Rumours have been doing the rounds since the show was announced as to which actors would bring the famous family to life.

Still Game favourite Paul Riley, who plays Winston in the popular TV show, will play Paw, while River City’s Joyce Falconer, will star as his wife, Maw.

The impressive line-up also includes Kern Falconer as Granpaw and Maureen Carr as the Bairn – one of the most anticipated casting choices.

Playing the rest of the Glebe Street gang will be Tyler Collins as Hen, Laura Szalecki as Daphne, Euan Bennet as Horace, John Kielty as Joe, Kim Allan as Maggie and Kevin Lennon and Duncan Brown as The Twins.

Written by award-winning writer Rob Drummond, the show will see the family prepare for Maggie’s wedding, building on a storyline that appeared in a Broons strip in 1977 but was never published.

The production marks the 80th anniversary of The Broons and opens at Perth Concert Hall on September 27, before making its way to Inverness, Kirkcaldy, Stirling, Aberdeen, Ayr, Dundee, Edinburgh and Glasgow.
