Around 60 juniors from the Clydebank Musical Society will be performing a new comedy show set to the hits of Elvis.

Following the success of previous annual shows, Footloose and West Side Story, the youngsters are currently rehearsing All Shook Up ahead of performances next month.

This year, the musical society has added a matinee showing on Saturday, October 27 at 2pm.

The club was created so local people were able to watch affordable theatre and they are continuing the belief by allowing everyone to get the chance to see the show by providing a range of times and days.

Lewis Brown, junior chairman and a member of the cast, said: “We’re all really looking forward to the show. For a lot of the principles, this is their first time getting a main part so it’s great experience and gives them loads of confidence.

“All of the cast are really excited at the thought of the matinee as this gives them one more chance to perform with their friends up on stage. I’ve always loved Elvis music and to be given the chance to sing some of his songs is really exciting.”

Aged between 12-19, the juniors will take to the stage in October for four days to perform the comedy musical at Clydebank Town Hall.

The production team, director Mark Long, choreographer Carolyn Anderson and musical director Kieran Young, have all shown their commitment by working hard and ensuring the group give it their best.

Lewis added: “We have been rehearsing since April and it’s gotten to the point we’re out two or three times a week.

“Everyone, including principles, chorus and professional staff, are working really hard.

“The cast know how much Elvis songs mean to everyone, so they’re trying their hardest to make them just as good as the real thing. I am convinced everyone will love it as much as the cast and it will be just as successful as the shows before, which have been sell-outs.”
