WEXFORD actress Sharon Clancy is returning to her roots after 11 years in London, with a starring role in the Irish premiere of Shout, billed as a nostalgic nod to the Swinging Sixties.

The show opens at the Tivoli Theatre in Dublin on July 4.

Since the original debuted off-Broadway in the mid-noughties, this hip musical comedy has sold out all over the US and UK.

The musical follows five young female subscribers to a fictional magazine called Shout!, 'the magazine for the modern woman', as they come of age during the liberating 1960s that made England swing.

Each of the five girls is denoted by a colour rather than a name - Sharon is the Yellow Girl (loud, fun-loving and obsessed with Paul McCartney), Orange Girl (married, with seemingly the perfect husband and life), Blue Girl (posh and wealthy, but on a voyage of self-discovery), Red Girl (naïve and geeky, totally lacking in confidence) and Green Girl (a good-time girl, with questionable morals!).
