First up for the season will be a performance of a one-act play on June 9-11.

Jean Morrison, who has put in an appearance at a few local events as Widow Twankey, will be presenting her own play, The Waiting Room.

Jean, who has written scripts in the past for the club’s interpretation of popular pantomimes, is looking forward to staging her latest offering – a play based on events in a GP surgery.

“Needless to say chaos ensues in the waiting room, but I won’t give anything more away,” she said.

“The evening will include a meet and greet and a visit from ‘Dr Jekyll’ who will attempt to answer any medical problems – embarrassing or otherwise.

“We are just delighted after two years that we can reopen the doors of the theatre and perform before live audiences.”

Club chairwoman Karen Kemp said: “The theatre has had a makeover during lockdown with the tea bar area being painted and now looking rejuvenated.

“It’s so exciting to be back not just with our own production but also hosting some of the Nairn Book and Arts Festival events in September.”

She added: “The club is always looking for new members, you don’t have to want to be on stage.

“We would love a seamstress, people interested in learning about lighting, stage management or people with DIY skills to help design and build sets.

“There is so much more to The Little Theatre and Nairn Drama Club.”
