The first meeting of new theatre group Laurencekirk Amateur Musical Society (LAMS) will take place on Tuesday March 15 in the Dickson Hall.

With a very experienced production team at the helm the first production will be Bad Girls The Musical, which will be performed from 14th-17th September this year.

During the evening you will be given information about the forthcoming show and the parts available. You will also learn one of the songs from the show and do a little bit of movement, so wear comfortable clothing and footwear.

Local woman, Susan Hughes is Chairperson and is delighted to be presenting such an opportunity to her local community.

She has been involved in theatre for over 30 years through performing, directing and choreographing.

Following professional training at Italia Conti’s and at East 15 Acting School in London, she worked professionally for three years before taking up teaching acting, dancing and singing.

Susan has lived in Laurencekirk for six years and works at Angus College where she ran the Musical theatre courses before having her two boys.

she has many years experience in directing and choreographing shows in and around Aberdeen and Arbroath, which include Little Shop Of Horrors, Gypsy, Crazy for You, Fame, Disco Inferno, We Will Rock You, West Side Story and many cabaret shows and pantomimes.

“It is now time to start doing something again after having my children and starting up a local musical theatre company is hopefully just what the local area needs to bring out untapped talent and to give people who maybe don’t like being on stage but enjoy being involved with theatre the opportunity to discover hidden talents with helping backstage or front of house.” says Susan.
