Fans of the Bay City Rollers are in for a treat at the Webster Memorial Theatre on Saturday, October 4 when the Rapture Theatre Company perform ‘Shang-A-Lang’.

Written by Catherine Johnson (writer of ‘Mamma Mia!’) and directed by Michael Emans, this is a wonderfully funny and poignant trip back to the 70s.

Take a step back in time to the days of the Bay City Rollers, with loud fashions and laugh out loud adult humour.

‘Shang-a-Lang’ follows three flighty 40-something Scottish women on their way to a 70s revival weekend in Butlins, where the Bay City Rollers are playing.

They were all Rollerettes back in the day and decide it is time to recapture their youth, chase their unfulfilled dreams and have a ball while they do it.

Lauren tries to stay sober, Jackie tries to stay married and Pauline continues to search for her Woody.

‘Shang-a-Lang’ is the perfect girls’ night out laced with shocking laughs, warm tears and a fabulous soundtrack - a cross between a Scottish ‘Shirley Valentine’ and ‘Shameless’. It is a play, not a musical and contains strong language, scenes of a sexual nature and nudity.
