Andy Johnson talking musicals this Saturday
Andy Johnson, Director of Showcase and this year's Southern Light Opera Company will join Gordon on Community Works on 14th January @ 11am alongside a recording from a special preview show of four amateur musical productions about to hit the Kings Theatre.
Bohemians Lyric Opera Company's production of Sister Act (18-21 February),
Southern Light Opera's Oliver (running 3rd-7th March),
Edinburgh Gilbert & Sullivan Society's Pirates of Penzance (running 24-29th March),
Showcase 25th Anniversary Show on 29/30th May.
The preview was compered with panache by Alan Borthwick who has a history with all the company's on show. 'Oliver' boasts the biggest cast ever but the principals on show gave you a starter to whet the appetite for the main course. The 'Pirates' soon got into their stride with old favourites from the show. 'Showcase' has raised close on a quarter of million pounds for McMillan Cancer relief and move from the Churchill to the King's to celebrate 25 years of music, dance and fundraising. Join Gordon and Andy Johnson to hear them talk about these shows and life at the heart of Amateur Musicals in Edinburgh
