Actor John Barrowman will be honoured this coming July by the Royal Scottish Academy of Music and Drama in Glasgow - Scotland's national conservatoire for the Arts.

Barrowman, who was born in the city, is to be awarded with an honorary degree for his contribution to drama by the Academy in their annual graduation ceremony. He will become a "Doctor of Drama", alongside actor/writer/producer David MacLennan; other honorary degrees in "Doctor of Music" will be awarded to singers Moira Anderson and Judith Howarth.

The ceremony takes place on Tuesday 5th July at the Academy Concert Hall.


The actor also returns to the city this winter in Robinson Crusoe and the Caribbean Pirates at the SECC; he will appear alongside the Krankies, who also performed with him last year in Aladdin.
