Light Opera’s lat­est will make you want to Shout!

Rutherglen Reformer - - The Tickets - Ian Bunt­ing

Multi-skilled Mon­k­lands Light Opera mem­bers will trans­port au­di­ences back to the swing­ing six­ties for their next all-singing, all-danc­ing pro­duc­tion.

Mod mu­si­cal ‘Shout!’ sees the tal­ented troupe pay trib­ute to the decade of love beads and lava lamps by don­ning their finest go-go boots, miniskirts and tie dye t-shirts for three spec­tac­u­lar per­for­mances.

A spokesper­son for the group set the scene for what peo­ple can ex­pect from the show, telling the Ticket: “‘Shout!’ is set in Lon­don and fol­lows the lives of five women – The Red Girl, The Green Girl, The Blue Girl, The Yel­low Girl and The Or­ange Girl – who all face tough sit­u­a­tions.

“All five women send letters to Gwen­dolyn Holmes, who works for the mag­a­zine ‘Shout!’ in an ad­vice col­umn, and she gives them sup­port on how to best deal with things.

“The Yel­low Girl, the only Amer­i­can char­ac­ter in the show, trav­els all the way to Bri­tain in or­der to see Paul McCart­ney.

“The Or­ange Girl is a fully grown woman who is mar­ried and is start­ing to sus­pect her hus­band is cheat­ing on her.

“The Blue Girl is gor­geous and wealthy, and while she can go on and on about how per­fect her life is, she does face some ques­tions re­gard­ing her sex­u­al­ity.

“The Green Girl is a bit pro­mis­cu­ous in the show, al­ways hook­ing up with many men and throw­ing in­nu­en­dos around.

“Fi­nally, the Red Girl is the youngest and most hope­ful char­ac­ter; she is a bit hope­less in the be­gin­ning, stat­ing she isn’t good­look­ing like other girls, un­til the man of her dreams comes along.”

‘Shout!’ fol­lows in the foot­steps of pre­vi­ous Mon­k­lands Light Opera pro­duc­tions in­clud­ing ‘Lit­tle Shop of Hor­rors’, ‘The Wed­ding Singer’, ‘Boo­gie Nights’ and ‘A Night at the Movies’ that have proved a real hit with au­di­ences across Air­drie and Coat­bridge.

The group spokesper­son added: “We are al­ways de­ter­mined to put on the best show pos­si­ble and all of our mem­bers have a won­der­ful time en­ter­tain­ing the crowds.

“Peo­ple of all ages are in­vited to come along and see ‘Shout!’ and en­joy a great night out.”

‘Shout!’ comes to Air­drie’s Flow­er­hill Par­ish Church on April 2830 at 7.30pm and tick­ets (£12/£9) are on sale now at 07801 577815.
