A YOUNG Bearsden actress is set for a starring role on stage at one of Glasgow’s top venues.

Jeni Mullen (20) has been cast in the role of representing Germany in the Apollo Players showpiece production of Eurobeat – Almost Eurovision in Adelaides Centre, Glasgow from Wednesday, April 6 to Saturday, April 9.

Jeni who has starred in a variety of Apollo performances, is hoping to avoid the dreaded “nul points “ as part of a quartet that will be representing Germany in an utterly bizarre performance.

Eurobeat is a musical that taps into the legendary annual cheese-fest that is the Eurovision Song Contest - bizarre songs, dubious presenters and of course “nul points”.

Ten countries are represented including Russia, Greece, UK, Italy and Germany. No matter who wins the contest, a perfect evening of comedy entertainment is guaranteed.

Jeni, who is known for her athletic abilities as a distance runner, has also completed a sponsored run of a 12 mile section of the West Highland Way to raise funds for the Apollo Players.

The show will run for four days, with six productions, including two performances on the Friday evening (5.30pm and 8.30pm) and a Saturday matinee (2.30pm). The curtain goes up at 7.30pm and tickets priced £10 for adults and £5 for children are available from the Apollo Box Office by emailing apolloplayers@hotmail.com. Further details can be obtained from the website at www.apolloplayers.com

The Herald has teamed up with the Apollo Players to offer two lucky readers the chance to see a performance of Eurobeat - Almost Eurovision on Thursday evening or the Saturday matinee.
