A Double-Bill of Theatre for Families and Young People
County Carlow Youth Theatre presents two for the price of one, a night of theatre for families and young people. First up is ‘In Quest of a Play’ by Geraldine O’Neill, originally devised with Physically Phishy Youth Theatre, followed by ’The Adventures of the Brothers Grimm’ by John Morton.
What happens when you leave a bunch of children alone in a drama workshop? Do they sit there twiddling their thumbs? Scroll on their phones? No, they make up and perform an epic adventure play. Join our gang as they go ‘in quest of a play.’
The brother Grimm collected some of our most beloved fairytales: Cinderella, Snow White, Jack and the Beanstalk. But have we ever heard their story! Come see one version, in this irreverent production where the Brothers Grimm come face to face with their characters.
The double bill has a cast of 36 young people from all around Carlow, who have put together two very entertaining productions.
Anna Galligan of CCYT says: “After a highly successful double-bill last year, the young people are really looking forward to crossing the stage of VISUAL this year. It is so exciting to put on a production for the public. We gratefully acknowledge the support of County Carlow Arts Office in giving the young people this amazing opportunity. Youth Theatre is a welcoming space for all young people, whether they just want to try something different, meet new people or learn how about theatre and how to act.
