Never let Miss do show-and-tell!

Details

Miss’ granddad’s wild invention takes her and her class back to the Dark Ages; there they help rescue a dragon from the Knights of Camelot. When they try to get home, they travel to the future, where their different skills help save the whole world. A lonely robot offers to send them home, although Miss has left her heart in Camelot…

After 2018’s very successful The Railway Children & Railway Roundabout, Furness Youth Theatre returns to The Forum with a highly adventurous production featuring young actor-musicians.

Writer, Musical Director, & Choreographer Elisabeth Greaves is a language teacher, science fiction and historical author, and piano and singing tutor. She runs children’s drama and workshops; recent productions include Calamity Jane, Mary Watson and the White Monk Murder, The Frosty Pantomime, and The Pirates of Penzance which played at Ulverston Dickensian Festival. She helped found ACT, now Furness Youth Theatre, as a teenager, arranging and directing music for The Hobbit in 1991. She has been the piano accompanist for FYT since her children joined, as well as accompanying Ulverston Amateur Operatic Society for the last fifteen years. With a Masters degree in history, she is often seen in Norman or Victorian costume, at living history demonstrations with Iron Shepherds Living History.

Director Chris Loveless trained at the Bristol Old Vic Theatre School. His productions have played in London’s West End, the regions, and New York, with several named critics’ choice by Time Out and the Evening Standard. Locally, Chris has directed many productions for Furness Youth Theatre and its predecessor ACT Youth Theatre.


Reviews of The Railway Children & Railway Roundabout:

‘Furness Youth Theatre has what it takes… outstanding actors… some potential big stars… The show is in the hugely capable hands of Chris Loveless’
Helen Wall for The Mail

‘a novel production with its own individual character and charm… theatrical magic… a sheer delight… this production surely proves that Furness Youth Theatre is firmly on the right track’
Graham Whalan for Sardines Magazine
