Eastwood Park Theatre has a whole host of entertainment lined up this Easter, from puppet animation to a free teen drama workshop.

The theatre is part of this year’s hugely popular Puppet Animation Festival, with shows and activities popping up before and during the Easter break.

Performances include The Steadfast Tin Soldier, the tale of a one-legged soldier who fell in love with a paper dancer on Sunday, March 25, while The Wonderful World of Lapin show on Sunday, April 1 is narrated in English with puppets speaking simple French sentences.

The Scottish Theatre Producers presents Grandad and Me on March 31, a show that focuses on loss, longing and the treasures of memory and imagination.

A free taster teen drama workshop for 12-16 year olds, hosted by tutor Corrie McKendrick from the Royal Conservatoire Scotland and Scottish Youth Theatre, will take central stage at the Carmichael Hall.

Tutor Corrie said: “I’m really excited that we are looking to engage a new group of young people with theatre in the East Renfrewshire area, as part of its Easter Week activities. I think it’s really important that everyone has access to a creative outlet, whatever that may be, and drama offers so much.

“It can be fun or about making people laugh, it can be a way of telling stories or finding answers and it can also be a career path, a way to build confidence, make new friends or fill up spare time.”
