AN office worker is causing a ‘Locomotion’ as she prepares for a charity musical about the glittering career of pop princess Kylie Minogue.

Thespian Sharon Taylor, 49, who works at Pottery Street-based Childcare Management, is preparing to take to the stage at the Mitchell Theatre in Glasgow on Friday in new show ‘Your Disco Needs You’.

All proceeds from the five performances of the musical, which runs until Sunday, will be donated to Macmillan Cancer Support, to coincide with Breast Cancer Awareness Week.

Sharon is one of eight main characters in the Kylie tribute, which has gained the support of the Australian singer herself, and her choreographer Tim Noble, who taught Sharon and the other performers.

Sharon hopes Kylie fans in Inverclyde will go along and show their support at one of the performances.

She said: “The show is really quite funny and as long as it makes a profit I’ll be happy. All proceeds will go to cancer charities, including Macmillan.

“My character is called Jan and leads a bit of a double life with her husband. Her escape is going to these wee dance classes every week and she sets her sights on someone else.

“Kylie’s own choreographer Tim Noble has been helping and has brought a lot of her dance moves into our show — he’s been brilliant.” As well as raising money for worthy causes, organisers hope the show will also help save lives.

Kylie herself battled breast cancer in 2005 and ‘Your Disco Needs You’ is a tribute to the singer and named after one of her lesser known singles.

The musical is also in support of show creator Neet Neilson, a cancer survivor who has had a double mastectomy.

Sharon explained: “The woman who has written the musical has herself beaten cancer and is a huge Kylie fan.

“She listened to her whole back catalogue throughout her treatment and couldn’t believe it when she found out nobody had written anything about her before.

“The show is a bit of light-hearted fun, poignant but also plain old stage fantasy.”
