Madness . . . they call it madness

SOUTHSIDE theatre group Park Players are donning their baggy trousers for their annual summer show this week.

The youth theatre is staging Madness musical Our House at Giffnock’s Park church, and it promises to be an all-singing, all-dancing affair.

The story follows birthday boy Joe Casey, a 16-year-old out to impress a date.

When Joe breaks into a London building site owned by developer Mr Pressman, the police turn up and the boy’s life splits in two – the good Joe, who turns himself in and the bad Joe, who flees.

So far, so Sliding Doors, as the cast (and the audience) explore what lies ahead for Joe if he chooses a life of petty crime – and what happens when the same developer plans to demolish the street our hero grew up on.

Park Players features a wealth of secondary school-aged talent, and the youngsters have been involved in running the group since it was reestablished in 2005.

Our House runs at the Giffnock church on July 12-13, 7pm, and tickets are just £6 from .
