Audiences at the Adam Smith Theatre this week are in for a treat as Kirkcaldy Amateur Operatic Society (KAOS) performs its latest production.

After months of rehearsals the company’s version of Top Hat – made famous by the 1935 film starring Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers – runs at the Bennochy Road venue until Saturday.

The theatre show, which was first performed in 2011, contains many well known songs from Irving Berlin such as Let’s Face the Music and Dance, Puttin’ on the Ritz and Cheek to Cheek.

The musical tells the story of Broadway tap dancing sensation Jerry Travers (played by Scott Binnie) who comes to London to appear in a stage show from producer Horace Hardwick (Clark Graham).

After meeting Dale Tremont (played by Wendy Tulloch), Travers dances his way across Europe to win the heart of the society girl.

It’s a tale of love, laughter and mistaken identity.
