On Tour At The Edinburgh Fringe Festival
One of the highlights of the year is being able to take our shows up to the international Edinburgh Fringe Festival that runs throughout August. It's a fantastic experience for actors as it lets you showcase your talent to an international audience whilst allowing you to experience some of the incredible shows that are brought up there at discount prices.
It's Theatre Group tradition to take one or more shows up there for a run of 2-3 weeks, either performing daily or alternating in the same slot. Auditions for these usually take place just after January exams, and help is always needed in tour production and fundraising, so keep checking your emails for ways to get involved!
Once upon a time, Theatre Group toured under the name of Rattlesnake Theatre Company ... yeah. These days we use SUSU Performing Arts' collective name, Gone Rogue Productions.
The Tours Officer
The Tours Officer is responsible for overseeing Theatre Group going to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival and anywhere else we might take shows on tour. They are the best person to talk to if you are interested in taking a show up to Edinburgh with Theatre Group.
Hmmm. We don't seem to have a tours officer at the moment. How odd.
