Pinch! Punch! First of the Month!

Happy July, TWTC fans! What a beautiful sunny Wednesday to kickstart a new month! Rehearsals are in full swing at TWTC HQ this week, as our team prepare for their weekend adventures to the Isle of Raasay, and to the beautiful village of Glenelg!


Catch TWTC perform on the Isle of Raasay on Friday 3rd of July at 14:00hrs, for a spot of ‘Treasure Island’, and then there is set to be a ‘Conference of the Faeries’ (Midsummer Nights Dream) on Saturday 4th of July @ 12:30hrs at Glenelg Village Hall! Two fantastic shows in two brand new venues! We are EXCITED! Now, back to rehearsing!

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!

The White Rabbit’s Treasure Hunt at Loch Lomond Shores

The sun was shining in Loch Lomond Shores yesterday, 21st July, which gave The Walking Theatre Company a perfect Summer backdrop for our outdoor theatre adventure, ‘The White Rabbit’s Treasure Hunt’!

Our furry friend, The White Rabbit, took us on a fun-filled, madcap walking tour through the beautiful trails at Loch Lomond, where we bumped into a few familiar faces along the way!


The Hatter appeared as we strolled through the woodlands – what a very strange man! Our Door Mice (Mouses, mooses, meeces, mices?) friends who joined us on the adventure kept an eye on the crazy man, making sure he didn’t do anything too silly!

DSC_0947The Red Queen joined her loyal subjects at the Lochside, and was a little sneezy, even though there were no children around…promise! Only Door Mice! Good thing the White Rabbit was on hand to help Her Majesty!

Big thanks to the lovely folk at Loch Lomond Shores who invited us along to spread a little Summer fun in the form of outdoor theatre on the bonnie, bonnie banks! We’ll be back on the 1st and 3rd of August, with another two performances – Whisky Galorious and the Celtic Tree Walk! Tickets still available, get yours before they run out!

A ‘Wiz Around’…Glendaruel!

On Saturday, 13th of July, The Walking Theatre Company was thrilled to be a part of the Colintraive and Glendaruel Development Trust’s ‘Forest Celebration Day’ – a fun-filled day of events for the community and visitors to get involved in, to celebrate the Trust’s recent purchase of Stronafian Forest for the community!

Munchkins, well-beheaved grown-ups, and even a few canine creatures, joined Dorothy on a ‘Wiz Around Oz’, where we travelled through the forest, meeting an array of characters along the way! The Lion was Cowardly, the Scarecrow didn’t know which way to go, and the Great Wiz saved us from the Wicked Witch!

The sun shone brightly on our journey through Glendaruel, and Dorothy, fit with her sparkly red welly boots (well, she was in Scotland!) made sure everyone was home in time for tea!

Thank you to the Colintraive and Glendaruel Development Trust for inviting us along to help celebrate with the community!
