THE INNOVATIVE YOUNG PEOPLE OF THORNBURY’S YOUR CALL THEATRE GROUP ARE PROUD TO PRESENT “PAGES6697
The innovative young people of Thornbury’s Your Call Theatre Group are proud to present “Pages”, written and co-directed by Castle School student Josh Moore. An ambitious young psychiatrist decides she will be the one to listen to the new story a convicted killer and psychopath has decided to present to the world. And she can’t say she wasn’t warned about the consequences... Unhindered by education targets and the demands of big cast musical theatre productions, Your Call provides opportunities for creative theatrical ventures to its teenage members. This is a small group which warmly encompasses all who give it a try. Several of Your Call’s members also perform with the Northavon Youth Theatre Company, while others can be seen on stage with Thornbury Musical Theatre Group. The group meets weekly on Friday evenings. Performances are on Saturday 19th September at 7.30, and Sunday 20th September at 2.30 pm, at Thornbury Methodist Church Hall, Castle Court. Tickets are priced £5, to include refreshments. (Play contains some difficult themes, so this show is not appropriate for young children.) Call Jill on 01454 413850, or email us at yourcalldramagroup@live.co.uk
