Rutherglen Reformer - - The Ticket - Jonathan Ged­des

This week the Ticket is look­ing ahead to the Easter hol­i­days.

There are sev­eral great shows com­ing up across the re­gion so here are four of the best to see.

Thurs­day, March 31 - Satur­day, April 2: Dis­ney’s Beauty and the Beast Jr, East Kil­bride Vil­lage Theatre

Com­mu­nity based drama group Ver­tigo Theatre will bring their ver­sion of Dis­ney clas­sic ‘Beauty and the Beast’ to East Kil­bride next week.

The brainy Belle is hop­ing to es­cape her small town life and her brutish suitor Gas­ton, only to be­come a pris­oner of the mys­te­ri­ous Beast in his cas­tle.

Ex­pect danc­ing dishes, men­ac­ing wolves and singing fur­ni­ture in Ver­tigo’s pro­duc­tion.

Sun­day, April 3: Kid’s Magic, East Kil­bride Arts Cen­tre, £5

Pop­u­lar ma­gi­cian Dou­glas Cameron has brought his ar­ray of tricks and il­lu­sions to sev­eral venues across South La­nark­shire over the years.

He is back with some as­ton­ish­ing an­tics and he will need some as­sis­tance from au­di­ence vol­un­teers to show his won­ders.

He may even turn one of them into a rab­bit (but not for long).

The show is suit­able for ages three and up­wards.

Wed­nes­day-Thurs­day, April 6-7: Moon­beam On A Cat’s Ear/Elves and the Shoe­maker, Ruther­glen Town Hall, 2.30pm both days

A dou­ble-header of pup­pet plays. ‘Moon­beam’ is about two chil­dren, a cat, a mouse and their ad­ven­ture when they steal the Moon from the sky. ‘Elves and the Shoe­mak­ers adapts the fa­mous Brothers Grimm story.

Both shows will use beau­ti­ful pup­pets to tell sto­ries that should cap­ture the imag­i­na­tion of young­sters.

Fri­day-Sun­day, April 157, The Gruf­falo’s Child, Hamil­ton Town House, £11

Fol­low­ing hot on the heels of ‘The Gruf­falo’s mon­strous suc­cess comes ‘The Gruf­falo’s Child’ - with at­ti­tude. Just how brave is she?

This show is based on the hugely pop­u­lar chil­dren’s book by Ju­lia Don­ald­son and Axel Sch­ef­fler.

It is all about how the Gruf­fallo’s child de­cides to dis­obey her dad and go out in the snow and should de­light

young­sters.

Lov­able The Gruf­falo’s Child will soon be in Hamil­ton
