FRESH from his pantomime debut as Dandini in the acclaimed Gaiety Theatre production of Cinderella, Troon man Scott Watson is looking forward to what will be his biggest solo show on these shores.

The former Marr College pupil has gathered his friends for a fun-filled night of comedy and music tomorrow at the Ayr venue tomorrow night (Wednesday) and he will be joined by award-winning Forehill Primary School Choir, World Champion Pipe Band- 1st Troon Boys Brigade and his girlfriend, singer Nicole Flynn from County Kerry.

He said: "I'm looking forward to the show, everything is coming together. I hope it goes down as well as we're expecting to, people want a high standard."

Scott has spent the last two years in Ibiza and Majorca, performing at Thomson Gold Hotels in musical, rat pack and rock shows. He also performed at ‘The Maltings Theatre’ in Berwick Upon Tweed, playing ‘The Prince role’ in both Sleeping Beauty (2016) and Little Red Riding Hood (2015).

But he enjoyed the Gaiety seasonal experience and added: "The panto was a great experience, I got to meet everyone from all over Britain and guests from Newcastle and Wales are coming up to the Gaiety on Wednesday."

Joining him will be 1st Troon Pipe Band and Forehill Primary School.

Scott (24), who graduated from Stow College with a BA Honours in Musical Theatre, is delighted to earn his moment in the spotlight and added: "I had a show on at the Harbour Arts Centre in Irvine last year and it went so well we had to put on an extra night. Then I landed this show February. It was a big jump to take on the Gaiety, especially since the theatre are not getting as much funding now they won't have unproven young talent in the theatre - only shows that would sell. I'm sure it will sell out - at the moment only seven tickets are left."

The variety show features the 1st Troon Pipe Band and the award-winning Forehill Primary School choir.

Also taking part are the dancers from the pantomime.

Scott will perform comedy routines and sing Superstition by Stevie Wonder, songs from Les Miserables, Shut Up and Dance and Castle on the Hill by Ed Sheeran mashed up with James Arthur's Say You Won't Let Me Go. Girlfriend Nicole will perform songs from Titanic and current release, The Greatest Showman.

He will keep it in the family as his dad, David Watson will play the piano and grandfather Iain Wallace the drums.

In the build-up to the show Scott feels a sense of apprehension and said: "I will have a few butterflies on the night I expect, but we have been rehearsing in preparation for it."

At the end of show, there will be a bucket collection to be split between Marie Curie Cancer Care and the Gaiety.
