THIRD DEGREE BURNS

Burns

Touring north east Scotland from January 2017

 

Third Degree Burns is a two-act musical-comedy farce with a difference! Featuring traditional, and maybe not so traditional music by a small band of musicians who are also members of the seven-strong cast. Each act runs for approximately 40 minutes. There will be a 15 minute interval.

The play is set in the hall of the fictitious small Scottish village of Auchenweary in the present day on Burns night to which all the local worthies are, of course invited as they are each year without fail, to celebrate the Great Bard in their rigidly traditional way.

The Speeches have been dusted off from last year and all seems well except: This year the whole event has been organised by a bumbling and egotistical English businessman who, although new to the area has very definite views about how the event should be run, and that is:  To be used as a means to advance his growing business empire. He arrogantly ignores accepted protocols and long held ancient traditions and sweeps aside all advice, thinking he knows best……….What can possibly go wrong?

 

 

 

The true story of a dazzling scientific discovery during the second half of the 18th century. It tells how revolutionary thinker Lord Monboddo, his brilliant daughter Eliza and the poet Robert Burns risked all in the pursuit of truth…

The songs are well crafted, catchy and memorable…Tragic yet romantic…Joyful yet sad…With plenty of passionate patriotism to boot.

 An engaging and inventive show… A lavish production…this new musical grips its’ audience.

Lord Monboddo – The Enlightenment Man, centres on the life of James Burnett, recognised as one of the earliest exponents of evolutionary thought and a key character in the Scottish Enlightenment of the 18th century. As Monboddo struggles to rationalise his beliefs on the roots of man, and have them taken seriously, a romance blossoms between his beloved daughter, Eliza, and the young Robert Burns, but the tale was to end in tragedy.

Written by award-winning journalist and filmmaker David Ewen, the show is brought to life by the creative team at Blitz Entertainment Ltd International, led by director Muzz Crandon.

“Along with his peers, Monboddo explored the belief that mankind and the great apes – in particular the orang-utan – shared similarities too close to be considered coincidence,” says James Burnett.

A Taste of Scotland Cabaret

Celebrates the legacy, heritage and culture of Scotland with music, comedy and verse, in a light and fun way.  This is a cabaret show, taking you on a magical tour through some of the best Scottish classics. Some played traditionally as they were written and some arranged with a more modern feel. Some are classics hundreds of years old where others are relatively new.

Featuring live singers and musicians playing violins, 12 string and 6 string guitars, bass and piano, A Taste of Scotland will take you on some well trod paths and others you may never have explored before. The performance is in two (approximate) 45 minute segments with a 20 minute interval and is presented in a very informal cabaret format.

Enjoy the journey

 

 

The Mad Hatters Tea Party

This is a specially written 40 minute kids show perfect for corporate family days. Whilst the mums and dads relax in the bar, the kids will meet the Knave of Clubs who steals the Hatters giant teapot to please the Queen of Hearts and puts it in a magic box.
