THEY may not have been born at the time but members of Lanark drama group ICE are going back to the 1980s for their latest show.

Back to the 80s, the first show performed by a Lanark group at the new-look Memorial Hall, features music from the likes of Michael Jackson, The Bangles and Madonna.

The feel-good musical, set in an American high school, follows the story of teenager Corey Palmer who goes through his school year at William Ocean High and all the trials and tribulations that go along with it.

The story is told in a flashback and is told from the point of view of the older Corey who also acts as the narrator.

It stars Craig McCulloch as Corey with love interest Tiffany being played by Ruth Elliot. Andrew Shanks stars as ‘cool kid’ Michael while Iain Millar takes the part of ‘geeky kid’ Feargal.

Ron Waddell plays the part of the older Corey and with a huge supplement cast and dancers the ICE performers will delight the large crowds at the new look Memo.
