On May 3rd 2014 SYT return to Bookfest for a series of street theatre performances based on the world of Roald Dahl. The Witches find themselves in a spot of bother when they try to kidnap a modern-day teen, Fantastic Mr Fox defends his friends the badgers in court and The Twits .... well, the less we say about the gruesome, revolting twits, the better!
SYT will be in the square in Shrewsbury at 1pm and 2pm. Here are a few pictures from our rehearsal process, where we worked with puppet maker Garry Jones to create a BFG puppet for our work. Be sure to look out for Sophie and the BFG on the day!
Congrats everyone on a fantastic production of the Recruiting Officer. After the Easter break, it's back to normal for SYT to work on smaller projects, play games, learn the trade and have fun.
Next years production will be The Playboy of the Western World
Shrewsbury Youth Theatre, SYT, was established in 1993 to provide a professionally run youth theatre company for Shrewsbury. It now works with students from across Shropshire. SYT prides itself on having a committee of senior student members who are elected on an annual basis as SYTs decision making body.
SYT provides theatre activities for children and young adults aged 8 to 20 years. These range from basic training in theatre skills, street theatre and devising projects, to large scale performances staged at Shrewsbury's Theatre Severn.
