Sometimes the best part of a musical is seeing a familiar or unremarkable setting created on stage and filled with singing and dancing, making life seem that little bit more lively. In the much adored “Kinky Boots” that setting is a shoe factory on the brink of closing...

It’s difficult to say the title of Cora Bissett and David Grieg’s musical without it being in the accent, the R rolling at the end, and truly this is a show with real pride in its location. Set in 2005, it focuses on 6 young women from Glasgow fighting the powers that...

Over the last week, I have been helping backstage with costume in my local school’s production of “Annie Get Your Gun”. A lot of hard work and enthusiasm has been put into this show by students (both on and off stage), staff, and out of school volunteers, and speaking...
