A Play, A Pie and A Pint (PPP) is thrilled to announce that Noisemaker’s acclaimed musical SCOTS is off to New York this April as part of the city’s iconic Tartan Week; an annual celebration and gathering of Scottish business, enterprise and culture.

The rousing musical, playfully retelling the history of Scotland on stage, is invited to perform a selection of songs at the Tartan Week Supper Club on Thursday 13 April, an annual event presented by the American Scottish Foundation.

Following that, the cast will be doing a concert performance at the prestigious Tony award-winning cabaret venue 54 Below on Sunday 16 April. This special performance will be directed by PPP’s Artistic Director Jemima Levick, produced by Brannon Bowers with music direction by Luke Williams.

The 2023 cast of SCOTS sees seven of the eight original members return from its debut run last year as part of PPP’s Spring 2022 season. Richard Conlon, Tyler Collins, Lauren Ellis-Steele and Grant McIntyre will be joined by Royal Conservatoire of Scotland students Sebastian Lim-Seet, Star Penders, Yana Harris and Mackenzie Wilcox

Scottish audiences will get the opportunity to see SCOTS in action before it heads to New York, with the sensational musical performing a week-long run at Òran Mór, Glasgow from Monday 3 – Saturday 8 April as part of our Spring 2023 season!

This project has been made possible thanks to support from Creative Scotland.

As writers, it’s a privilege to see work we’ve created and developed in Scotland have an international reach, and we’re thrilled to be bringing this exceptional cast and team to New York. We both can’t wait to share this slightly mad, musical rollercoaster through Scotland’s history with audiences both at home and across the sea.

SCOTS is a show that I’m immensely proud of, made with care and diligence by the small but brilliant Play, A Pie and A Pint team, joined with the unsurpassable talents of Noisemaker. This, for me, is exactly what we’re about; making small but brilliant shows that reach further than Glasgow to see a National and International audience.
– Jemima Levick, Artistic Director at A Play, A Pie and A Pint

It’s a wonderful opportunity for our BA Musical Theatre students Yana Harris, Star Penders, Sebastian Lim-Seet and Mackenzie Wilcox to perform in New York as part of Tartan Week celebrations, and at 54 Below, in a production created by RCS alumni. It will be a rich learning experience and an invaluable insight into professional life.
