Blackburn Musical Theatre Company returns following the rip-roaring, whip-cracking success of 2023 show Calamity Jane, with the jubilant and heart-felt musical SUNSHINE ON LEITH – a story about the power of home, family and love, featuring the songs of The Proclaimers.
Sunshine On Leith follows the highs and lows of Ally and his pal Davy as they search for normality after returning from a tour in Afghanistan. Families, friendships and life are not all plain sailing in the funny and moving story about love and life.
Ally's marriage proposal is rejected by his childhood sweetheart, a nurse disillusioned with the state of the NHS who plans a move to the US to further her career. Meanwhile, Davy gets a call centre job, while his parents war over the discovery, years on, of his father's infidelity.
Sunshine On Leith is a vibrant, energetic musical, loved by audiences and critics alike, which had a successful film adaptation in 2013 starring Jane Horrocks and George MacKay, and directed by Dexter Fletcher.
