These are challenging times and the principal concern for the RSS must be for the well-being and safekeeping of everyone.

 

 Our thoughts are very much with those who have been directly affected by the pandemic – whether themselves or members of their families.

 

Following the recent limited relaxation of Covid-19 restrictions on professional and non-professional theatre productions the RSS intends to proceed with its December production of Whisky Galore at the Mary Wallace Theatre  subject to complying with all social distancing regulations and the provisions relating to Covid-19 secure premises.

 

Whilst our outdoor production of The Importance Of Being Earnest was regrettably cancelled this year due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the RSS was able to maintain its unbroken record (save for World War II) of giving an annual outdoor performance as we were delighted to be invited by English Heritage to perform a selection of scenes from Shakespeare at Marble Hill on Sunday September 20 at 2pm – see photos here.

 

In addition, we are continuing with our programme of fortnightly online events during September and October – details of which are posted on our What’s On page.

 

We very much look forward to being able to welcome our audiences back to the Mary Wallace Theatre.

 

In the meantime, we wish you all safety and good health.
