WELCOME TO FADS!
Fintry Amateur Dramatic Society
With around 40 enthusiastic adult members and a raft of talented children from Fintry and many of the surrounding villages (and Glasgow!), the Club is a great mix of ages and experience. Our audiences have grown to expect a high standard of performance, with attention to detail in set design, costumes, make-up, lighting and sound all contributing to the quality of our productions.
We aim to stage something in Fintry each spring and autumn and work to have an entry in the annual SCDA One-Act Play competition – plus a rip-roaring pantomime at the end of every year.
We’re always looking to welcome new members, so either come along to one of our social events or click the button below if you’d like to join us.

A podcast project!
Although the current coronavirus social distancing restrictions have put paid to rehearsing in person, one of our talented members has spent the last few months creating a radio comedy, 'Roaches Coaches' which we're putting out as the First Ever FADS Podcast.
The comedy is set in a small-town bus depot, in a magical time before COVID-19 was invented. The business is going through hard times and the hapless staff have to get the buses out despite vandalism, terrorism, extreme feminism and a lack of optimism. Owner/Manager Keith Roache does his best, but he’s always one step behind lazy Jimmy, hopeless Carol, desperate Mags, womaniser Kenny, naïve William and camp Laurence.
CALAMITY JANE POSTPONED
Due to the ongoing social distancing restrictions and threat from COVID-19, we have taken the decision to postpone Calamity Jane. We had hoped to reschedule it for March 2021, but that will now not be possible.
We are still hoping to be able to take to the stage later in 2021, but our priority is to ensure the absolute safety of our audience, cast and production team. Sign up to our blog to be notified of future dates.
