On Saturday 12th April, Minerva Youth Theatre brought their latest show to the stage at the Kingsway Buildings, Chester. This show, continuing MYT’s trend of creating innovative work, was a collaboration with two local writers, Luke Moore and Rebecca Sowray Dixon. This collaboration sprung up from the Chester Culture Collective, a phenomenon that began on Twitter over a year ago.
The show, ‘Broken Tales and Twisted Stories’ was performed to friends, family and culture fans from across Chester in a matinee and evening performance and went down extremely well with its audience with comments being left such as,
‘Innovative and inclusive. Super performances’
‘Talented actors and a good story’
‘I enjoyed the originality of it. Everyone had a part to play’
‘Great variety in the pieces performed. Excellent opportunities for the cast. Well rehearsed’
All at Minerva Arts are delighted with the success of the production and are looking forward to the next challenge.
Both Minerva’s Senior Youth Theatre and BRAND NEW 7-11 group are open to new members after Easter. They are an open and inclusive group so if you love drama, want to build confidence or just want to have fun and make new friends- this is the group for you. They are also the only group in the area offering Arts Award, a nationally recognised qualification in the arts.
The Seniors group meets every Wednesday in term-time, 7-9pm at the Kingsway Buildings in Newton, part of the University of Chester. First session back is the 30th April.
The 7-11 group meets Saturdays in term-time, 10am-12 at the Cheshire Military Museum in Chester City Centre. First session back is the 26th April. With both groups, your first session is a free taster, so come along and give it a try!
