New shows have been announced which will bring stage versions of silver screen classics to the Granite City.
Adaptations of The Girl On The Train, Saturday Night Fever and The Bodyguard are all heading for His Majesty’s Theatre, later this year.
“Film and theatre audiences alike will be spoilt for choice with these new shows,” said Ben Torrie, pictured, Aberdeen Performing Arts director of programming and creative projects.
“Whether you relish a thriller, are moved by musicals or have a soft spot for a love story, there’s something for everyone.
“The Bodyguard and Saturday Night Fever are firm favourites, and The Girl on the Train is a new play guaranteed to keep you on the edge of your seat.”
First up will be The Girl On The Train, a gripping version of the blockbuster novel by Paula Hawkins.
