Glasgow Academy Les Mis Muskets

Here at HANDS ON we love to help theatre companies of all sizes put on the best performance they can. That's why we are producing handy "Shopping Lists" for our favourite shows, and we are starting with the wonderful (and heavily armed) Les Miserables.

Knives for Aida


Two groups have approached Hands On this year for assistance with their productions of"Aida".
Theatre South Productions is putting on the show from 6th March - pop along to see it (and our knives) at Eastwood Theatre.
Motherwell College is performing the show in the last week of March and requires staging from us to set the scene.

HANDS ON has many more useful props for creating the right look and feel. Are you thinking of putting on Tony Roper's "The Steamie" East Kilbride Rep Theatre got the real deal from us. Read the full story here.
