Summer Holiday

Pitlochry Festival Theatre

During a wet Scottish summer, Pitlochry bus driver Don whisks his workmates away on a borrowed bus, in search of sunshine and fun in Athens! Read more …

Along the way, the mechanics pick up a stowaway, rescue stranded singing trio Do-Re-Mi and fall in love!

One of the most popular movies of the 60s, immortalised by Cliff Richard and The Shadows, make sure you jump on board and sing along with the happiest, hit-filled, feel-good musical of yoursummer holiday.

Look out for news about our Theatre Bus Tour! We will be sharing songs and stories in lots of communities, bringing joy and art to as many people as possible.

The critical consensus

Often rough around the edges, this production is strong on enthusiasm and exuberance.

While smaller than PFT’s usual musical fare, as a calling card for summer holidays to come, Newman and Occhipinti’s playful take on teenage dreams of leaving promises much for the future, whatever the weather.

****(*)Neil Cooper, Coffee-Table Notes, 03/06/2019

All the more enjoyable for its determinedly lo-fi approach.

****(*)Allan Radcliffe, 05/06/2019

Ultimately, however, the combination of an under-developed script and awkward design (not to mention crisis-ridden amplification) leaves this Summer Holiday looking somewhat lacklustre.

Mark Brown, Scottish Stage, 19/06/2019

The future looks bright for new AD Elizabeth Newman as this talented cast bring sunshine to the Highlands (even on a rainy day).
