Make A Hoo With Sita Pieraccini

Paisley Arts Centre

7.30pm

The shimmering heat of tropical hills, and the purring and humming of plains set the scene for a young woman’s journey as she strives to reconnect with her identity and the world in which she lives. Caught in an elaborate game of call and response with a shape-shifting being which only comes to life at night, the woman struggles to find her echo in a world of repetition.

Fred Morrison in Concert Paisley Arts Centre

7.30pm

£10 (£8 conc) + bkg fee*

One of Celtic music’s most profoundly skilled and audaciously inventive exponents, Scottish piper Fred Morrison is justly famed for his passionately expressive style. This is rooted in the Gaelic traditions of his father’s native South Uist, and enriched by influences from far and wide, which has seen him dubbed “the Jimi Hendrix of the pipes”. He has featured in the seminal Scottish bands Clan Alba and Capercaillie, and is also a recordbreaking champion on the competitive piping circuit. *see page 1 for details of our booking fees

£16 (£14 conc) + bkg fee* A celebration with rehearsed reading and live band Suitable for ages 14+

Get ready to roar for the golden anniversary of the finest silver ever lifted. If you know the history, don’t just remember it, relive it!

The Celticade stretched from the Campsie Fells to the Pyrenees, rolling like a green carpet across Europe. Those who couldn’t afford the plane travelled on slow boats and long-distance lorries, in battered vans and buses, on rusty bikes and blistered feet, in used cars and trains that never ran on time. A full cast of ten, plus live band, recreate the humour, passion and occasional calamity that accompanied a Glasgow & District XI showing Europe’s finest how the beautiful game should be played.

£12.00 (Family Saver £44, Groups 10+ £9, Adult & Babe £14) + bkg fee* Join Anya, Kevin and Gary on their quest to find all the lost keys under the sea, while the Funsters discover a barrier reef and Bonzo, the lovable Sea Dog, battles a shark! Familiar favourites like ‘Over the Irish Sea’ and ‘Hole at the Bottom of the Sea’ and ‘Eely Ally Oh ‘ as well as brand new songs, will entertain and enthral kids of all ages—from nought to ninety! Dress up, join in the fun and come dressed as sea creature, King Neptune or a Mermaid and have a Whale of a time! There will even be the chance for some lucky people to help out on stage too!

50-somethings Rob and Cathy are looking forward to reclaiming their own lives now that their daughter Nicola is grown-up and settled; but looming over them is a threat that could rip their future apart.

CATS (Critics Award for Theatre in Scotland) Nominated: Best New Play and Best Male Actor, 2016.  ‘relaxed’ performance is designed A to provide a less formal, more supportive environment for people who might be anxious about attending the theatre. The show is the same, but sound and lighting levels are adjusted, and people can move about the auditorium during the performance or go to a separate quiet space if they need to.

Waves Paisley Arts Centre 7.30pm £10 (£6 conc) + bkg fee* Suitable for ages 8+

Waves tells the story of the unofficial history of the invention of the Butterfly stroke. It is a solo theatre work written and performed by Alice Mary Cooper. Waves is the amazing tale of Elizabeth Moncello and how, growing up on Gabo Island (Australia) in the 1930’s, she employed sea creatures to teach her how to swim. With the help of fish, penguins and amphibian friends, Liz, the daughter of immigrants, developed ‘the Dolphin,’ known to the world as the Butterfly.

**** The Herald

@Cristina Todaro

book online www.renfrewshire.gov.uk/onlinebooking

‘Cooper’s mischievous, affectionate story-telling is a joy in itself, but the sincerity she brings to honouring Moncello makes her performance an inspiring gift to her 8+ audiences.’
