Shang-A-Lang

Saturday 4 October 7.30pm

Shang-A-Lang
Rapture Theatre

A wonderfully funny and poignant trip back to the 70s.
Written by Catherine Johnson
Directed by Michael Emans

Take a step back in time to the days of the Bay City Rollers, with loud fashions and, laugh out loud, adult humour.

Written by Catherine Johnson, (writer of the hit musical Mamma Mia!) Shang-a-Lang follows three flighty forty-something Scottish women on their way to a 70s revival weekend in Butlins, where the Bay City Rollers are playing. They were all Rollerettes back in the day and decide it is time to recapture their youth, chase their unfulfilled dreams and have a ball while they do it.

Lauren tries to stay sober, Jackie tries to stay married and Pauline continues to search for her Woody.

Shang-a-Lang is the perfect girls’ night out laced with shocking laughs, warm tears and a fabulous soundtrack - a cross between a Scottish Shirley Valentine and Shameless.

Please note that Shang a Lang is a play, not a musical.
Please also note: In the comedic style of the play, the show contains strong language, scenes of a sexual nature and nudity.

Jack and the Beanstalk

After the great success of SLEEPING BEAUTY in 2012, Angus Council is delighted to welcome back award winning playwright and director JOHN BINNIE for the Webster Memorial Theatre's production of JACK AND THE BEANSTALK.

Life is tough down on the farm. Dopey Jack and his celebrity daft Mither can't pay the rent. They are forced to sell the family pet - Daisy the cow. Luckily Jack sells Daisy in exchange for magic beans. Suddenly at the bottom of his garden, an enormous beanstalk shoots up overnight.

Action, adventure and romance, JACK AND THE BEANSTALK has it all. A traditional Family Panto with a professional cast who perform alongside local youngsters to bring alive the larger than life characters of JACK AND THE BEANSTALK. With loads of laughs, audience participation, beautiful singing, and eye-catching designs there's something for all the family.

Come along and be entertained in true pantomime style and enjoy the Webster Memorial Theatre's professional family pantomime adventure.

Be sure to climb up the beanstalk with us this Christmas. Book your tickets today.

Sleeping Beauty is a well polished and highly entertaining Panto... with belly laughs and silliness a plenty... the slick production had everything the family Panto needs... Johnston Ralston, Arbroath Herald 2012

69 Shades Of Black

Saturday 25 April 2015 7.30pm

69 Shades Of Black
Starring Faye Tozer of STEPS as 'Christina Black'

Boring, vanilla, Horlick's swiller William Shight’s most interesting trait has always been his snigger inducing name. Up until now that is!

Since landing his dream job at one of the country’s top advertising agencies, things have taken a nipple twisting turn for the shocking. Christina Black, the company director, has taken a shine to our William and attempts to seduce him with an indecent proposal.

Clearly overwhelmed by the attention and having no friends or family to turn to, poor William decides the only thing he can do is seek the advice of the only two men in his life he can trust, the hilariously argumentative Gabriel and Gideon...his sex conscience.

Willy tries in vain to resist but in the end relents and signs a 69 page contract, the one Chrisitna intends to use to make a man out of him! The 20 pages of “don’t” and 49 pages of “do whatever the hell I want” will lead William on a hilariously painful journey of a lifetime.

Guided by his argumentative conscience., can he salvage his integrity and ability to sit down without grimacing? Or will he be completely corrupted by the seductive power of Christina and the sixty nine?? Only William’s “true self” can decide the outcome!

This hilarious new comedy has a whip cracking script that promises to leave you wincing and laughing in all the right places.
