East Kilbride Hobby Clubs
The EKO Players Drama Club
The EKO Players has been in existence for 41 years and is still going strong today. Every season there are dozens of opportunities for you to become involved with every aspect of theatre including; directing, acting, backstage, publicity, front-of-house, lighting, sound, prompt, properties, set design and building, social events, stage management, wardrobe and much more.
The other benefit of being a part of the EKO Players is the social side. We regularly hold nights out: family fun days, Christmas party nights, theatre & cinema trips, and our fund raising events! We meet in the village on a Monday and Wednesday evening. To find out more please contact our Secretary on email@example.com.
