Scottish star Elaine has carved a strong presence in the entertainment industry for more than 30 years working across radio, television, film and theatre.

She is widely recognised for her portrayal of Mary Doll in the BBC comedy production Rab C Nesbitt, and is one of the few women in the UK to consistently headline in major pantomimes, completing eight years at His Majesty’s Theatre in Aberdeen.

Mr Garcia received rave reviews for his performance as Julian Marsh in 42nd Street.

His musical theatre credits include Tony Manero in Saturday Night Fever and Bill Calhoun in Kiss Me, Kate, and he received Olivier Award nominations for both roles.

The musical, based on Ian Fleming’s timeless children’s story which was later adapted into a 1968 film, will dazzle audiences with its memorable songs by the Sherman Brothers including Toot Sweets and the Academy Award nominated title song, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang.

The narrative follows Caractacus Potts, an absent-minded inventor who, with the assistance of his children, revives a dilapidated old racing car.

The new production will be directed by Thom Southerland, choreographed by Karen Bruce and casting by Debbie O’Brien.
