Alan Cochrane 19/03/1931 – 07/10/2012

There's Alan dancing at the back, in the middle.

I was much saddened to hear of the passing of Alan Cochrane, a larger than life character much loved by all who knew him. He was an award winning scots playwright, some of his plays include The Deils awa, The Campbells are comin’ and Ne’er the Twain which was recently performed by Edinburgh Peoples Theatre … Continue reading

The Smycms, Fifty Years.

Principal Smycms 91-92

Well!, Who would have thought The Smycms will soon be celebrating Fifty years of Musical Theatre, from humble beginnings in 1963 with Swingalong performed on a makeshift stage in the church hall of St Michael’s Church, Slateford Road, Edinburgh to the more grander surroundings of Morningside, Edinburgh and the Church Hill Theatre.

The Smycms, what next?

Sitting Bull offers Wild Bill Hickock heap big wampum for his snazzy jacket.

We are looking for your views as to what The Smycms should do next, please vote below as to what you see as the future for the company. It would seem too late to put on a Show in April 2012, maybe a concert might be a better idea using the show week in April … Continue reading

This May Be our Last Song Together.

The Finale of Guys and Dolls, lets hope its not the Finale of The Smycms.

As you are no doubt aware The Smycms have been trying to stage Seven Brides for Seven Brothers. Sadly for Smycms insufficient people were prepared to audition for the show and it is therefore not possible to continue with this production. Those people who did attend the auditions last Monday evening are extremely keen to … Continue reading

Seven Brides For Seven Brothers

Wots gone wrong with The Smycms. For Gawds sake get me to the bar.

Rehearsal Update

When you need a Guy but there's none to be had, you can guess that we'll dress a dame as a lad. OH MY GAD!!

We have had to suspend rehearsals for Seven Brides For Seven Brothers until January 2012 when we will be in a better position (we hope) to finalise the Rehearsal Schedule. There does seem to have been a bit of confusion recently regarding rehearsals being on or off, sorry for this, but part of the problem is that … Continue reading
