The Livingston Players is a Scottish Charitable incorporated Organisation (SCIO) and is fully affiliated to The National Operatic and Dramatic Association and The Scottish Community Drama Association.
We generally perform three productions each year. One is a musical usually performed in the last week in May, a youth production in September and a play produced in January. We perform our main productions in the Brian Duguid Auditorium at Howden Park Centre.
In addition, we perform one act plays from time to time.
We also have a “Showstoppers” group who can present an evening of entertainment featuring song and dance from a wide variety of musical theatre on request by other charities or community groups.
“The Sound of Musicals”
A celebration of 50 years of The Livingston Players
Bringing Quality theatre to our community
Established back in 1970, the Livingston Players (then the only Amateur Dramatic society in West Lothian) formed to bring amateur drama to Livingston residents and surrounding areas., and so to celebrate our amazing 50 years in show business we were planning a Showcase with a fantastic selection of musical song and dance numbers from many of our past productions in May 2020.
However, like everyone else, our activities have been curtailed by the restrictions in place because of the
COVID-19 pandemic. With the continuation of the lock down, it is clear that we will be unable to put on our 50th Anniversary Showcase in May 2020. We tried to move this to the end of the year – November 2020 when it is officially 50 years from when we started, however, the theatre is fully booked and unable to accommodate us.
We are still hoping that we will be able to go ahead with our Youth production in September, and to stage a play, as usual, in January 2021.
We do hope you will all come and support us later in the year with our ongoing programme.
Meantime we send our best wishes to all our members and supporters and hope that you are staying safe and well. Please take care of yourselves and your families/friends at this difficult time, and we will be back treading the boards before we know it!
