Panto season kicks off with Mother Goose

It’s (almost) the festive season once again — and EROS Musical Society are kicking off the Christmas panto season with a cracker of a show.

Yes, some of you will be thinking that Christmas comes earlier and earlier each year — but with Glasgow’s big pantomimes setting up stage from the end of November, it’s only fair that local boys and girls have their chance to spread comfort and joy ahead of time.

Forget the King’s or the Pavillion — musical director Lynne Fyfe and choreographer Sarah Booth are leading the way for East Renfrewshire thesps, along with a host of local youngsters involved in the EROS show.

For those of you longing for yuletide cheer (or those in need of it), the Clarkston-based am dram group has it in droves with Mother Goose.

Times are tough for Mother Goose, and the recession has left her without a penny — making it all the more difficult to live in Newton Mearns these days.

The queen of Gooseland sends Priscilla to lay some golden eggs to help Mother Goose pay her council tax — but the queen’s evil sister, Grizelda, has other plans.

Can Priscilla’s pricey produce save the day for Mother Goose and family — or will the panto baddie (cue those boos) scupper everyone’s Christmas cheer?

There’s only one way to find out, and that’s to grab a ticket for the Eastwood Park Show before Christmas has been and gone.

Mother Goose runs November 17-22 at 7.30pm, plus a 2.30pm Sat mat. Tickets are £12 (£10 for under 16s) from 577 4956 or www.eastrenfrewshire.gov.uk/boxoffice.
