The sounds of the West End are coming to Fife.

It stars Jai McDowall and Michael Courtney, and is a celebration of the greatest songs from the stage.

The music covers everything from Rodgers and Hammerstein, Kander & Ebb, and Andrew Lloyd Webber to Boublil and Schonberg, and taps into great shows such as Evita and Miserables.
