ZYP: Unusual Theatre in Unusual Spaces

Mondays 5.45pm

Age range
11+ years

Free for Bright Sparks Members

Gone are the days that theatre happened in just theatres; now we have performances of Sweeney Todd in pie shops, Grimm Tales in deserted warehouses and the Railway Children in real railway stations. This is a theatre revolution and we want the young theatre makers of Manchester to be on the front line. We are taking youth theatre out of Z-arts and using strange locations and extraordinary settings. We will be telling stories old and new and using the wonderful landscape of Manchester as our backdrop; inspiration will come from the history of the city but young minds will give it a new voice.

Why ZYP? “Because I felt like I wanted to try out drama, and I knew that Z-arts was the place!”

Please note that from the 28th of January, no new members may attend these sessions until after Easter. This is due to the fact the group is working towards a performance of ‘Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe’. Those who are taking part in the performance should aim to commit to attending all sessions.
