Our last session was quite short but intensive. We worked on mime and mask work, using the masks provided by a grant from the Police and Crime Commissioner's Property Fund. The session concluded with a short showcase for family members on Thusday 18 October. We now take a break for the panto season and resume in February. Here are some photos from the mask work ...

After much hard work and preparation during the summer term, GADS Youth Theatre Group concluded for the summer with a showcase of their work.
On Sat 14 July at 7pm, YTG performed Richard George’s adaptation of Roald Dahl’s "James and the Giant Peach".
The performance was mainly for friends and family of YTG members, but was also be open to members of the general public.

The GADS Youth Theatre Group was founded by its first Director, Tom Morath, who has been an inspiration to so many in the YT Group and to other GADS members. Sadly (for us anyway) Tom has moved away from the area to a new job, but the show must go on and the group is now being led by Tosh McGregor. Please keep watching for news and use the link below to conact the Group for updates direct to your email inbox.
Sessions are charged at £3.00 pp and members must be prepared to arrive promptly for the start of each session at 7pm.
The sessions will focus on the many different aspects of theatre and offer exciting new experiences for young people interested in the dramatic arts in the area. We welcome those of all abilities, with or without experience.
We would also ask you to promote the youth theatre beyond the current membership to enable us to offer the sessions to as many young people as possible, and keep the group viable.
Thanks to a very generous donation from the Police and Crime Commissioner's Community Fund, we have been able to buy some professional theatre masks for the Youth Theatre Group.
Here is our local Police Community Support Officer, Dawn Lowerson, presenting the masks to the group.
