Actor Iain treadsthe boards
A Chapelhall dad is this week taking centre stage in a musical production of Dirty Rotten Scoundrels.
Clinical psychologist Iain Campbell is heading a cast of more 20 performers from the Minerva Club, who are staging the comedy of roguish swindlers on the French Riviera, performing at Eastwood Park theatre in Giffnock until Saturday.
Iain’s amateur dramatics history has spanned 13 years, and as president of Airdrie and Coatbridge Amateur Operatic Society, he recently starred in Rock of Ages.
The 40-year-old said: “The part of Lawrence Jamieson was a big draw – he’s a real character with lots of comedy.
“I absolutely love the film, to the extent that I could quote parts of it, so I was really interested when this show came up with Minerva. It all just came together, and I’m really enjoying it.”
Based on the 1988 film, it follows Iain’s character, whose reputation as Europe’s best conman is threatened by younger debonair Freddy, and who battle for affections of heiress Christine Colgate.
