Connor Going - Pitlochry


Connor Going is delighted to be joining the cast of Pitlochry’s Summer Ensemble, where he will be playing a variety of characters including Otter in Wind In The Willows.

Pitlochry Festival Theatre’s Artistic Director Elizabeth Newman said about the exciting Summer Ensemble:

We were thrilled to create the theatre’s first Winter Ensemble this year to celebrate our 70th birthday. Due to restrictions, most of their work was produced for audiences to experience digitally. We hope audiences have enjoyed this platinum celebration online and more of the Winter Ensemble’s work will be shared throughout the year. However, I am over the moon to be able to share news of our Summer Ensemble! An extraordinary group of actors will be coming together to create our 2021 70th Anniversary Summer season.

"It will be a Summer Season like no other: like nothing Pitlochry Festival Theatre audiences have ever seen before in Pitlochry. This summer will be an entirely outdoor rep season, in various locations across the Pitlochry campus. This twenty-two-strong acting Ensemble will be performing in Pitlochry for different lengths of time throughout the summer: some for a week, some for two and others for many months.

"Each actor will bring something utterly unique to the Season. For instance, Pitlochry Festival Theatre will produce Opera for the first time, so we are thrilled to welcome so much Opera talent to the Ensemble this year; as well as continue our tradition of making life-affirming, home-grown drama, and musicals. We are also particularly excited about our offer for family audiences this year, which many of the Ensemble will bring to life.
