High Society
26th May to 14th October
High Society
Pitlochry Festival Theatre
Music & Lyrics by Cole Porter
Book by Arthur Kopit
For the socialites of New England, it will be the Wedding of the Year: seven hundred guests, magnums of Veuve Clicquot and the beautiful, sophisticated Tracy Lord as the bride-to-be. And the groom?
According to the invitations, that honour goes to self-made man, George Kittredge. And even if George is, well, not quite from the top drawer - and a little dull - his upright character perfectly matches Tracy’s reputation as a paragon of virtue.  
But then on the eve of the nuptials, Mike Connor, a down-at-heel reporter from one of New York’s scandal sheets, turns up to cover the wedding. And this rugged ‘man of the people’ is immediately smitten with the divine Miss Lord... 
Even worse, Tracy’s first husband, the charming playboy, C. K. Dexter Haven, also drops in unannounced. Their marriage may have ended tempestuously, but Dexter is still dangerously attractive...
Add an estranged father, a confused mother, a meddling younger sister, an amorous uncle, a lovesick photographer, a not-so-hushed-up family scandal, mix well - and you have the makings of a very potent cocktail indeed..!
After our smash-hit production of Kiss Me, Kate in 2010, PFT returns to the genius of Cole Porter with a large cast, a fabulous swing band and some great songs (including True Love, Let’s Misbehave, Well, Did You Evah! and Who Wants To Be A Millionaire?) for the Scottish première of this witty, sparkling, high energy musical!

Sunday 28th May 2017: 10.30 – 4.30
The Scottish Crannog Centre, Kenmore, Loch Tay, Perthshire PH15 2HY
Artefact of the month - basket fragment
Ancient crafts and technologies are showcased at this extraordinary day featuring bronze-casting, basketry and many of the amazing skills learned and implemented by our ancient ancestors. Hands-on, enlightening and exciting – let our experts guide you through the Iron Age and all that makes it so special. 

All day time events include museum exhibits, talks around a log-fire in the Crannog roundhouse, demonstrations and hands-on experience of ancient crafts and technologies.
Technology is perhaps thought of as a modern term but 2,500 years ago people living on Loch Tay were way ahead of the game in terms of innovation and technological know-how.  Underwater discoveries have proven that the loch-dwellers were proficient at all sorts of skills we would think of as being ‘modern’ achievements.  This exceptional event showcases some of their technological expertise and development.  
Our second artefact for May is a delicate fragment of basketry, considered to be decorative as well as functional - perhaps part of a quiver for arrows? T:  01887 830583
