Whale Music

At the Citz, we run Nightschool drama classes for adults. This has grown over the last few years and now offers 4 classes catering for everyone from the absolute beginners to experienced performers.

As a graduate of 3 levels, I can honestly say it was one of the most satisfying and enjoyable things I've ever done.

Quite often at the end of a long day, I'd find myself not really in the mood for an evening class; but without fail, the spirit of fun and enthusiasm exuded by the course leaders infected us all, and we left with a huge grin and a real sense of achievement.

I think one of my favourite things about the classes was the interaction of all ages and abilities. There is a very supportive atmosphere that allows each participant to push themselves within their own limits without feeling too pressured.

There have been quite a few successful graduates of Nightschool over the years, many of whom have gone on to perform in our community theatre productions and some who have gone on to drama school or turned professional! Emma Sullivan and Judith Hastie formed Loose Goose Theatre after working together in Donald Pirie's Level 3 class.


Their first production is Whale Music by Anthony Minghella, which will be at The Old Hairdressers on Renfield Lane from Wed 14 - Fri 16 September. Whale Music - which will be directed by another Nightschool graduate Scott Cadenhead - is Anthony Minghella's tender tale of female friendship and strength in the face of adversity.

The tickets are available from ticketweb or by calling 08444 77 1000. They're also available on the door. Good luck to all at Loose Goose!

Autumn 2011 Level 1 is now sold out, but we have a few places left in both Levels 2 and 3. Call 0141 429 0022 if you fancy trying your hand at acting, meeting some lovely people and most of all having a great laugh!
