In brief, East Lothian Council Instrumental Music Service and Lammermuir Festival are looking for singers and actors to join their new community musical, Catriona and the Dragon (which includes the Anthem they performed last year), to perform alongside three of Scotland’s top professional singers, a huge orchestra of professional players and musicians from East Lothian Instrumental Music Service , under conductor Sian Edwards, director Laura Attridge and chorus director Moira Morrison.
Queen Catriona is the reluctant ruler of the Kingdom of Beagland, terrorised by a fearsome dragon who lives beyond the Bridge to Nowhere. Will Catriona find the courage to go over the Bridge to confront her worse fears and to fight the dragon? Can she persuade her people to change their ways?
How to get involved?
