Mansfield Drama Festival 2019 details revealed

Listed Under: News

This year's Mansfield Drama Festival will take place on the morning of Sunday 31 March at the Create Theatre in Mansfield.

It will begin at 9.15am with the Junior Youth Theatre, Junior Drama 2 groups and the Intermediate Musical Theatre.

At around 10.15am the Intermediate Drama and Intermediate Youth Theatre will perform with the Senior Youth Theatre groups at 11.00am approximately. 

The Junior and Intermediate groups are performing scripts from the following plays:

How to Spot an Alien by Georgia Christou

The Midnight Gang by David Walliams (adapted by Carrie Bird)

The Heritage by Dafydd James 

The Odyssey by David Calcutt

The Senior Youth Theatre groups have devised pieces of theatre as part of the Toolbox Project 2019.

One piece looks at two groups of students from two rival schools who compete for a chance to travel to America on a three month apprenticeship programme.

The other begins with the crash of an aeroplane on its way from Johannesburg to Harare in Zimbabwe and then flashes back to three groups as they prepare to take the flight. 

The morning looks to be a really great display of performances of talented young people. 

There will also be a dress rehearsal on the late afternoon/evening of Saturday 30 March at Pond Hills Lane Community Centre beginning at 5.00pm with the Juniors and finishing at around 7.00pm.

A small charge of £2.00 will be collected on the door to pay for the hire of the hall.

Children and young people under 25 will be free!

You can find Mansfield's Create Theatre at the NG18 5BH postcode.
