Stephen Beattie contacted me regarding this particular show. If anyone can offer more information please contact me or comment on this post. Thank you.
The Black Watch Association Pipe Band played at the Theatre Royal on the 26th April 1987 for a show called Thanks for the Memory. We marched from the back of the theatre, down the aisles and up onto the stage where we played a selection of tunes. I can’t remember the name of the promoter, but would be delighted if you could add any more details about it.
I have asked a few fellow Theatre Royal volunteers and attached is the playbill from the show. We think Stephen Hearson, who sadly passed away recently, may have been involved on the musical side of things.
I was prompted by the playbill to dig deeper and found the following: The title of the production in 1987 was THANKS FOR THE MEMORIES. It was produced by Fred Van Buren whose agent, Don Ross had toured a show called THANKS FOR THE MEMORY which played at the Theatre Royal in 1956.
For the 1987 production I have a list of names for Members of the Company, Solo Artists, Gorgeous Gaiety Girls and Backroom staff.
