 What a fantastic 5 star experience of Wiz around Oz at Bowhill country estate! I would totally recommend this group. The actors were very engaging and enthusiastic. Loved the interaction. My 3 year old didn’t really know about the story of Wizard of Oz but by the end of it he was able to talk about the story and characters. It was a big group yet they still managed to involve everyone in the story. Great costumes too. Hope to participate in another walking theatre production soon.

Fantastic 1920′s themed Murder Mystery for my sisters hen party last night. You were amazing! Made the night go like clock work, your performance & your interaction with the guests & the “bride to be” was just amazing. Can’t recommend highly enough! Thank you, thank you, thank you!!

Thank you so much for your fantastic performance of A Wonderland Adventure. It was a wonderful, interactive performance that got the whole family involved and it was a delight to see the crowd exploring the garden following the White Rabbit. And well done to the performers and families who braved the somewhat torrential rain during the second performance!

This promoter of professional touring theatre companies, gives a ‘highly recommended’ for the performance at the Scottish Traditional Boat Festival 2014. We are one of the four events chosen for Homecoming Scotland.  Standards were high and it was a pleasure to get Scotland’s top touring company, for Street Theatre.

Today at the Portsoy school potted sports one of the parents announced ‘it was fabulous and we got to walk with them. I know I should have guessed by the name “walking theatre”. We go to a lot of show brought by neat, but were never IN one, “haste ye back” Shelley and Alex.

All around her agreed and maybe, just maybe,  another Production might come back to our Maritime Theme Festival.

I wanted to send a note to say thank you so much for the wonderful event The Walking Theatre  Company created for is this past Summer. …my wife & I celebrated our 25th Wedding Anniversary by flying 42 friends and family from around the world to spend a week together at the Hafton Castle in Scotland. Without a doubt, the ‘Whisky Way’ Walking Theatre performance, and the Highland Games your team created for us was a highlight for each and every one of us! I was so impressed with how you were able to create a fun & engaging atmosphere that appealed to all members of our motley crew – ages 5 – 70! We have many fond memories of our time in Scotland, and it certainly would not have been so special without your team! Thanks!!

Just back from ‘MacBeth’s Way’…in Dalmuir Park. Really enjoyed it, fun and exciting. It was my daughters first experience of seeing Shakespeare and I’m happy to report she loved it. Great idea! Just a pity the weather wasn’t nicer, however, the rain didn’t spoil our enjoyment at all! Well done!

Thanks to all the crew at our Hillhouse Murder Mystery! It was a great wee feature, which fitted in perfectly to the location and set a great tone for our whole wedding weekend.I loved the fact that the team came early enough to think through how best to use all the rooms in the house. I wasn’t expecting that amount of attention to detail. All the characters were appropriately ridiculous and over the top.Great fun enjoyed by all…

What a wonderful event. Not only did you enthrall and involve the children (sorry, mice) but you did the same to the adults. It was clear that your food and drink was very much appreciated and it took me back to the nettles, violets and roses of my child-hood. There could have been no better way to celebrate my first Watch event as a Vice Chairman and I had had no expectation of becoming Lord Woodmouse – I might have to ask that my SWT badge is changed to reflect my elevation in the mouse world.

Right from the word go there was non-stop fun, frolicking and laughter, a great evening that brought all 20 of our hens together working to solve the mystery, who dunnit?? We have had such lovely comments back from everyone and just wanted to pass the love onto you all Rebecca Bloom, Simon Linnell, Karen Bartke, Robert Howat. Hope you all got home safe and sound :) Will leave feedback on your website and definitely happily recommend “The Walking Theatre Company” to anyone looking for an mischievously fun and entertaining evening!

Huge thanks for the bespoke team building event, as a newly formed team we really needed an experience to gel us together and our Murder Mystery experience will certainly be remembered for a long time to come! Alana and the team were so helpful in shaping the event to suit our individual needs and spent time finding out what our team objectives were so that these could be embedded into the day. The session was interactive and so much fun the whole team had the opportunity to participate and the fact that the actors arrived in character and remained in character right up until the end really added to the dynamic of the day.”

My first Murder Mystery, and it was amazing! The Walking Theatre Company are brilliant. Acting was so convincing that I actually thought Simon was Russian!! Really good storyline and very, very funny. Lovely people. They had a chat with everyone after they finished. Thanks for a great weekend. Will definitely come to see you all again.

Dear Sadie and Co – thank you so much for such a fun time last night at Kilmartin House Museum. How four people can keep 44 others so well entertained is amazing. We are all looking forward to developing a night at Lismore Gaelic Heritage Centre, can’t wait I think it will be equally as good.

The Community Woodlands Association would like to thank you for providing a wonderfully energetic, fun-filled workshop for our 2012 conference in Newtown St Boswells.  Delegates thoroughly enjoyed the experience and the feedback was brilliant. You more than exceeded our expectations; successfully entertaining and educating adults, children and cynical foresters! We look forward to working with you again, and wish you all the best for the future.

I know that our chairman, Stewart Campbell, has already expressed appreciation to you and to the Walking Theatre for the success of the performance of A Midsummer-Night’s Dream in Duchess Wood last Sunday. However, I’d like to add my thanks as well. Despite the weather, it was thoroughly enjoyed by all and the imaginative in the way it was organised was impressive. The actors were also very clever at interacting with both children and adults. Many thanks to all concerned.

Just returned from another fab weekend at The Argyll Hotel in Dunoon, last visit was great – Haunted House – but this one was absolutely manic “Fawlty Towers Tribute” what can I say every cast member terrific, and a very gifted Chris performed a truly great performance as Manuel, Sadie bravo on SYBIL! and of course BASIL was utterly believable. Thank you for a fab time and look forward to seeing you again soon.

Went last night to see TWTC’s version of ‘A Midsummer’s Night Dream’ at Arduine Gardens. Fortunately the rain held off and only piddled and widdled and drizzled between showers. WHAT A GREAT NIGHT! An anticipatory crowd was met by a female Bottom, played with just a hint of one of Catherine Tate’s caricatures, only much nicer. She proceeded to browbeat and brutalise everyone into the right frame of mind, great fun. A deliciously camp Puck, flitted in and out of the under growth, treading iambic pentameter underfoot as he did so. The willing band of mortals trailed about the gardens in the deepening gloom led by Bottom or Puck depending on the plot device. Oberon, splendidly languid and world weary, but peevish at not getting his way, loomed out of the darkness to great effect, summoning Puck to plot his revenge on Titania. Ah! Titania, as Fairy Queens go, last nights was everything any mortal and indeed Fairy Prince could possibly want. A hugely appreciative audience gave the brilliant cast a ‘standing ovation’ at the end. Shakespeare would not have been turning in his grave; he would have been capering on top with delight.

Hi Sadie, we would just like to say a huge thanks for the fantastic weekend we had at the Argyll Hotel this week. Yourself and your talented team made the whole thing extra special and totally exceeded my expectations. This was our first time and wont be the last. The interaction of the evening gave everyone at the table lots to talk and laugh about and we all got on superbly well because of this. We have all decided to get together again next season when you include the Vampire evening. Donna and I might manage to make it in Dec for the Spying tonight. Your actor who played Hector was hilarious and done a great job sending me up. All the very best to you all

Having never worked with actors before I didn’t know what to expect.  I?was incredibly impressed in the first place when I received the draft?play text through the post.  I couldn’t believe that someone could take?the pile of information about a place and turn it into something so?creative, engaging and fun.  When it came to holding the walks I was?blown away by the professionalism, enthusiasm, energy, commitment and?quality of the work that the Walking Theatre Company delivered.  As a?professional, I would say that they delivered a fantatstic event that?breathed life into a special place and it gave the public what they?wanted.    On a personal note, I was very proud to have been involved in?this event.  I was also very moved to see moments in time and characters?from the past that belong to this special place brought to life before?my eyes.  Wilsontown Ironworks means a lot to me personally and I am?grateful to the WTC for what they have created.

We’ve been to a few Walking Theatre productions now and, quite simply, they rock.  Our kids are transfixed for months afterwards and tonight the adults are glowing after an evening with Lady Macbeth.  What a truly wonderful investment.  The forest comes alive – even those of us who love it anyway, are drawn in further.  Not only are the WTC superb entertainers, their eagerness and enthusiasm to socialise with the group (whatever age) afterwards, never ceases to amaze me and inarguably adds to their impact.  Please lets have lots more from Sadie and Co …

“The Walking Theatre Company deliver every time and on every front! Sadie Dixon-Spain wrote and directed a wonderful play for us in The Hidden Jewel for our Year of Homecoming event, and we are all still buzzing from the excitement of seeing the story come alive in the spectacular landscape of Dunollie in Oban.  To have superb professional theatre in such a setting was a joy and a privelage – and all of it a genuine Argyll product! As soon as we are able, we will be bringing them back for more.”

I’m writing to say thanks for the wonderful theater production at Dunollie during the Homecoming events in July  It was one of the high points of our trip to Scotland.  My wife and I are theater-goers and enjoy everything from Broadway, to summer stock, to college and community theater.  Although we aren’t professional, or avocational, critics, we believe that what Duke Ellington said about music applies equally to the stage:  there are two kinds of performances – good and bad.  Yours was the good kind.  Bravo

“Just a quick note to say how much we all enjoyed the performance last night. It was absolutely stunning and a completely new experience  altogether.

Just a quick note again to say thank you so much for a truly wonderful and very memorable evening on Saturday!

Yourself and your colleagues were fantastic in character and all of the girls were raving about the evening after you all left! We all had an absolutely wonderful time and I am sure that some of them will be in contact in the future when arranging their hen weekends! I will need to get married again so that I can have another one!!! ;)

May I take this opportunity to give my heartfelt recommendation to any other hen weekend organizers who wish to have a hilarious and interactive evening that creates absolutely unforgettable memories for both the hen and those lucky enough to take part!

—————————————————————————————————————————–

‘The Walking Theatre Company’s unique style of theatre provides a refreshing and educational experience to many of Scotland’s historical episodes. The atmosphere generated using outdoor locations as backdrops for each story combined with the excellent acting skills, only adds to the delight of the show bringing the audience closer to the story than you might imagine.

If you haven’t seen WTC at work then do so – a feast of surprises awaits!”

Steven Carmichael?First Minister Events?Scottish Executive
—————————————————————————————————————————–

Your Company’s spirited performance in front of First Minister Alex Salmond and other high profile political figures (in a dripping marquee) was the highlight of the day. It was, by turns, gripping, ghoulish, wise and witty-yet highly informative. Despite the mud squelching and clashing music from the main arena tannoy, you could have heard a pin drop, as we swiftly were entranced by a slice of compelling Scottish history. Even the politicians held their tongues for once-albeit only briefly!

Your Company’s performance at Loch Lomond and The Trossachs National Park’s evening at Holyrood immediately engaged the audience in a vibrant, interactive event that brought to life and included them in a slice of Argyll’s history. It was exciting, atmospheric, dramatic, funny, gory in places and very very entertaining ! Thank you so much for adding a special and distinctive flavour to the evening!

I experienced this play as part of the Lamont Clan gathering. It came as a surprise to all as we were gathered into a room but not knowing why. The play was the highlight of the evening, partly as it was a great form of entertainment and to the performers strong portrayal of the characters. I thought it a powerful presentation and wish it could be presented to all Campbells.
