May News

Off the Ground would like to say a huge congratulations to our Monday youth theatre group members, whose performance of Our World on Sunday 8th May as part of PhysicalFest’s YoungFest was simply fantastic. The feedback has only been positive for the two sell-out shows. If these talented youngsters are anything to go by, then the future is bright for Off the Ground.

 

If you’re reading this and wondering where the April edition to our ‘Latest News’ section is, then have no fear, you haven’t missed it, there simply wasn’t one. Apologies for this, but the company have been so caught up in the excitement of the vast number of projects we are lining up that April seemed to fly past in a blur!

 

It is May now, however, and time to fill everybody in on all the stuff you can look forward to in the coming months.

 

First is OTG’s performance Creature, as part of Tmesis Theatre’s internationally-renowned PhysicalFest. The show takes place on

 

THURSDAY 26th MAY, 8pm

 

It is on for one night only at the Unity Theatre in Liverpool. Tickets are only available from the Unity Theatre website. It is a devised movement piece which penetrates to the very core of what it is to be sentient, communicative beings.

 

Away from this we are still exploring the possibility of a mini-tour for the Monday evening youth theatre’s performance Our World. The aim is to perform the piece to a number of local youth theatres, including our own Wednesday and Thursday groups.

 

After this we are full steam ahead into our Summer youth theatre production of Alice in Wonderland. This production will be a collaborative effort from all three youth theatre groups at Off the Ground, the first time such an undertaking has occurred in a long, long time. The show itself will be an interactive promenade performance; inviting audience members to join the madness as they follow Alice down the rabbit-hole and become a part of her adventures. Come along, and see how your choices as an audience could shape the fate of Wonderland…

The performances will take place on:

 

THURSDAY 30th JUNE

FRIDAY 1st JULY

SATURDAY 2nd JULY

With multiple showings each evening.

 

Once this has finished there’s no time to lose and it will be straight into rehearsals for the Summer touring production of Zorro. The casting is completed, our venues and dates have all been confirmed, and can be found on the right-hand side of our homepage.

 

If you would like to purchase tickets for any one of our Summer shows, they are available here.

 

In other news, our tutors page has been updated and now includes a profile for our Monday group Lead Tutor, Grace Goulding.

 

Youth theatre fees can still be paid online by clicking here. We are now into the Summer term, so anybody with payments outstanding from the Spring or Autumn terms of this academic year will be duly notified.
