IT'S time to get on board as Kelty Clippie The Musical returns to Fife for another entertaining and laugh out loud journey.

After a sell-out run at the Edinburgh Fringe, it's motoring back cross the Forth for a performance on Saturday September 28.

The extended show has more songs, more laughs and more fun than ever before and with a surprise special guest on board.

Kingdom Theatre Company, formed in 2012 to promote new work and give work experience and public performances to young talents, bring their production direct to Lochgelly Theatre for a 2pm matinee performance.

It stars Maggie (Jacqueline Hannan) as she applies to be a Kelty Clippie and is interviewed by (ex-Nazareth vocalist) Linton Osborne.

Her driver Bob, played by Steve Ponton, convinces her to visit the legendary Kelty Club and we follow the comic adventures from there.

Written by John Murray and directed by Laura Jordan Reed, the musical is based on John Watt’s classic folk song and includes original songs by Willie Logan, such as I Want This, Ringing The Bell and Life In Fife, as well as some standards we all know and love.

The show was at the Carnegie Hall earlier in the year and was a big hit with local audiences, before transferring to the fringe for a summer run in the capital.

After watching the show in Dunfermline earlier this year, Times theatre critic Kerry Black said: "It was brilliant to see the multi-talented Jacqueline Hannan back as Maggie Blair, a local Fife lassie whose dreams of being a clippie come true when she is given the premiere route!

“Forget the Orient Express, Maggie is on a double decker hurtling fae Kirkcaldy tae Kelty with a multitude of mad characters on board her Alexander’s bus."

She added: “While the first half of the show takes place on the bus, the second half transports us to the glittering palace of Kelty Club, where Maggie’s two backing singers looked awfy like the auld burds on her bus.

“This is a show packed with nostalgia, pathos and great humour. It was pitched perfectly at the audience and once again the 'Full House' signs were outside the theatre for both shows!"

If you’d enjoy a glimpse back to a land of Green Shield stamps, fag coupons and Fife pits, then get along to Lochgelly to see the Kelty Clippie.

But be warned, tickets are going fast. Go to to book.
