Shang-a-Lang – 2-for-1 ticket offer!

19 09 2014

Friday 19 September
7.30pm

Rapture Theatre
written by Catherine Johnson directed by Michael Emans

Fresh from its sell-out 2013 tour, Shang A Lang returns to venues across Scotland, showcasing its wickedly funny script, hilariously talented cast and fantastic soundtrack. Written by Catherine Johnson (writer of the smash hit Mamma Mia) and directed by Rapture’s Artistic Director Michael Emans this production is an all-round great night out experience.

Take a step back in time to the days of the Bay City Rollers, with loud fashions and laugh-out-loud adult humour.

Shang-a-Lang follows three flighty, forty-something, Scottish women on their way to a 70s revival weekend in Butlins, where they eagerly await to see their heroes, the Rollers, perform once again. They were all Rollerettes back in the day and decide it is time to recapture their youth, chase their unfulfilled dreams and have a ball while they do it.

Lauren tries to stay sober, Jackie tries to stay married and Pauline continues to search for her_DSC3927 Woody.

Shang-a-Lang is the perfect girls’ night out laced with shocking laughs, warm tears and a fabulous
soundtrack – a cross between a Scottish Shirley Valentine and Shameless.

Please note: Shang a Lang is a dramatic play, not a musical. Also as part of the production’s
comedic style, the show contains very strong language, scenes of a sexual nature and nudity.

This Wednesday– Six Black Candles

17 05 2011

All the ingredients needed for an astonishingly entertaining night at the theatre: Six Black Candles, one affronted Maw, two gallons of vodka, one crazy old Irish Granny, a pile of burning boxer shorts, barrels of bickering, a hitman, a pentangle and a frozen head in the fridge.

(Oh, and maybe one adulterous husband and an unsuspecting Catholic Priest.)

The praise for Goldfish Theatre’s astounding production of Des Dillon’s Six Black Candles just keeps on coming, as critics and audiences alike are won over by this riotous black comedy, straight from the pen of one of Scotland’s most popular writers.

But don’t just take our word for it!

Theatre South present: The Wedding Singer

14 03 2011

Following their heart-wrenching production of Broadway classic Rent last season, Glasgow’s very own Theatre South Productions return to EPT tomorrow evening with another dazzling production to add to their repertoire, The Wedding Singer.

It’s 1985 and rock-star wannabe Robbie Heart, who still lives in his grandmother’s basement, is New Jersey’s favourite wedding singer. He’s the life of the party until his fiancé, Linda, leaves him at the altar. Shot through the heart, Robbie makes every wedding as disastrous as his own. When he meets an Julia, an admiring young waitress, Robbie falls madly in love. Only trouble is Julia is about to be married, and unless Robbie can pull off the performance of a decade, the girl of his dreams will be gone forever.

With a score that pays loving homage to the pop songs of the 1980s, The Wedding Singer takes us back to a time when hair was big, greed was good, collars were up, and a wedding singer might be the coolest person in the room.

To get you in the mood, check out this clip from The 1998 film version, starring Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore:

Tuesday  15– Saturday 19 March | 7.30pm +  2.30pm Saturday matinee
