Romeo and Juliet (Youth Theatre)

This abridged version of history’s greatest love story is presented by the Gatehouse Youth Theatre. Don’t miss the romance, the drama, the poison, the balcony and the whole tragic twisting love story, played out in an easy-to-access way by our incredibly talented youngsters.

Skunk

A surreal, dreamlike, and hilarious play exploring the pressures and transformations that happen to teenagers as they grow up.
Otto’s parents have big plans for him. His mum thinks he’s ‘Cambridge material’. His dad wants him to play for Arsenal. It’s a lot of pressure, but Otto has it under control.
Until one morning, when Otto wakes up feeling peculiar . . . discovering he’s been transformed into a skunk.
Inspired by Kafka’s novella The Metamorphosis, Zawe Ashton’s ‘Skunk’ was first performed at Soho Theatre, produced by the National Youth Theatre. This is the first performance of our Skills group who have been exploring physical theatre this year and can’t wait to perform this brilliant show. Smells like teen spirit.

Songs For A New World

It’s about one moment.

It’s about hitting the wall and having to make a choice – take a stand . . . or turn around and go back. These are the stories and characters of today, the ‘Songs For A New World’. The first musical from Tony Award-winner Jason Robert Brown (Parade, The Last 5 Years, 13), this moving collection of powerful songs examines life, love and the choices we make.

The Gatehouse Youth Theatre group present an ensemble cast and a driving, exquisitely-crafted score, running the variety of today’s popular music.
‘Songs For A New World’ is a show that will make you laugh and make you cry.

But one thing’s for sure . . . you’ll leave the theatre ready to face the world again.
