NEWS: CELEBRATE MOTHER’S DAY AND INTERNATIONAL WOMEN’S DAY AT EASTWOOD PARK THEATRE

Eastwood Park Theatre has lined up three special shows of music, comedy and dance, to celebrate International Women’s Day (8 March) and Mother’s Day (11 March).

Catch big band music with Back to Bacharach on 8 March, comedy with Gary Lamont: Dropping the Soap on 9 March and dance production Virago on 10 March.

Jude Smith from East Renfrewshire Culture and Leisure said: “There is something on offer for everyone during our three day celebration, from light-hearted comedy with Gary Lamont to the thought-provoking and inspiring Virago.

“A small donation from ticket sales from the big band show Back to Bacharach will also be donated to a very important charity, Breast Cancer Now, which helps hundreds of women across the UK.”

A live ten piece band, three of the finest west end singers and Burt Bacharach’s famous hits – Back to Bacharach on 8 March is sure to be a huge hit. Eastwood Park presents the only Glasgow date of the show, featuring the work of the most accomplished popular composers of the 20th Century. This show is jam packed with big songs including I Say a Little Prayer for You, Walk on By and What’s New Pussycat.

Comedy fans are in for a treat when former River City star and Glasgow southsider Gary Lamont comes back to his roots with his show Gary Lamont: Dropping the Soap on Friday 9 March. Look out for guest stars Claire from Steps, Martine McCutcheon and Graham Norton who will be featured along the way…

Celebrate International Women’s Day with a dance-digital solo production on Saturday 10 March. Virago is a vibrant, compelling and brave show, exploring light versus dark and the real versus fairytale versions of female existence. Virago, which means ‘female warrior’ in Latin, is both a protest and a celebration – come and be part of the revolution.
