Emotions were running high last night as we closed The Rifles at Hamilton Town House. The 27-strong cast of high school pupils gave 5 performances of the new musical play by Martin Travers with original music by Claire McKenzie. I was privileged to co-direct the piece alongside Guy Hollands.
The Rifles was produced by South Lanarkshire Leisure and Culture in association with Citizens Theatre.
Below are a few photos by Alex Brady and some audience comments from social media.
Powerful stories of the Cameronians in #TheRifles – beautifully staged; stirring music. Congrats to schools’ cast+choir.
