A former Ellon Academy pupil is venturing to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival this year with a team of her fellow students.

Kirsty Fraser is heading into her final year studying Theatre/Film and Television Studies at the University of Glasgow.

But she has also spent this past year working as Vice-President for the Student Theatre at Glasgow (STAG). Her main responsibility in this role is to produce a show for the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.

Having organised a three-day competition in February to choose the winning play, Kirsty and her team are now just two weeks away from their opening show.

Speaking to the Times, Kirsty said: “This year marks STAG’s 10th anniversary at the Fringe so there is a lot of pressure and expectation for it to be their biggest and best year yet.”

“GOD. Ltd. is a theatrical comedy about what happens on God’s day off when the angels are left in charge.

“This original play is current, far from heavenly and a recipe for disaster!”

Kirsty’s passion for theatre was sparked during her time at Ellon Academy, so much so that she set up the Arts Awards, which recognises dedication and talent to the Arts at the school.

She would love to see some local faces in the audience during the show which runs from August 4 to 19.

Tickets can be purchased at tickets.edfringe.com.
