Eastwood Entertainers are staging Avenue Q at Eastwood Park Theatre from May 21-25.

This laugh-out-loud musical tells the story of Princeton, a recent college graduate, who moves into a rundown apartment on Avenue Q, New York.

Princeton quickly discovers that, despite the residents seeming nice and normal, this is not your ordinary neighbourhood.

This adult-themed musical comedy combines the use of puppets and humans and follows a group of 20 somethings seeking their purpose in big city life.

The songs discuss various issues of modern life including racism and sexuality.

Due to issues raised in the show parental guidance is advised.

Eastwood Entertainers were formed 44 years ago by a group of young mothers with the purpose of performing pantomimes in a local church hall.

Over the years they have progressed to also performing musicals and plays.

In 1984 the club won the British One Act Play Festival and went on to perform the winning play in Los Angeles.

Some of the original members are still involved in club activities and some club members have also gone on to appear on the London Stage, film and television.

New members of the club are always welcome and anyone wishing to audition for membership should contact Derek Forrester on 0798 427 6797.

Tickets for Avenue Q are £15 for Tuesday, May 21, and Saturday, May 25, matinee; and £18 for all other performances and can be obtained by calling 0141 638 0692 or Eastwood Park Theatre Box Office.

Curtain up is at 7.30pm and 2.30pm for the Saturday matinee.
