If ever a Wiz there was...Eastwood Park Theatre welcomes home Giffnock man Paul Harper-Swan with a new take on a classic Hollywood musical.

Paul’s Pure Amazing Wizard of Oz is a story told in the Glasgow vernacular.

Paul was raised in Giffnock and attended St Ninian’s as a boy.

He told The Extra: “For Oz, I wanted to add another layer to the piece so I gave it a Glesga treatment and it works.

“There’s something for everyone in the show, including some chart hits. The characters differ, too. For example, the tin man is the tin wumman.”

Show runs Monday-Sunday (December 15-21) at 10am, 1pm and 7.30pm.

Tickets are £13 (£11) and students £9.
