A MORAY AUDICENCE is set for an fun time when the LADS take on Girls’ Night – in this case the comedy by Louise Roche that has received accolades wherever it has been performed.

The amateur drama group have gone for laughs again on the back of their previous memorable productions that included Calendar Girls and ‘Allo ‘Allo.

Drawing members from throughout Moray’s communities, LADS is shaping up to celebrate 50 years in 2017. For ‘Girls’ Night’ the stage at the Holy Trinity Hall in Elgin will be reconstructed into a nightclub by Ian Duncan under the watchful eyes of his wife Beryl – who is also producer of the play.

A spokeswoman for LADS said: “It’s a big night out and all the girls are going where the drinks are flowing and the music is fab, and it is a case of boogie nights and fun all the way for the friends who are having a great time, and reflecting on events of 20 years ago.

“Taking to the stage are Anita (Ellen Stewart), Lisa (Estelle Buchanan), Carol (Ann Todd) and her sister Kate (Claire Nagle), whose lives are intertwined and secrets revealed as they get together to celebrate and reflect on the past – ahead of the wedding of their charge, Candi-Rose.”

The performance will be narrated by Sharon, played by Tanya McLaren. Sharon is not able to be on the ‘Girls’ Night’ but just popped down form that big nightclub in the sky on her super-charged moped to see her friends as they gathered for her daughter’s wedding.

Tanya said: “It’s a bit bumpy along the way as the personalities and life stories of the individual cast member’s personalities develop, and the secrets of the past are revealed, with touching reflections on life and surprising and hilarious consequences.

“On the surface Girls’ Night is just cocktails and karaoke, but it touches on a number of sensitive women’s issues, and is bound to pull on the heart-strings of the audience.”

Tickets for the play – being performed on February 4, 5 and 6 at 7.30pm, cost £10 – that includes a complimentary glass of wine with cheese and nibbles. Tickets are available by calling 079080 13417 or email

Groups are welcome to enjoy a fun night where they can even join in the karaoke numbers!

Note that the play is not suitable for children.
