A Glasgow theatre has issued a strongly-worded statement on social media in a bid to crackdown on anti-social behaviour during performances.
The King’s Theatre, which is currently hosting a run of smash-hit musical The Bodyguard, urged theatregoers to not attempt to ‘out-sing’ professionals on the stage.
The musical, based on the movie starring Whitney Houston, features a number of the late star’s hit songs including I Will Always Love You.
The King’s said that while it was looking forward to welcoming guests to see The Bodyguard, it “politely” asked that “consideration” was shown to fellow audience members during the performance.
In a statement posted on social media, the King’s said: “We all have a part to play in making sure the theatre is a fantastic experience for everyone and you can help by ensuring the professionals on stage are the only people entertaining us with their performances, and by being kind to our dedicated staff who are here to make sure everyone is safe.
“Anti-social behaviour towards our staff or other customers will not be tolerated.”
