The local Drama Club started in the early part of the 20th Century, around 1922. It vanished for a short period over the war
years and then reappeared in the 1950's. The Drama Club performed throughout the 1960's and into the early 70's.
The Drama Club re-formed in 1985 by enthusiastic parents & teenagers who had performed many shows & nativity plays at Edinvillie School. They started with one-act plays in the Hall but soon progressed to three-act productions on tour at up to six other venues in the surrounding district in March each year during which their fame became widespread.
The Club ran from 1985 with only a one year break until 2001. During this period of sixteen years 21 plays were performed, raising thousands of pounds for charities and Hall funds doing what they and others enjoyed. These plays were performed all over the North East of Scotland from Tomintoul to Buckie.
The club performed plays which were set mostly in Fife & written by Joe Corrie, T.M.Watson, Donald Maclaren & George S. Carruthers amongst others.
