HATS NEEDS A TREASURER!

19 Feb

If you are numerate, reliable and honest, please be our treasurer! We need someone to see us through the next show at least until the AGM in August or September. The job involves liaising with the cast and production team to keep track of membership funds and receipts for expenses incurred during the course of the show,  updating financial records and managing the HATS bank account. Advice would be on hand if required, and a (small) cash reward could be negotiated for the right candidate.  

Please email info@hatsedinburgh.co.uk if you can help!

DRACULA

25 Jan

 

Holyrood Amateur Theatrical Society present Dracula, an adaptation of Bram Stoker’s novel by Liz Lochhead, Scotland’s supremely talented national makar. Complete with all the trimmings of vampire legend, HATS’ modern adaptation puts the audience well within biting range of the blood-thirsty count. Will the earnest Jonathan Harker be quick enough to protect his rich wife and her sister from his evil intent? Or perhaps they will be locked in mental anguish for all eternity…

Don’t miss the terror, the tragedy, the torment that is Dracula!

3rd, 4th and 5th February 2011, 7.30 pm

‘Lazybed’ Auditions

7 Nov

HATS announce a 2011 production of Iain Crichton Smith’s Lazybed.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

“Nature red in tooth and claw”

Lazybed is about a man who stays in bed and refuses to get up: a comic meditation on the vanity of work; mortality; the metaphysical and the real; love and marriage. We are delighted to be bringing Iain Crichton Smith’s best-loved character, the cantankerous and metaphysical Murdo, to the stage.

Following the sad closure of the Roxy Art House, dates and venue are yet to be reconfirmed, but we’re working on a three night run at the end of March or beginning of April 2011 at a suitably exciting Edinburgh venue.
