Work has started on Toonspeak show 2019 with 50 young people writing and devising together each week!
We are super excited to announce it’s going to be a musical set in the 80’s, and the response by all the groups has been amazing, everyone is really excited. It was created via writing workshops we held with some of the young people past December with the new creative team.
The show is being developed through our Young Writers group every Monday and across our Theatre Makers groups that run Tuesday to Thursday evenings.
And what a team we have established!
Writer for Toonspeak’s sell out show ‘Ma Bit’ David Cosgrove is back along with Musical Director John Kielty who also worked on the show, except this time around it will be his Directorial debut. Toonspeak Associate Artist Steven Leach is working alongside John as Associate Director.
Choreographer Emma Jayne Park has joined our team for the first time and we are thrilled to have her working with us.
And Production Manager extraordinaire Jools Walls will be back, it wouldn’t be a Toonspeak production without her.
The show will be performed at Platform on the 26th and 27th July. Watch this space for more details!
