Gonzo Youth Theatre present Lost & Found on Friday 8th & Saturday 9th June 2018 at 7pm in Killygarry Community Centre, Cavan.
‘Lost and Found’, devised with Gonzo Youth Theatre and written by Calantha Forde, is a story of exploration and adventure. Our characters face many challenges, from the changes they go through as their friends grow up, to getting lost and feeling found again. Set in the inanimate world of stationery, we go on a journey of discovery with the items we spend most of our time with.
‘Lost and Found’ is the first public performance from our Gonzo Youth Theatre 11-13 year old group. We always do a private showcase with this age group and a public show with the older group, but this year, we decided that the 11-13’s were just as ready to perform and just as eager to show their skills to a wider audience. We started devising ‘Lost and Found’ in January, with the group creating different scenarios, discussing what themes they wanted to cover and exploring the way they see the world around them. A lot of hard work went into these workshops, providing a solid foundation for the type of show we wanted to make.
From those workshops, a script was born, and characters came to life. Each young person in the group has been able to create their character to such a high standard and have them inhabit the world we have made for them. We have been in full rehearsal mode since then and have spent every week working away to bring this show out into the open. Now is the time to show it, and we are excited and delighted to have you all here to see it and to share this experience with us.
