Florians Dramatic Society
We are an amateur dramatics club based in the City of Inverness - the "Capital of the Highlands" - in Scotland. Founded in 1944 for the purpose of entertaining the troops stationed in the town during WW2, we nowadays do about five productions a year. Our shows have ranged from comedy, to drama, to musicals, to panto, therefore our dynamic theatre can stage almost any type of production. We have our own wee theatre, converted from an old Nissen Hut, which was formerly a temporary library building, and then a community centre. Over the last few years we have installed new tiered seating and updated our sound and lighting departments in the production box. We also still have some ongoing work to the theatre, including painting, flooring, and ordering new flats for the stage. Our theatre has the capacity for 98 paying customers, up from the original 35-40 we managed to fit in when we first took over the building. We originally used "The Green Hut" as a store and rehearsal space and performed in Eden Court Theatre on tour. This became uneconomical, so we made a start towards turning this green hut into the luxurious theatre you can see today. Age range - Junior Florians 5 to 15 years old, Senior Florians 18 upwards.
