PUPILS at a Knightswood primary school were treated to an exciting show recently.

Over 150 primary one and three pupils from Corpus Christi Primary enjoyed two performances of Cloud Man.

It was performed by Samuel Jameson – with puppets – and created by Scottish company Constellation Points.

The pupils were joined by Carol Monaghan, MP for Glasgow North West, who praised the “fantastic production”.

Clydebank Post: Ms Monaghan said: “I was delighted to join the children at Corpus Christi Primary to watch Cloud Man.

“This production by the National Theatre of Scotland and Imaginate serves as a wonderful example of the benefits to young children of exposure to the arts.

“Not only are the children able to really immerse themselves in such inventive productions, but their young minds are creatively stimulated by the storytelling on display on stage.

“To witness the children’s spontaneous laughter and natural interaction with the production was a lovely demonstration of the power of theatre to connect with very young children.”

“I wish the Cloud Man cast and crew all the best with the rest of their tour and thank them for inviting me to come along and watch this fantastic production.”

Cloud Man tells the story of Claude who loves clouds and dreams one day of seeing a Cloud Man.

Cloud Men are described as “very rare, very shy, and very, very hard to find”.

Louise White, principal teacher at Corpus Christi Primary, said: “It was a wonderful, mesmerising experience - our pupils loved it!”

Jackie Wylie, artistic director & chief executive, National Theatre of Scotland added: "It was a total joy experiencing Constellation Points's Cloud Man alongside this brilliantly enthusiastic audience at Corpus Christi Primary School.

“The Theatre in Schools Scotland programme holds a special place in the hearts of everyone at National Theatre of Scotland as it does with our partners Imaginate, as we all passionately believe in the potential transformative power of theatre in young people’s lives. We were delighted that Carol Monaghan MP could join us.”
