The Blue Toon All Stars pulled off yet another great performance in Peterhead recently.
The Bosie, a true North-East tale, was staged at Peterhead Community Theatre last month.
Performed over three sold-out nights, with it’s minimal set, it’s quirky, loathsome and loveable characters and it’s imaginative staging, The Bosie carried the audience along on the emotional journey of a year in the life of the farming McIntosh family culminating in the terrible tragedy that befell them in the winter of 1914.
Great sound quality, atmospheric lighting, period costume and set, projected images, a mix of recorded and live music, sound effects, a slick backstage crew and a talented cast of 18 that acted with their hearts and souls all contributed towards the Peterhead Community Centre Theatre audiences sharing a unique theatrical experience they are unlikely to forget for quite some time.
Manager of Willowbank Day Services Una Simpson, said: “People were leaving the theatre visibly moved but also singing the praises of everyone involved and saying they couldn’t wait until the next one.”
Writer, producer and director Morag Skene added: “I’d read this true tragic tale in a local book a few years back and it really touched a chord.
“I decided to make the central theme one of regret - hence the bosie that never happens.
“I’m so thankful to our audiences who made full use of their imaginations throughout and extremely proud of the cast who with their heart-felt humour, humility, pathos and passion, lifted my writing right off the page.”
