Ross Copland of gift shop ‘Huckleberry’ in Murray Street is quickly earning a reputation for his window displays.

These are dedicated to promoting the productions of local amateur musical societies.

His latest creation is being admired by the ‘Pink Ladies’ and Sandy from The Song Shop’s production of ‘Grease’ which runs in Montrose Town Hall, starting at 7.30pm, until Friday.

Ross is a member of the props team, and can often be seen in local charity shops sourcing items that add the final touches to the show.

Ross told the Review that props for different shows can some from all sorts of different sources.

For example, Robert Ritchie has loaned a period record player for Grease, and charity shops are a good source of records.

He said: “The charity shops are a good hunting ground for props, and the staff know me and keep an eye open for something that might be useful.”

An example of this is a cut-out, wooden, palm tree standing in Huckleberry!

Tickets for Grease are available from Henry Hogg, Newsagents, High Street.

There are limited tickets left for the Friday performance.
