club could perform.

Two down, three to go - 02/02/2018

We've done two shows now and the good news is that the audience have been brilliant in both shows. But now the bad news - you've only three more chances to see the wonderful members of Perth Drama Club perform "Mother Hubbard."

You 'll find us at the The Salutation Hotel tonight and tomorrow night from 7.30pm and from 2.30pm tomorrow afternoon for the matinee. There are tickets left for both evening performances, but we're almost full for the matinee. Tickets will be available on the door and from Concorde Music...but you'd better hurry if you want to get them from the latter.

So get your best glad rags on and hop on down - you won't be disappointed.
