Reviews are in for RCS’ Edinburgh Fringe shows!

Published: 10/08/2018

It’s been one week since the Edinburgh Festival Fringe began and Royal Conservatoire of Scotland’s MA Musical Theatre students took to the main stage at Assembly Hall to perform Dirty Rotten Scoundrels. As well as the main show, Scotland’s national conservatoire have teamed up with the American Music Theatre Project (AMTP) at Northwestern University, Illinois, to produce two moving musicals Legacy: A Mother’s Song and Legacy: The Book of Names.


Legacy: The Book of Names

Legacy:The Book Of Namesis a near-perfect tearjerker of a musical with an overabundance of incredible talent both on and off-stage. “A simple but staggering surprise of considerable beauty and talent, the only fault of this production is that it is not two-hours longer and in a room three times the size.”

Dirty Rotten Scoundrels

“Everything from the set decoration, to the music, to the quality of the acting is excellent on a par with anything you would pay £50 to see on the London stage.”
