Creative youngsters wanted for Garrison performance
Creative youngsters are being invited to take part in a new performance project at the Garrison Theatre in Lerwick later this month.
Inspired by the story Where The Wild Things Are, Scottish Youth Theatre is needing young people aged eight to 16 to create and perform a production in five days.
Eight to 11-year-olds will work with a director, musical director and set designer.
Meanwhile 12 to 16-year-olds will develop their music and design skills, making giant puppets, taking part in a musical theatre workshop and being part of a junk yard orchestra and collaborating in the final performance.
The event, which runs from 19th to 23rd October, is part of Creative Scotland’s “Time to Shine” project and Shetland Arts and Shetland Islands Council’s youth services are also involved.
Scottish Youth Theatre associate director Karen McGrady-Parker said: “We’re really excited to be working with Shetland Arts trust, Shetland Island Council youth services and Shetland Youth Theatre to bring these workshops to the Garrison Theatre.
“It’s an important part of our ethos to work across Scotland and the Time to Shine project has allowed us to develop this eclectic programme of workshops that we believe will inspire young people to push their creativity.”
The free performance will be held on 23rd October. Application forms can be collected from Islesburgh Community Centre. No experience is necessary.
