Llandyll Gove is putting on a musical theatre night in Montrose for one night only.

For one night only, a musical theatre night is set to be held in Montrose to raise money for Motor Neurone Disease Scotland.

‘West End in the Gable End’ will take to the stage at Montrose Town Hall on March 2 with brand new songs composed by Llandyll Gove, professional performer originally from Montrose, plus classic musical favourites from Broadway and the West End.

For every ticket sold, £1 will be donated to MND (Motor Neurone Disease) Scotland.

Llandyll is excited to be staging his first concert where his performing days began, Montrose Town Hall. He said: “Growing up I did all my shows here with the likes of The Gordon School Of Dancing, Montrose Operatic Society, Class Act and later The Song Shop. It’s a great venue for the town and I have always wanted to stage my own show here.

“I really hope the town gets behind the show and comes to support it, especially with some of the proceeds going to charity. It will be a great night of entertainment.”

‘West End in the Gable End’ will star seven professional performers from the West End and TV and will feature a choir of local singers.

Between the seven performers, they have been in a catalogue of West End shows, including ‘Evita’, ‘Grease’, ‘Whistle Down The Wind’ and ‘Phantom Of The Opera’. One of the performers also stars in the popular soap, ‘River City’. The cast are to be announced soon.

Tickets are £10 and are available from Henry Hoggs newsagents and booksellers on the High Street.

Llandyll has worked extensively in the UK and abroad since graduating from The Glasgow Academy of Musical Theatre Arts in 2009.

He has just finished playing the role of Aladdin in the Cork Opera House in Ireland. Before that he completed filming on a new movie musical called ‘Holiday’ due for a cinema release this summer.

Prior to that, he played Kenickie in ‘Grease’ in the Irish production. This was after a 20 month UK Tour of ‘Grease’.
