Bill Kenwright’s Blood Brothers
Mon 16 Feb – 28 Feb 2009


Square Chapel Centre for the Arts, Halifax

Events in half-term week

A special session of its Write To Record and Youth Theatre workshops. They
have run at Square Chapel for a number of years and Youth Theatre is being
relaunched at Easter. The special sessions are targeting young people who
have never been to the workshops before. It involves the following:

Youth Theatre: Weekly workshops for 11 to 19 year olds who want to have
fun while learning serious dramatic techniques and acting methods. The
Youth Theatre aims to put on at least one production a year, so join now for a
chance to tread the boards at Square Chapel.

Write to Record: Continuing the successful workshops for aspiring
songwriters and musicians aged 13 to 19, this is the place to be for tips on
music making, from chord progressions to melodies. There’s also an
opportunity to produce digital and analogue recordings of your songs.

The theatre is also doing a behind the scenes tour for a group of young
people - they will find out about lighting, sound, selling tickets etc.

It will be releasing 100 free tickets for Don't Let the Pigeon Stay Up Late!
which is a children's show on Sunday 22 February. This will be publicised
through the local press only.

The week will coincide with the launch of the Young Friends and
Volunteers Schemes. The theatre already has regular volunteers and
Friends schemes. The new scheme for young people will hopefully attract
more youngsters to support it.

Hull Truck Theatre
Unfortunately, the week of the launch is the first of its dark weeks (the theatre
has a new building opening in late spring, supported by £4 million of lottery
funding through the Arts Council ). The first time the new scheme will be
implemented will be in the brand new theatre.

Carriageworks Theatre, Leeds

A free day of events on February 16 to launch ‘A Night Less Ordinary’.

The Carriageworks is giving the opportunity to 13-26 year olds to participate in
theatre workshops, see the hilarious Potted Pirates, meet the cast after the
performance and get a backstage tour – all for free!

The event will see workshops on making scenery, props and theatrical role
play to get an idea of what it’s like to work in a theatre.

Participants will then see Potted Pirates for free – with delightful double act
Daniel Clarkson and Jefferson Turner telling tall tales of the seven seas, from
Long John Silver to Blackbeard. They also promise a full-scale re-enactment
of the Spanish Armada!

And the completely free experience concludes with an opportunity to meet the
cast from Potted Pirates and a back stage tour of The Carriageworks.


Potted Pirates
16 February 2009
After the hilarious success of Potted Potter, delightful double act Dan and Jeff
return with this new compressed caper. In search of talking parrots and
mysterious buried treasure, they’re swapping wizards for walking the plank
and trading Hogwarts for the high seas.

Sir Gawain and the Green Knight
18-19 February 2009
When, one New Year’s Day, festivities at the court of King Arthur are
interrupted by the arrival of a mysterious Green Knight, and thrown into
confusion by the extraordinary challenge he lays down, nobody, least of all
the fearless Gawain, is prepared for the terrifying consequences of taking the
supernatural stranger at his word.




The Lamproom Barnsley

During the week commencing 16 February 2009 it is holding an 'Open
Theatre' week.

Between 10.00 am and 2.30 pm each day the Box Office and Theatre will be
open for young people interested in participating in the scheme to call in and
register their interest. It will take details of anyone who wishes to register and
put them on its database. This means that when they come to book tickets in
the future under the scheme the theatre does not have to obtain proof of age
again. If they wish to have a look around the theatre they will be able to do so,
but the week is aimed primarily at registering as many young people as
possible and advising them of the productions that they can attend for the
Spring/Summer season.
