THE PERFORMANCE RESUMES

18-25th June 2021

JOIN IN THIS PRODUCTION 

St Magnus International Festival is currently planning a ‘live’ and virtual production of George Mackay Brown’s play The Storm Watchers as part of the 2021 programme next June.   

An intense piece of theatre from the early 1970s, the play has a cast of seven, all women, and the Festival is looking for local performers to rehearse and create this version in two casts.    

HOW TO AUDITION 

As the restrictions of Covid-19 continue, the Festival will be asking anyone wishing to audition to provide a short, self-recorded video monologue, of up to 5 minutes in length, taken from any playscript.  

The audition can be recorded as video on computer, tablet or phone and sent to the Festival’s Director Alasdair Nicolson.  The video should be sent to alasdair.nicolson@stmagnusfestival.com by Monday 14th December

Next year will mark 100 years from this world-renowned Orcadian poet’s birth and form part of a celebration of his work more broadly within the Festival.   The play is described as “A play for voices” and this new production will be presented in memory of Kristin Linklater, another world-renowned figure whose life and work revolved around the voice.

 

 

                

We are currently all going through the most extraordinary times and sadly there was no Festival this year.   However we marked the Festival with some Peedie Postcards and some musical performances from performers and well wishers from near and far.  This year’s programme was full of a wonderful array of performers and we will be working hard to bring the performances back in 2021 for our delayed 44th Festival.   We hope that everyone finds ways through this period and we all emerge on the other side hungry for live performance and summer, festival nights.  Please take care of yourselves and the ones you love and we look forward to seeing you next year.
