Vicki at the recent UHI sessions on self-esteem for women.

Vicki Armour, our wee gem who supports us in so many ways.  Vicky used to be in the drama club in Kinlochleven as a child, and as an adult she has found her way into doing our Fun Club for little ones getting into acting, singing and dancing.  Vicki is also a very able hand at crafts and has started to dabble in prop making.  Vicky lives with her “wee babs” in Kinlochleven, and has just taken to the stage after nearly a decade…playing…Sunflower a big, mouthie princess!  She currently plays Landlady in “Homebrew”.

Liam Baldwin.  Our go to man for off the wall script writing, jokes, intelligent cartoons and of course performing.  Liam has written many of the infamous Ballachulish and Kinlochleven pantomimes.  He is also the author of “Luke Warmwater and the Wardrobe of Destiny” (intrigued…just get in touch to find out more about his scripts).  Liam has been part of our developing radio comedy “Driech AM” Liam is a fixture of Ballachulish (via Leicester).  Did you know Liam is the brain and fingers behind Gosh! Wow! Comics?

Paul Hernaes Barnes, a lad from Glenfinnan, with Norwegian blood, now studies performance in Glasgow.  Paul is ex- Lochaber Youth Theatre, and one of only 8 Scots who was chosen to do Promote YT’s (now Youth Theatre Arts Scotland)’s RE:Location project in Norway.  Paul is also writing and directing short films.  It is a real joy to have someone who came through LYT with us for “Stigma”.

Kirsty as Joanne, in Stigma

Kirsty Hamilton has at last finished a lifetime of theatre training at Glasgow… She is a real go getter, setting up her own theatre company.  Kirsty, originally from Ballachulish was part of Lochaber Youth Theatre.  We were thrilled when we had the chance to work with Kirsty professionally in “Stigma”.

Robin Walker has been a great asset to us as our first “Bright Young Thing” guinea pig.  Doing two year’s work experience with us, while studying for a career in the arts, Robin has been adept at playing both creepy and funny roles, and has worked with lots of young folk, passing on his enthusiasm for Role Play Games and Drama.  Robin is now off to study at Queen Margaret’s University.  But we will see him soon.
