Mean Girls Musical at Paisley Arts Centre

A musical version of the hit film, Mean Girls is making it’s Scottish Premier at Paisley Arts Centre next week, Thursday – Saturday. The musical has been written by Paisley born musical theatre singer and composer Antony Irwin, which premiered at London’s O2 last summer. For those of you have been with us a while, Tony played  leads in Starlight shows including ‘Marius’ in Les Miserables, ‘Tony’ in West Side Story and ‘Dr Jekyll’ / ‘Mr Hyde’ in Jekyll and Hyde before moving to London to study at Mountview Theatre School.

For those of you who haven’t seen the film, it is a typical teenage chick flick. Home schooled girl starts high school age 15, joins up the with pretty, cool ‘mean’ girls, tries to trick them, ends up hurting everyone then makes it all good in the end. It is a feel good show full of funny one liners and high energy pop songs.

1878-sytweegie

Participate in a theatre Q&A with The Weegie Board Director, Mary McCluskey.

Next week, Scottish Youth Theatre will be stopping off at Paisley Arts Centre to perform their latest show, ‘The Weegie Board: A West of Scotland Ghost Story’ written by BAFTA Scotland winner David Cosgrove.

1878-sytweegieContaining frightening scenes, ‘The Weegie Board’ depicts the exhilarating experience of six Glasgow teenagers who meddle with an Ouija Board.

Both funny and shocking at points, ‘The Weegie Board’ is set in a big old empty house, where the six teenagers indulge in a little bit of drinking and some flirting before conducting a séance with their spirit board – but what could possibly go wrong?
