Good to have something where you can meet up with like-minded people, friends and family. A chance to refresh the soul without having to travel too far.

M Ross

What I have seen over the years has been of a high standard whatever the nature of the show on offer, keep it up!

J B

Thank you for bringing professional theatre of a high standard to North East communities.

It’s a different kind of experience in terms of the arts. Not performing but still being involved in a performance process is a good skill, plenty to learn and I love theatre so getting more people, especially those who wouldn’t normally go, to see a live piece of drama is really exciting.

I just wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed Whisky Galore in Dufftown this week. The performance was absolutely excellent; so entertaining. It seemed the production appealed to people of a wide range of ages and backgrounds. My group of 4 are in our 30s. There was such a jolly atmosphere. Thanks for a great evening. I hope there will be many more in Dufftown!
