Let us entertain you

Let us entertain you could be the theme tune to the line-up of shows being staged at Eastwood Park Theatre in the coming months.

Leah Macrae: My Big Fat Fabulous Diary

A varied programme for all ages is being staged by East Renfrewshire Culture and Leisure at the popular venue.

Well-known television and film actor, David Hayman - currently on our screens in the BBC drama series, Taboo - will be appearing at Eastwood Park Theatre in the thought-provoking play, The Cause of Thunder, on Monday March 6.

Hayman takes the starring role of Bob Cunningham, who has to deal with life's quandaries like politics, the No vote in the Scottish Referendum, Brexit, whether he should retire and the shock discovery that Ethel, the former love of his life is back in town after 20 years.

High-rise living gets the theatrical comedy-drama treatment in Hell's Hunner Acres, on Wednesday April 19.

This play takes us back to 1965, as the Cairns family closes the door on tenement life and catches a lift to their new home in a high-rise block of flats. This story explores the changing face of Glasgow's south side from the 60s onwards.

There's a dash of comedy with award-winning and incredibly funny Des McLean performing on Friday, April 7 and BBC's River City star, Leah MacRae has the opening night of her one-woman show, My Big Fat Fabulous Diary, on Thursday, March 2.

The audience at the show, Noel and Gertie, on Friday, March 17 can re-live two of the best-loved theatre performers, Noel Coward and Gertrude Lawrence. This features songs and scenes from shows including Private Lives and Blithe Spirit.

And for music fans there's a chance to hear the songs from some of the world's biggest pop bands as sound and lookalike tribute acts take to the Eastwood Park stage.

Abba Forever performs on Saturday, February 25; The Little Mix Experience on Sunday, April 9 and Supreme Queen on Thursday, April 13.

Anthony McReavy, chief executive of East Renfrewshire Culture and Leisure said: "Eastwood Park Theatre could be described as the entertainment world's best-kept secret in the west of Scotland.

"It's a fantastic venue and we have a hugely varied programme of shows and performances from professional theatre companies from all over the UK that people will enjoy.
