UWS Students Present Scottish Premiere of MARGUERITE
The University Of The West Of Scotland’s BA Musical Theatre student’s production this year is the Scottish Premier of the musical Marguerite.
We are delighted to present the Scottish premier of this romantic and dramatic musical in the beautiful Rutherglen Town Hall from Weds 19th to Tues 25th January.
Alain Boublil and Claude-Michel Schönberg, the creators of Les Miserables, like to set love stories against vast political backdrops. In Miss Saigon they transplanted a Madam Butterfly-style relationship to the Vietnam War. In Marguerite, the musical for which they have written the book, they have updated La Dame aux Camelias – the inspiration for Verdi’s La Traviata – to Paris during the Nazi occupation.
Tickets are available from the Town Hall on 0141 613 5700 priced at £10.00 and £6.50.
