SCOTTISH national treasure and prime entertainer Dave Anderson will be in Hawick on Tuesday night with his touring show ‘Shoo-Be-Do! or How to Talk to Old People’.

The actor, playwright, musical director and musician – best-known for his role as the bank manager in City Lights and the Dad in Gregory’s Girl, as well as penning songs in the world-famous play The Steamie – is performing in Tower Mill.

Part stand-up, part cabaret, part musical theatre, the show’s theme is Dave’s teenage years in the late 1950s when rock ‘n’ roll was king, and the audience can expect hits (and forgotten classics), plus new songs of his own. Glasgow-based Dave will also talk about the contrasts between life then and now, discuss the business of writing – and surviving the 21st Century. Rapture Theatre, Scotland’s foremost touring theatre company, is delighted to be working with Dave on his latest show. The show starts at 7.30pm, £9/£8.
