MAOS - 'The Markinch Musical Society'

MAOS is a group of keen amateur actors, singers and helpers, based in
Markinch, Fife, Scotland, who produce a musical show in March of each year.

Markinch Town Hall  -  22nd to 26th March 2016

WHISKY GALORE - a musical! is based on the original novel by Compton Mackenzie and has been adapted for the stage by Shona McKee McNeil and Ian Hammond Brown.

It's 1943 and the curse of rationing has visited the remote Hebridean islands of Little Todday and Great Todday to the extent that the thirsty islanders have all but run out of uisge beatha - 'the water of life! ' - until a cargo ship runs aground with fifty thousand cases of whisky on board.

A message from our President.

I hope that you will find something interesting in these pages and if you live within travelling distance of Markinch, perhaps you would consider joining the company.

Contrary to popular belief you DO NOT have to be a singer to join our group. Perhaps you would be interested in participating in acting, dancing, make-up, painting, stage crew work, lighting, costumes or one of the many other jobs which keep our show 'on the road'. Being involved in any capacity,  producing a show to present to the public gives us a great deal of fun and satisfaction and is an excellent hobby throughout the winter months.

If you require further information please contact Valerie Thomson, by telephone on 01592 754537 or email
