Per­former rel­ishes role at brew­ery show

Rutherglen Reformer - - News - Will Hen­shaw

A Ruther­glen man is set to take to the stage in a mu­si­cal ex­trav­a­ganza with one of Glas­gow’s most suc­cess­ful am­a­teur theatre com­pa­nies.

Tal­ented Martin McHendry, orig­i­nally from Farme Cross, will fea­ture in Glas­gow Mu­sic Theatre’s pro­duc­tion of ‘Make it a Tre­ble!’, which will come to the Dry­gate Brew­ery in Glas­gow this week­end.

The show will fea­ture a range of num­bers from Broad­way mu­si­cals past and present, from Sin­gin’ in the Rain to the Lion King to the Wed­ding Singer.

And for­mer Stonelaw High pupil Martin will fea­ture in no less than six num­bers dur­ing the show, which will run for two nights.

No stranger to the stage, Martin has pre­vi­ously fea­tured in GMT pro­duc­tions of West Side Story and How to Suc­ceed in Busi­ness With­out Re­ally try­ing.

The 29-year-old is rel­ish­ing the op­por­tu­nity of per­form­ing in front of a live au­di­ence once again: “Be­ing on stage, in front of a big au­di­ence. There’s noth­ing like it at all.

“Re­hearsals have been in­tense! On Sun­day we are do­ing the first run, eight hours in a wee stu­dio to­gether.”

How­ever there was no cast­ing in­volved for this show. It’s made up of GMT per­form­ers who have been in prior pro­duc­tions and was open to any­one who had been on stage for the com­pany.

And that’s what makes it a show not to be missed, ac­cord­ing to for­mer Burgh Pri­mary pupil Martin.

“It’s just friends cel­e­brat­ing what brought them to­gether, and giv­ing the public the best per­form­ers they’ll see out­side of a West End stage,” he said.

“It’s packed with the most tal­ented peo­ple in Scot­land, and you’ll see stars of to­mor­row on that stage, do­ing their damn­d­est to blow you away.”

Make it a Tre­ble! will come to the Dry­gate Brew­ery on Satur­day, Au­gust 8, and Sun­day, Au­gust 9. Doors open at 7pm.
