Remember their names

IMAGINE spotting the stars of tomorrow’s stage and screen while they’re still honing their craft.

Eastwood park theatre is this week presenting not one but two opportunities, as two nearby stage schools tread the boards for their summer shows.

First up, tonight, is Paisley-based PACE, staging the rather apt musical Fame. Head down to the East Ren performance space for a short and colourful journey to New York, where a group of students at the High School for Performing Arts are striving to make it big.

And if you’re fully booked tonight, then look no further than Saturday’s offering – a gleefully dark musical version of J.M Barrie’s Peter Pan.

Sticking closer to the original book than to the frothy Disney film, it’s Pan, his fiesty lost boys and the Darling family against the rest of Neverland – including evil mermaids and, of course, Captain Hook.

The matinee show also provides a double treat, as it opens with a junior students’ version of Peter Pan.

n Fame is on tonight (Thursday) at 7pm. Tickets £7 (£5 concession). Peter Pan performances on Saturday at 3.30pm and 7.30pm. Tickets prices vary according to show. To find out more, visit Eastwood Park Theatre.
