THE smash hit show Girls’ Night Oot comes to The Playhouse next month promising a night of laughs and all your favourite hits of the 60s, 70s, and 80s.

Having played venues across Scotland the show makes it’s Capital debut bringing hilarious banter, cheeky surprises and stunning singing to the Greenside Place theatre.

The story revolves around a group of best friends, one is getting married and her pals decide to throw her a hen night to remember.

The events that unfold are funny, crazy and occasionally a little heart breaking.

Throughout it all the girls belt out a host of favourite chart hits. Those ‘girls’ include four of Scotland’s most popular musical theatre performers - Donna Hazelton, Lauren Ellis-Steele, Natalie Tulloch and Alison Rona Cleland.

Hazelton, winner of the hit Channel 4 show Musicality, went on to appear in Chicago and The Sound of Music and is well known to Fringe audiences as The Queen in Robin Mitchell’s hit children’s show Princess Pumpalot: The Farting Princess.

She says, “I just love being part of this show. The audience reactions are just amazing and give us all such a buzz.

“It’s so exciting to be bringing the show to the brilliant Playhouse.”

Ellis-Steele, who recently toured the UK in Wicked, adds, “I’m so happy to be bringing our show to The Playhouse with these girls, and I always love being part of Girls’ Night Oot.

“The night is always filled with fun and laughter. If you fancy a great night out this is definitely the show for you.”

Cleland, who recently appeared in Legally Blonde, joins in, “Girls’ Night Oot is a high energy, laugh-a-minute show.

“It feels like a slightly different performance at every venue because we involve the audience so much.

“I love the freshness and realness of the show. If I wasn’t in the show I’d be there front and centre in the audience, ready to get my dancing on and laugh my head off.

“I can’t wait to bring the show to the amazing Edinburgh audience.”

Joining the girls on this adventure, Tulloch muses, “It’s great being part of this, and to be able to take it on to Edinburgh is amazing.

“The show is filled with uplifting tunes to get you in the party mood... and at the end of every performance I feel like I’ve actually been on a night out.”

Girls’ Night Oot premiered in April 2016, and is the sequel to I Will Survive.
