A PACKED season of spring shows in Dunfermline promises to beat the winter blues for theatre-goers.

OnFife, the cultural trust, has announced its line-up of upcoming events – including classic musicals, comedians and tribute acts.

Carnegie Hall will kick things off with Perthshire stand-up and farmer Jim Smith on March 3 as he tells tales of rural life.

With his trademark mix of regional accents and impressions, Jim shares anecdotes from his changing world which has seen him get engaged, become a first-time father and continue farming through COVID and Brexit.

The venue will also take guests across the Forth with Rosyth and District Musical Society's production of Sunshine on Leith between March 29 and April 1.

The funny and moving story follows two soldiers after their return to Scotland from Afghanistan, set to the soundtrack of iconic music by The Proclaimers.

Kelty Musical Association will then be bringing their version of Summer Holiday: The Musical to the city, while the spring months will also see performances of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, Disco Inferno: In Concert, and Shape of You – The Music of Ed Sheeran.

Other highlights include three concerts by the Band of His Majesty’s Royal Marines which concludes with A Night at the Musicals on March 23, and a Fiddlers’ Rally featuring Dunfermline Strathspey and Reel Society.

Karen Taylor, OnFife programme manager, said: "It’s been fantastic welcoming back audiences in recent months after all the disruption, so it’s great to keep things going with our new spring programme.

"Spring season is always eagerly anticipated at OnFife, and, having lost out these past three years, 2023 promises to be an especially joyful time for our audiences."
