The performances included extracts from popular shows including Blood Brothers, Guys and Dolls and Top Girls. Luke Hough took an amusing extract from You’re a Good Man Charlie Brown playing a socially awkward schoolboy daring to talk to a girl across the canteen but eventually his courage deserts him and he has to resort to hiding his head in a lunch box! William Cohen in The New Boy was a student at parents’ evening, finding a way of passing the time with his own unique assessment of the grownups. A brand new piece was written by one of the group. Julia Hebron imagined a meeting between God and the devil. God (Chloe Early) just wanted to keep peace on earth but the devil,played by the author, was intent on causing mischievous havoc. All the pieces were directed by Youth Theatre Leaders Emma Gutteridge and Alex Booth, both currently studying at the University of Winchester.
Whilst this season’s programme has been completed, the Chesil Youth Theatre Seniors will be resuming in the autumn, meeting on Monday evenings from September 2013.
