Fraserburgh Junior Arts Society’s Summer Show this year ‘Memories are made of this’ is an extra special production as it is a public thank you from FJAS to Fraserburgh 4th Company Boys Brigade for all the support they have provided FJAS over the past 58 years.

Both FJAS and Fraserburgh 4th Company Boys Brigade began in the early 1950s - the 4th company starting in August 1952 and six months later in March 1953 FJAS was launched.

In those formative years of FJAS a lot of their members were also in the 4th Company Boys Brigade and the 4th Company BBs gave the FJAS a great deal of support from perfoming, light and sound production to creating scenery, they threw themselves into the new venture.

Many of the original members of FJAS and the 4th Company, like Henry Duthie, still take a keen interest today, while throughout the years other members have been involved in both organisations like Gavin Noble and junior members like James Adams are carrying on the tradition.

The show itself promises something for everyone, with a variety of performances, from a potted panto written by Margaret Moffat and perfomed by today’s 4th Company BBs, to 6.10 Dance Academy demonstrating their superb abilities in what is sure to be a stunning performance, as well as a section of 1950s material and another of purely Scottish material.

Bill Paterson will, in his own entertaining style, be compere for the evening, so there will certainly be some fantastic humour and hearty laughter. The production will run three days, from Monday May 30 until Wednesday June 1 and start at 7.30 pm.

Tickets are sure to sell like hot potatoes and go on sale at the Dalrymple Hall on May 14 priced at £7 for balcony seats and £5 for stalls.

Funds raised from the production will be donated to the 4th Company Boys Brigade after the show closes to thank them in a very practical way for their support throughout the years.

Producers for this year’s Summer Show are Margaret Adams and Margaret Moffat, with choreography courtesy of Angela Ellis and musical score by Lynne McPherson
