Memories of Showcase 2000

  • The show opened with Shall We Dance and closed with Don't let the Sun go Down on Me followed by There's no Business Like Show Business.

  • The cast were all presented with Macmillan green ribbons, and a special Macmillan cake.

  • The after show party was in a new venue - Marcos at Slateford.

  • Three fundraising concerts were held in May - two in St Mary's and one in St Michael's. Some audience members went to the wrong St Mary's!

  • The show had children in it for the first time since 1995 - singing Do Re Mi and Edelweiss, with Karen Pearce and Ian Hunter respectively (one of these children was Amanda McLaren, who went on to become a full company member for the next two shows).

  • The Beatles section recreated the cover of Sergeant Pepper on stage.

  • Fun moment #1: Crofton walking on stage for Good Vibrations with his shirt from Rock Around The Clock still hanging out the back of his jeans!

  • Unusually, the auditions were held on a Saturday - due to a Hearts/Hibs derby scheduled for the original Sunday date.

  • The weekend away was in Galashiels, and was mercifully free of fancy dress.

  • Fundraising pub crawl had teams dressed as decades - with some interesting eighties wear as well as the standard fifties and sixties gear!

  • Fun moment #2: Gary Gray's impression of Chewin' The Fat's hapless actor Ronald Villiers, while dressed as The Phantom of the Opera.
