ICONIC songs from Scottish rock duo The Proclaimers will fill Carnegie Hall next week.

The Rosyth and District Musical Society (RDMS) will be performing timeless classics such as I'm On My Way and I'm Gonna Be (500 Miles) in their production of Sunshine on Leith the Musical, which opens at the Dunfermline theatre on Wednesday, March 29.

David Tillier, the Company Director, told the Press: "Everyone's very excited to get back. Obviously we had our production in October last year of Sound of the City, but this is our first full musical since being able to return from the pandemic.

"Overall there's a great buzz in rehearsals at the moment. Sunshine on Leith is very homely to people, as well with it being Scottish based, so there's a general excitement amongst the cast."

The cast have walked 500 miles, and 500 more, to bring to life the story of pals Ally and Davy as they struggle to find normality after returning to Scotland from war.

It's a popular musical, but not to worry if you've seen it before, David assures fans that his production features modern elements, ensuring that the RDMS performance is truly one of a kind.

He continued: "For me, in terms of my style, I brought Sunshine on Leith into the current world. Now, Sunshine on Leith has been rewritten, so the version we are doing is a different version to that was released previously to the movie, there's a lot of new characters that you might not have seen in previous versions.

"Personally, this is a true reflection of day to day life. I mean, we talk about Brexit in this, we talk about Nicola Sturgeon, we talk about referendums in this version as well, so it's very much the day-to-day life of a person living this situation in Edinburgh.

"We touch upon the highs and lows of emotion, absolutely, but if you came and saw Sunshine on Leith you would see what is maybe your own life reflected on the stage, and I think there's opportunities to relate personally to a lot of things in this story."

All 37 members of the cast, including the two young Highland dancers joining them from Dunedin Dance Academy, are excited to perform. They will be putting on a total of five shows, each night at 7.15pm from Wednesday, March 29, to Saturday, April 1, and a Saturday matinee at 2pm.

David added: "If you've seen it three times, I guarantee you'll come and see mine and it's going to be something different!"
