La Bohème - Opera Bohemia
Opera Bohemia, Scotland's professional touring company, comes to Forfar with Giacomo Puccini’s romantic tragedy and one of the world's most loved operas. La Bohème is the tale of Mimi, the young seamstress, whose failing health can’t prevent her from falling in love with the charismatic poet, Rodolfo. This energetic and youthful production, accompanied by violin and piano, captures all the emotional highs and lows in Puccini’s romantic score; from playful banter to the rush of first love, to the devastating pain of heartbreak and loss. Sung in Italian with English subtitles, this intimate production by John Wilkie promises to be a memorable night for opera lovers and newcomers alike.

"One of the most exciting new opera companies in the country” (The Herald)

Tony Stockwell, Psychic Medium
Remarkably compelling, amazingly detailed and always humorous.
The popular star of TV’s Street Psychic, Psychic Private Eyes and Psychic Academy, Tony Stockwell has a long established credibility as one of the top Intuitive Mediums and has shared the stage all round the world with international mediums such as Colin Fry, James van Praagh and Lisa Williams. Tony demonstrates his belief that those who have passed can communicate with their loved ones with detailed messages frequently including names, dates and locations and all delivered with emotion, sensitivity and empathy. The evening may include psychometry, photographs readings and psychic prediction.
Recent legislative guidelines insist that any Evening of Mediumship should be billed ‘for entertainment purposes’. Tony certainly uses his natural wit, showmanship and Cockney charisma to entertain but more important, Mediumship has the potential to change someone’s life and instil in them a sense of peace, comfort and purpose. We hope that nobody can fail to come away untouched by the experience

Doug Scott - Crawling Down The Ogre
The Ogre is the most difficult of the world’s high mountains to climb. In 1977 Doug Scott and Chris Bonington made the first ascent; their subsequent descent, in the dark, immediately became an epic. Abseiling off the summit tower, Doug slipped on ice and swung into the cliff he had just climbed, breaking both legs just - shortly after, a storm blew in! Their escape is one of mountaineering’s greatest epics.

The Andrews Sisters
The Andrews Sisters were America's most successful female vocal harmony group during the 1940s. When the sisters burst upon the music scene in the late 1930s, they shook a very solid musical foundation, producing a slick harmonic blend by singing at the top of their lungs while trying-successfully-to emulate the blare of three harmonizing trumpets. Maxine, Patti and LaVerne appeared regularly on radio shows and in 17 Hollywood movies with stars such as Bing Crosby and Abbott & Costello as well as singing with most of the famous Big Bands of the era including Glenn Miller, Tommy and Jimmy Dorsey, Benny Goodman and Xavier Cugat.
Now the UK's only celebration of the Andrews Sisters backed by a full big band (the Moonlight Serenade Orchestra UK) re-creates the fabulous close harmony sound and feel of those swinging days when they headlined not only in America but also at the London Palladium with numbers such as Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy, Rum & Coca Cola and Bei Mir Bist Du Schoen along with the best loved instrumentals from the big bands such as In The Mood, Opus One, Sing, Sing, Sing and Moonlight Serenade and showcase solos from each of the Sisters.

Carpenters Gold – Live in Concert
Produced by London West End Director of 80's Mania, The Abba Reunion Tribute Show and Abba Mania.
Carpenters Gold authentically performs their Greatest hits, such as Goodbye to Love, Solitaire, We've Only Just Begun, Top of the World, Yesterday Once More, Superstar, plus many more; recreating the look and sound of their worldwide 1970 tours, including a special highlight where 'Karen' plays the drums with her full live backing band.
The iconic voice of Karen Carpenter is a magically soothing one, and few vocalists can attempt to emulate her accurately. But International West End vocalist Vikki Holland-Bowyer has the warm dulcet tones which sound uncannily similar to the superstar. She undertakes the character of Karen superbly, paying meticulous attention to her mannerisms, 'brother – sister' relationship with 'Richard', and the playful interaction with her band and audience.
'Richard Carpenter', played by musical arranger vocalist Greg Stevenson, is also featured in the show performing on the piano, alongside his 'sister' enjoying on stage humour, often introducing the array of hits whilst light-heartedly engaging with his musicians.
Carpenters Gold supremely captures how they were ‘live in concert’ and is a must for all fans of the fantastic Karen and Richard.

Legends of Irish music & song The FUREYS, renowned for their hit songs ‘I will love you’, ‘When you were sweet 16’, ‘The Green fields of France’, ‘The old man’, ‘Red rose café’, ‘From Clare to here’, ‘Her father didn’t like me anyway’, ‘Leaving Nancy’, ‘Steal away’ etc return to Webster Memorial Theatre on Friday 25th May 2018 as part of their 40th Anniversary tour.
The band was formed in 1978 literally by accident. George, Paul and Davey were playing in Denmark with their own band called the Buskers and Eddie and Finbar, while touring in Germany were involved in a road accident. When George and Paul got news of the accident they immediately travelled to Germany to be with their brothers. They then decided that they should all be playing together and this was the start of the FUREYS.
Inevitably changes have occurred over 40 years. Their brother Paul died suddenly in June 2002 and Finbar left the band in December 1996, however George and Eddie have continued to delight audiences on their tours and have just released a new 40th Anniversary CD.
The oldest of the brothers, Eddie Furey left home in 1966 and travelled to Scotland at the time of the great folk revival where he met and shared accommodation in Edinburgh with then unknown folk singers Billy Connolly, Gerry Rafferty and Alex Campbell, now all famous in their own right. In 1969 he was the special guest for the Clancy Brothers and Tommy Makem throughout the USA and Canada. Dave Stewart from the Eurythmics has credited Eddie with teaching him his first chords on guitar when they met up in the North East of England while Dave was still a teenager.
Their emotive songs stir many emotions,tears and laughter, sadness and joy.
