Perth Theatre has lined up a squad of well-known faces to take part in live online Team Talk discussions as part of its Saintees on Stage project.
Personalities including sports journalists Gordon Bannerman, Stuart Cosgrove and Eric Nicolson, actor Colin McCredie and his brother; professional photographer Alan McCredie, poet Jim Mackintosh, and curling star Eve Muirhead will be sharing their special Saints memories with fans in the Zoom chats in April and May.
With the first batch of tickets being snapped up in less than 24 hours, Perth Theatre has announced that it will be releasing more tickets to the free events at 10am on Wednesday 31 March. Tickets are limited to one per person and include a pie pack containing a Murrays pie, an iced bun and a Bovril cube, delivered to certain local postcodes by Perth Radio Taxis.
Commenting on his participation in the discussions, actor, and lifelong Saints fan, Colin McCredie said:
“As an actor brought up in Perth supporting St Johnstone this is a dream project to be involved with. It will be great sharing memories with the fans of all the high and lows of being a Saintee!”
Saintees on Stage is an exciting collaboration between St. Johnstone FC and Perth Theatre who are teaming up to create a new show about the club and the role it plays in the city.
Supporters will be at the heart of the story, so fans are being asked to share their experiences, memories and stories of the club.
From Ando’s opening goal to Macca’s clincher at Celtic Park – Perth Theatre wants to know what it was it like to be part of a crowd of die-hard fans when Saints won the Scottish Cup? Or how did it feel not to be part of a crowd when Rooney sealed the deal in 2021? Fans can tell stories from long ago or last season, or contribute what St. Johnstone means to them personally – is it a favourite manager, player, tea lady or other connection?
The stories, which should be true and no longer than 300 words or 3 minutes in length, can be written down or sent as a voice recording to 07813 396 517, uploaded to https://bit.ly/saintfc or emailed to email@example.com
To book a free ticket to one of the Team Talk events, visit the Saintees on Stage page.
Local groups will be able to get involved in a range of specifically designed activities on the theme of football memories as the project unfolds.
Perth Theatre would also like to hear from any local businesses who may be interested in supporting the project by sponsorship or other means, and invites anyone who would like to explore this option to contact the Development Team at firstname.lastname@example.org.
