20170617 – Scottish Youth Festival Final

Scottish Youth Festival Final

Regulars readers will recall that my partner, Susan is heavily involved in the Am-Drama scene in Scotland.  She holds the Posts of

  1. Edinburgh District Secretary
  2. Eastern Divisional Secretary
  3. Member of the SCDA Scene Magazine Committee
  4. Member of the Festivals Committee

SCDA – Scottish Community Drama Association more commonly called, SCDA or Scottish Community Drama hold an annual Youth Drama Festival (1-Act Plays)  and an Open Festival.  In both festivals clubs enter at district level and winners go onto Divisional level.  Winners from Divisional finals go to the Scottish final. Youth teams festival finishes with the Scottish Final.

My involvement is minimal – I take pictures and find the challenge in getting a production shot which shows the actors portrayal of character and not a posed shot and taking into account the stage lighting.

This year the Scottish Youth Final was held at Birnam Arts Centre in Dunkeld and organised by SCDA Northern Division on 17th June 2017.
