Edinburgh Festival proves success for local actor
September 7, 2010 by Lyndon
The Edinburgh Festival proved a huge triumph for a local Rutherglen actor who was awarded the top acting accolade at the festival. Scott Kyle, from Rutherglen, beat off stiff competition and was awarded the best actor award by Stage Magazine which is a much coveted award at the festival. The competition was stiff, but Kyle won the top prize for his role in ‘Singin’ I’m No an Billy, He’s a Tim’. He celebrated his award, presented to him the evening before his final performance of the festival, and was still feeling the effects as he took to the stage for the final time. In his celebrated role, he plays a Glasgow Ranger’s mad fan, Billy, although Kyle discovered it was not as easy to perform the part after a night of jubilant celebrations.
The world famous Edinburgh festival is a very busy time for print companies offering poster, flyer and banner printing as many shows go all out to stand out from the crowd, and Kyle hopes that the success of the play will help raise interest in other performances that his production company is running. He may also be calling on companies offering poster printing in Edinburgh as the production company changes their advertising posters to incorporate the positive message that the ‘Billy and Tim’ show practically sold out every show at the Edinburgh Festival which is a massive pull to audiences and a huge achievement at an event with around 2500 shows.
