"Twelfth Night" or  "What You Will"

by William Shakespeare


Performed by the Mitchell School of Drama - A brand new production of Shakespeare's play.

Directed & choreographed by Rhona Mitchell
Musical Direction by Ashley Forbes


From the company who devised and performed ‘Doorways’ ‘Our
Scotland’ and 'The Comedy of Errors' comes a brand new version of a classic. 

MSD brings you a brand new production of Shakespeare’s late comedy of love, loss, deception and confusion. Shipwrecked on the shores of a strange land, Viola believes her twin brother Sebastian drowned. Disguising herself as a boy she finds herself a go-between for the man she serves and the woman who refuses to love him. Stories of love, loss and deception collide with the teenage dreams of the mobile and Facebook generation.


The Selfish Giant

Folding Theatre Puppet Company







Based on Oscar Wilde’s much-loved children’s story, The Selfish Giant is performed in the Folding Theatre Puppet Company’s distinctive and beautiful style.


Whilst taking tea in the garden the storyteller relates the story of The Selfish Giant for the audience. Why is the Giant so grumpy and selfish? He tells of how the Giant returned home one day to find his garden full of children. How will the Giant react…



Garidge Theatre presents:



A comedy by Gerald Sibleyras

In association with Samuel French Ltd.





Brought to you by the same company who performed The Sunshine Boys at last year’s Garioch Theatre Festival, this Tom Stoppard translation of Gerald Sibleyras’s Le Vent Des Peupliers’ (The Wind in the Poplars) introduces us to three ‘old soldiers’ from the first world war who are now living in a French military retirement home. One has a piece of shrapnel in his head, one has a gammy leg and the other suffers from agoraphobia. Is escape their only option?



By the Seat of Your Pants




A hilarious family show venturing into the world of three men and a chair!



Plutot La Vie’s latest family production ventures into the world of three men and a Chair!

Nothing to be done and nothing to do. Fritz, Franz and Rudy sit and wait. Expectation! Hope! Boredom! Delight! Not to take things sitting down, they put their best feet forward to make the grade and avoid a kick in the pants.  A hilarious exploration of relationships, slapstick and chairs as three men await their fate By the Seat of Their Pants.

By the Seat of Your Pants is a fast, visual, funny show in a clown style for family audiences. By the Seat of Your Pants is a brand new show for young people aged 8+ and their families and is a co- production with Howden Park Centre.

Directed by Magdalena Schamberger and an original music score composed by Andrew Cruickshank with production design by Iain Halket.

A New Doric Play by Charles Barron







In an Aberdeenshire school that had better remain anonymous, something strange is boiling up in the kitchens. Fleeman Productions takes the lid off the plot of this bubbling Doric comedy by Charles Barron - and you'll never again feel the same way about school dinners.
