Winding down for the summer break, we’ve nevertheless got a couple of treats for you, in the form of some massive cinema classics, the return of the ever popular Harlequin Youth Theatre and a brand new exhibition of some of the best new talent from around Scotland in our gallery.
When Evan Goldman’s parents get divorced and he’s forced to move from New York to a small town in Indiana, all he wants is to make friends and survive the school year. Easier said than done. The star quarterback is threatening to ruin his life and his only friend, Patrice, won’t talk to him. The school freak sees an opportunity for blackmail and someone is spreading the nastiest rumours. With an unforgettable rock score from Tony Award-winning composer Jason Robert Brown, 13 is a hilarious, high-energy musical for all ages about discovering that cool is where you find it, and sometimes where you least expect it.
Wednesday 8– Saturday 11 June | 7.30pm + 2.30pm Saturday matinee
June’s also a chance for Playtime, an end-of-term showcase for all our fabulously talented East Renfrewshire Youth Theatre groups. With pieces developed from their weekly drama classes and shaped with direction from their tutors– all professional theatre-makers– our classes from Netherlee, Barrhead, Clarkston, Fairweather and Williamwood all take to the stage for an afternoon of unique entertainment!
Saturday 18 June | 2 pm

This month we continue our Big Screen Sundays with a true cinema classic for all the family, The Wizard of Oz. Over 70 years old and still just as magical, The Wizard of Oz tells the story of Kansas farm-girl Dorothy Gale (Judy Garland) who is one day swept up in a mysterious tornado and swiftly deposited in the wonderfully disconbobulating land of Oz, where she meets various friends and foes on her journey to find the elusive wizard, the only person who might be able to get her home.
Sunday 12 June | 1pm
And on Monday, pop in for the most epic of romances with Hollywood classic Gone With The Wind. Against the turbulent backdrop of the American Civil War, scheming and manipulative Scarlett O’Hara carries on a tempestuous love affair with the roughish Rhett Butler. As always, enjoy a complimentary tea or coffee with the movie.
Monday 13 June | 11am
From Friday 3rd June to Wednesday the 29th, EPT’s gallery will be hosting a brilliant new exhibition by a range of emerging new talents from the west of Scotland.
