Update from Mr. Sands Youth Theatre

Having completed their NT Connections journey with an action-packed weekend of performances and workshops in the Lyric Theatre in Belfast in May, Mr. Sands Youth Theatre is getting into gear for another busy few months:  

Louis Lovett of Theatre Lovett enjoyed working with Mr. Sands so much in January that he has invited the youth theatre to join him for another workshop in The Mermaid Theatre this month!  If it's anything like the day they spent with him in January, they'll have a blast!  
 
Mr. Sands has also received Arts Council funding to make a short film. With a working title of Dancing In The Wind, the film takes its inspiration from the haunting Yeats' poem, To A Child Dancing In The Wind and has been devised by the members themselves. Shooting will take place in and around Bray in the next few months and to say they're excited doesn't even go near the mood in the group at present!  They can't wait!

Griese Youth Theatre - See me here. See me now.

6 years! It’s only 6 years! So why does it feel like a lifetime? Teenager, young adult, adolescent, whatever you call it… it makes no difference to me. I won’t be offended. One moment rushing to the end and the next willing it to last just a little longer. In the in-between, and almost all at once in heaven, in hell, in limbo. You cannot assail me. I’ll make it through.

See me here. See me now. is a programme of plays performed by Griese Youth Theatre.

GYT performances take place in Riverbank Arts Centre Newbridge as follows:

Friday June 29thBurying Your Brother in the Pavement by Jack Thorne.

Update from An Grianán Youth Theatre

An Grianán Youth Theatre presented gothic adventure The Wolves of Willoughby Chase as their feature production in April this year. Adapted by Ross Tunney from Joan Aiken’s novel, this comic melodrama told the story of two orphans trying to escape from the dreadful Miss Slighcarp and her band of villains. Directed by Nora Kavanagh, the cast of 13 included members from An Grianán’s intermediate and advanced groups and a live music score performed by guest cellist Paul Gillespie (who enjoyed his experience so much that he has now officially joined the youth theatre!).

Next on the agenda for An Grianán Youth Theatre is a trip to Glenveagh National Park to perform monologues for Cruinniú na nÓG, Ireland’s new national day of creativity for children and young people on Sat 23 June.

An Grianán will also be collaborating on July’s Earagail Arts Festival commission The Selkie alongside members of Amharclann Gaoth Dobhair Youth Theatre, the Inishowen Gospel Choir and Banyan Theatre Company.
