Rutherglen Reformer - - News -

It has been a dream of mine since I was very young to have my very own show.

Last week, for the first time ever, I stood on stage in front of a packed au­di­to­rium and had the time of my life.

Thank you so much to the IN­CRED­I­BLE au­di­ence who came to my first ever very own one woman show!

What a fan­tas­tic time we all had - we laughed and cried, danced and sang to­gether.

I am ab­so­lutely de­lighted that ev­ery­one loved the show and gave me such in­cred­i­ble feed­back.

I’m re­ally ex­cited about bring­ing it to some Glasgow venues next year so I’ll be sure to keep all of my lovely Re­former read­ers up to date.

Thank you also to the Ghillie Dhu in Ed­in­burgh.

My good­ness what an ab­so­lutely stun­ning venue and such a won­der­ful and sup­port­ive staff team they have there.

This is the Ghillie Dhu’s first ever Ed­in­burgh Fringe and what an hon­our it was to be their very first act of the fes­ti­val. Shield­inch Shenan­ni­gans

We are still on our hol­i­days from River City and start back film­ing to­wards the end of this month.

It will be so lovely to go back and see all of my pals and I’m ex­cited to get my new scripts to find out what’s in store for our Ellie.

Will she find hap­pi­ness again? I hope so. She’s a good lassie af­ter all, who just wants the best for peo­ple.

I’ll be sure to send you all some snaps of our first days back on set in a few weeks. Tanks A Lot!

Now the one woman show has been tack­led, I am quickly mov­ing onto prepa­ra­tions for the next big event of the year, Gary Tank Com­man­der: Mis­sion Quite Pos­si­ble at the SSE Hydro!

We have our first read-through sched­uled this month which is very ex­cit­ing.

I bumped into my pal Greg who is the writer and star of the show and he told me a lit­tle about what he has planned.

Let me tell you it is go­ing to be an ab­so­lute BEL­TER!

Greg and I are also re­ally chuffed to be per­form­ing as Gary and Julie at this year’s BBC Proms In The Green.

We have a re­hearsal for this soon and it will be very funny for Greg and I to be in a room singing to­gether.

Singing is some­thing we have never done to­gether, in fact I have never even heard my pal Greg sing, so I hope he is bet­ter than Gary! Fe­line Good!

Last month I was in­vited by my lovely friends at the Ed­in­burgh playhouse to their press night of CATS (it’s in Glasgow from Septem­ber 1317).

My friend Con­nor McAl­lis­ter is in the cast (I know how cool is he?!) as he is the walk­ing cover for Old Dueteron­omy’(like I said - how cool is he?!) as well as Busto­pher Jones, Gus and Growltiger.

I was thrilled for Con­nor when he was cast in this pro­duc­tion as it is just an ab­so­lute clas­sic and to say you have per­formed in CATS is an in­cred­i­ble achieve­ment.

He was so lovely to take me back­stage with my wee niece So­phie and we met… Mr Misto­folees! Eeeek!

That was a child­hood bucket list wish ticked off!

Shiv Rab­hera who plays Mag­i­cal Mr Misto­folees is such an in­cred­i­ble tal­ent and for him to take the time to meet us in full cos­tume on his press night was the loveli­est thing ever. Thanks again to my buddy Con­nor for ar­rang­ing this. Quote of the fort­night:
