Leah MacRae Weighs In – Theatre Royal, Dumfries – 29th April
Leah MacRae is back – and she’s not to be taken lightly…
In 2020 Leah was planning a massive year of gigs across Scotland but instead, like most of us, stayed home. When her TV Life as Ellie Mclean (River City) returned, live work across the UK and Scotland was still very much a dream. Chock fulla stories, opinions and a song or two, Leah returns with her own material and her fabulous singing voice to boot, after selling out a car park and Widow-Twankying her way through a panto season at SECC Armadillo, Leah is back on a stage near you this August with Leah MacRae Weighs In.
Star of Scotland’s soap River City, Gary: Tank Commander, My Big Fat Fabulous Diary and 51 Shades Of Maggie, Leah MacRae is hitting the world’s biggest comedy and performing arts festival as a “bona-fide stage star” with bags of “charisma and talent to burn” (The Scotsman).
Leah MacRae said:
In a similar theme to my ‘Big Fat, Fabulous Diary’ it’s about embracing who you are. Not taking yourself too seriously but also not letting others bring you down. Ultimately I want to remind my audiences of the importance of live entertainment and the necessary escapism it provides for us all. It’s good for your soul. I want people to leave my show with a smile on their face, feeling a stone lighter after shedding their worries.”
International comedy Producer and Director of MPW, Mick Perrin added: “A born entertainer with a show stopping voice and the stage presence of a mega star. Once unleashed outside of her Scottish homeland, where she’s a household name, Leah will undoubtedly climb the stairway to International fame.”
Leah has lots to say and lots to sing and it’s all going to be laid out as she weighs everything up. Your favourite West Coast powerhouse is back, with lungs and laughs to boot.
