BUCKHAVEN Theatre was recently taken over – and the audiences won over – by a variety performance with an extra wow factor.

Around 30 centre users from the Robert Gough Centre took to the stage for three performances over Thursday and Friday and, according to organisers, the show went down an absolute storm.

Ian Rowbotham said: “The experience was amazing.

“The main aim was to have a lot of fun. They had a ball!”

The variety show featured a section based on ‘life’ which saw the actors tell their stories as photographs of them as children growing up provided the backdrop on stage.

Other sections included old-fashioned slapstick sketches in the style of Laurel and Hardy.

The show even featured the ‘Kate Bush Sisters’ who affectionately mocked the flamboyant ‘Wow’ songstress.

And, in a rousing finale, the entire team performed ‘Is This the Way to Amarillo?’

Hosts for the evening were Michael Wilkie, Willie Christie and Lizzie Wyllie.

The afternoon audience on Thursday comprised colleagues and staff from the Robert Gough Centre.

Relatives, carers and members of the public had the chance to join in all the fun on the Thursday evening and Friday afternoon.
