THE SINGING Kettle’s newest recruit was in Arbroath this week to spread the word about their new show next month.
On Monday, Anya Scott-Rodgers was at Arbroath Abbey to promote the Singing Kettle’s show ‘Rumble in the Jungle’ at the Webster Memorial Theatre on Saturday, April 6, and Sunday April 7.
Anya will be joined by fellow Singing Kettle members Kevin McLeod and Gary Coupland MBE as they journey deep into the undergrowth in search of Magic Coloured Kettles and find clues to songs that will entertain the whole family.
There will be music, mayhem, old friends and new, including the mischievous Bonzo the Dog and plenty of songs along the way such as ‘Leap Frog’, ‘Do Your Ears Hang Low’, ‘Friends Like You’ and ‘Bear Hunt’.
Anya (26), from Glasgow, has had a long association with the Singing Kettle having been picked out of the audience at the Lanark Memorial Hall at the age of six while dressed as the Wee Kircudbright Centipede.
She joined the Singing Kettle earlier this year and is an actress, singer and children’s entertainer with a host of qualifications to boot, including an MA Hons in English and Theatre Studies from Glasgow University.
She can also play the saxophone, piano, guitar and bass and has also turned her hand to the more exotic mandolin, ocarina, frog guiro, bodhran, miniature accordion and kazoo.
There will be fun galore for boys and girls of all ages and tickets are available from the Webster Memorial Box Office on 01241 435800.
