Them Beatles return from international dates for tribute show in Eastwood Park Theatre

23 04 2012

|  Friday 27 April, 7.30pm

An internationally acclaimed Scots tribute band, who have just returned from a two month residency in Johannesburg, are bringing their Beatles extravaganza back to Eastwood Park Theatre on Friday 27 April. Them Beatles are tipped to make a massive breakthrough in 2012, including a tour of Canada in the summer followed by dates in New Zealand and Australia as well as being invited to play at the prestigious International Beatles Festival in Liverpool.

Them Beatles are returning to Eastwood Park Theatre due to popular demand, after wowing a sold out audience last year with their energetic and incredibly authentic review of the Fab Four. The band are to recreate the entire career of The Beatles live on stage in what promises to be a must for all Beatles fans, young and old. The band enjoyed many successes in 2011 including theatre, festival and TV appearances home and abroad. The show will feature songs and costumes from the height of Beatlemania, right through to the famed ‘rooftop’ gig just before the Beatles split.

The band are Clark Gilmour (25, John Lennon), Joe Kane (32, Paul McCartney), Craig McGown (24, George Harrison) and Grahame Critcher (33, Ringo Starr) and hail from Glasgow and Lanarkshire.

The band are excited to be back playing in the UK over the coming months. Clark said: “We have just returned from playing at the prestigious Lyric Theatre in Johannesburg where we spent two months entertaining thousands of fans. It was an amazing experience for us and we received a lot of fantastic press reviews and media interest. We have been working really hard producing our show that tells the chronological story of The Beatles and we hope the people of Renfrewshire will come along and join us in what will be a great night!”

Craig added: “Coming back home to the UK is great for us, and we hope as many people come out to see us at Eastwood Park. Last year was an incredible journey for us and we have even more planned for 2012.”

The much in demand act have played around the UK, appeared at Bergenfest music festival in Norway and have been signed up by Showtime Australia to take their “Beatlemania on Tour” show around the world, including tours of Canada, South Africa and Australia. The band have also attracted celebrity fans in Belle and Sebastian who invited them to play in front of 5000 fans at their festival, All Tomorrow’s Parties.

The invitation to play at the International Beatles Festival is a major feather in the cap of the band, which will see the cream of tribute acts from across the globe descend on the home city of John, Paul, George and Ringo for a week of festivities, live performances and exhibitions. Them Beatles are set to perform the album “Rubber Soul” in its entirety on the massive outdoor stage as well as some more intimate performances across the city including the famous Cavern Club throughout the week. This year is a particularly special one for the festival as it marks the beginning of the official 50th anniversary celebrations. Ringo joined the band in 1962, completing the line up which went on to become the Fab Four. The rest, as they say, is history.

Described as one of the most authentic and accurate representations of The Beatles, the band feature handmade costumes that exactly replicate those worn by the “Fab Four”, the visual aspect of their performance being just as important as the exact sound that changed music forever in the sixties.

Joe said: “Things have really taken off for us last year and we have developed the show further for 2012. We hope the show will capture the imagination of the audience and give people a live concert experience of the story everyone is so familiar with.”

Grahame, continued: “Everywhere we have played, we’ve had an amazing response with people dancing in the aisles and singing along to all the songs. We’ve stepped it up big time this year with this new production and we really hope to transport the crowd back to the magic of The Beatles in every way we can.”

The performance will contain songs from The Beatles earliest live performances featuring songs, played on authentic instruments as used by the band, from every album they recorded, spanning the illustrious career of the ‘Fab Four’ and feature costumes reflecting the progress of the best band in history.

Tickets are £14 or £12 for concessions and are available directly from the box office online or by telephone on 0141 577 4970





Die Fledermaus interview: Opera Della Luna’s Jeff Clarke

22 04 2011

Could there be a more a more spectacular ending to our Spring season? Next Saturday EPT are excited to welcome the wonderful lunatics of Opera Della Luna and their magical re-imagining of Strauss’ most famous operetta Die Fledermaus.

Check out this excerpt from Nicola Lisle’s Oxford Times interview with OdL’s artistic director Jeff Clarke, as he talks about the ideas behind the company’s sparkling contemporary re-working, and how he came to love the oft-performed operetta.

“Revenge, mistaken identity and marital infidelity — these are the essential ingredients of many a play and opera. But few, arguably, have served them up with such liberal helpings of wit and sparkle as Johann Strauss, and Die Fledermaus remains as popular now as when it was first produced in Vienna in 1874.

Opera della Luna’s ensemble version… captures all that effervescence but with a fresh, contemporary feel, including a new translation by the company’s founder and artistic director, Jeff Clarke, and new musical arrangements by Tony Britten.

‘We decided to make Eisenstein an investment banker, and make his crime being caught with drugs,’ explains Jeff. ‘He is a heavy drinker so is sent to a rehab clinic, instead of going to prison as in the original, where his crime was supposed to be insulting a policeman, which always seemed a bit far-fetched to me. Adele is the Eisensteins’ cleaner, not their maid, but otherwise the story still works fine. We made it Halloween because it tied in with the bat.’

The new translation helps to emphasise the modern feel.

‘It gives a distinct OdL style to our work. It also means the piece could say what I wanted it to say, and make it work for our size and our ideas. And it’s exciting to do something new!’

Any anxieties about the production were soon dispelled when the opening season received rave reviews from both audience and press.

‘We were the critics’ choice in Opera Now, and their reviewer Robert Thickness wrote most enthusiastically about the show. There were many other rave local reviews, too. When we played Didcot last year a member of the audience wrote in the comments book: ‘At last! Operetta for the under 40s’.'”
