Courtyard's Inspired Festival

Inspired Festival at The Courtyard

The Courtyard’s Intermediate Youth Theatres present Inspired Festival this March.

Inspired Festival is a platform for The Courtyard’s Intermediate Youth Theatre groups to use theatre to express themselves. This year groups from The Courtyard, Ledbury & Bromyard all take to the stage.

On Monday 27 March, The Courtyard Intermediates will be performing WITCHES CAN’T BE BURNED, by Silvia Semerciyan.

Anuka has been cast as the lead in her school’s production of The Crucible, so she should be on cloud nine. But something about the play doesn’t sit right with her and, with the help of her fellow cast members, she plans to do something about it. Witches Can’t Be Burned explores young people’s relationships with art and protest and drags Arthur Miller’s play kicking and screaming into the 21st Century.

The Bromyard Intermediates will be performing ORCHESTRA, by Charlie Josephine.

A youth orchestra practises during half term holidays in preparation for a concert. Unexpected events cause them all to interrogate their relationship with success. How do you protect the joy of the process whilst also wanting to be the best? Is striving for artistic excellence worth the pressure of losing a soul?

The Ledbury Intermediates will be performing, THE RED SHOES, by Nancy Harris

Ledbury Intermediates put a spin on Hans Christian Andersen’s timeless tale of ‘The Red Shoes’ in their modern adaptation. Follow Karen’s journey as she becomes entangled in the allure of a pair of magical red shoes and pays the price for vanity and disobedience…

The Courtyard delivers Youth Theatre sessions for ages 4+ in Hereford, Bromyard, Ledbury and Ross-on-Wye. For more information or to join one of The Courtyard’s Youth Theatre groups, contact
