December News


The festive season is upon us and Off the Ground would like to wish all of our supporters the happiest of holidays.

An abundance of mince pies and wetter weather have not stopped the hard work of our youth theatre, who are working hard toward a number of exciting projects.

Our Monday group have been developing a number of crucial theatrical skills this term, and will be showcasing what they have learned at a lighthearted cabaret evening:


Monday 14th December – 7:30pm – Comedy Cabaret Evening


The event will be held at Calday Grange Grammar School Drama Studio. It is free to attend, so come on down and show your support for the fantastic next generation of Off the Ground.


Looking ahead to the New Year, the Wednesday group are in rehearsals for Titus Andronicus, which will take place at Heswall Hall between the 4-6th February. To keep up with the latest news and ticket information surrounding this show, be sure to check back here in the coming weeks. If the rehearsals so far are any indicator, then it is a show you definitely won’t want to miss.


Our Thursday group are working toward putting their excellent training this term to practice, in a physical theatre piece that will be performed next year, while performances at the 2016 YoungFest and PhysicalFest in Liverpool are still to come. Our touring Summer production of Zorro is also in development. As ever, keep up to date with the company online for details.

November News

The cold and rainy Autumn nights are well upon us, but fortunately they held off just long enough for our youth theatre's production of If You Go Down to the Woods Tonight... over Hallowe'en. The performances went well and were very well received. Audiences left deeply disturbed, the overriding feedback being;


'Well, I wasn't expecting that.'  


That's all done with now however, and looking forward there are plenty of excellent productions still to come. Our Monday group are working hard towards their Comedy Cabaret night, to showcase some of the skills they have been learning this term. Performances at the 2016 YoungFest have been confirmed for this group as well, while our older groups will be taking part in PhysicalFest in Liverpool in 2016. 


We are in the development stages of a number of other exciting projects, so keep checking in here to find out more about them as they are announced. 


Our Summer touring production of Zorro is still in its writing phase, and is progressing very well indeed. 


Off the Ground now also has a blog, sharing stories of Summer tours, past events in OTG history and all things strange, heartfelt and entertaining. To follow the blog, click here.

The Year Ahead

It's the start of a new season for Off the Ground, and this promises to be one of the most exciting yet!

We kick off a packed year of productions at the end of October with the Youth Theatre's creepy promenade piece, If You Go Down to the Woods Tonight... Promising to be truly terrifying, tickets are available online now for the shows at Royden Park on October 30th and 31st.

In the build-up to Christmas our younger group will be devising and producing their own Comedy Cabaret evening. A showcase of sketches, skills and variety acts, this one is set to be a laugh-a-minute show for the whole family to enjoy. Keep one eye on the website for ticket news regarding this show when it becomes available.

Looking to Christmas and beyond, there are plenty of exciting projects currently being discussed with both the Youth Theatre and professional contingents of Off the Ground, including performances at YoungFest and PhysicalFest in Liverpool in 2016. 

The 2016 Summer tour is currently being written and planned. It will be an adaptation of Zorro, and promises to be a cracker!
