Happy Easter Monday TWTC fans! Today, we are going for a ‘Wiz Around Oz’ in Ardentinny, as part of Forestry Commission Scotland Cowal’s Easter Eggstravaganza fun day at the Ardentinny Picnic Site!

Join Dorothy on her magical adventure to meet the Great Wiz…who I have heard has lost his marbles!


All aboard! The Captain’s calling!

To celebrate National Parks Week 2013, 29th July – 4th August, the lovely Loch Lomond Shores invited TWTC to perform not one, but two of if our original works, Whisky Galorious and The Celtic Tree Walk – both written by our fabulous Artistic Director and in-house playwright, Sadie Dixon-Spain!

The Highland smugglers were on the run from the excise men on the 1st of August as we went on an intrepid adventure through the historical world of Scotland’s whisky!

There was word on the water that smugglers were hiding at Loch Lomond Shores and the ‘Revenue’ men were on their way to stamp out illegal stills and stop those sneaky Highlanders from making their infernal home brew ‘uisge beatha’, whisky, without duty paid on it is against the law!

On the 3rd of August, Puck the Eco Sprite could be found in search for the ‘Keeper of the Trees’ to come along and help save the woodlands surrounding the bonnie, bonnie banks!

TWTC were thrilled to be a part of National Parks Week, and help celebrate the natural beauty of Loch Lomond Shores! We’ll be back for more Plays in the Park soon…watch this space!!
