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’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.

The team will also be performing their competition entry in Fintry between 17th and 20th April, in a double-bill with the 'The Book Club Of Little Witterington (After The Fete)', by Joan Greening.
In this light comedy, the ladies of the village book club have gathered to discuss Nevil Shute’s ‘On The Beach’. However, most of them seem far more interested in gossiping about events at the recent village fete – in particular, a certain book club member’s liaison with the local vicar…
