Celtic The Musical will open at the Millennium Forum on Tues 27th Sept for a week-long run following its World Premier in Glasgow.
Featuring the songs that have rung round Celtic Park over the years, the show tells the amazing story of the legendary Scottish football club.
Created by Alterean Media with the official backing and support of the Club, the musical will take the audience on an emotion-charged journey from the foundation of the football club by
Brother Walfrid, its charitable origins through Willie Maley's legendary successes as manager and the scoring feats of Jimmy McGrory. From the wing wizardry of Jimmy Johnstone to the triumphs of the immortal Jock Stein and the lasting legacy left by icons such as Billy McNeill, Tommy Burns and Henrik Larsson.
The stage show also comes with the backing of Celtic Football Club with Celtic Chief Executive, Peter Lawwell commented: “Celtic is a Club like no other, with the richest history and tradition and a wonderful story which deserves to be told in this way”.
“The Musical will be a celebration of Celtic, one of the world’s true great football clubs and will take the audience on a fantastic journey through almost 130 years of history. We are sure this production will be extremely popular with all our supporters.”
Alterean Media previously enjoyed successes with the hit stage plays The Official History of Liverpool FC and One Night in Istanbul. Writer, Nicky Allt said:
“Celtic is a story about people, about immigration, and about a football club born of purpose. Growing up in Liverpool my family were always aware of Brother Walfrid, Celtic and its charitable foundations. Since then it has always been a story that resonated with me, fascinated me, and a story I always wanted to tell."
