Leitrim Youth Theatre Company - Treasure Island

Adapted by Phil Willmott

Directed by Catherine Sheridan.

This swashbuckling stage adaptation brings out all the comedy and adventure of this ever-popular story. The effect of Treasure Island on our perception of pirates cannot be overestimated. Stevenson linked pirates forever with maps, black schooners, tropical islands, and one-legged seamen with parrots on their shoulders. The treasure map with an X marking the location of the buried treasure is one of the most familiar pirate props, yet it is entirely a fictional invention which owes its origin to Stevenson’s original map. 

Venue: The Dock, Carrick on Shannon
Thursday 19th May: performances at 10am & 1pm
Friday May 20th: performances at 10am and 7pm
Saturday May 21st: 7pm

Laois Youth Theatre - Annual Production

Laois Youth Theatre present their annual show on May 21st in Dunamaise Arts Centre, Portlaoise.  The younger crew are busy readying Don’t Shoot the Messenger by John Morton.  They are having way too much fun, given that they are the only children left in the land and can’t agree on a single thing!  They have the poor Messenger run ragged, and her only trying to do her job!

The older crew have been busy writing their show.  Michelle Read took them through their paces in a series of workshops earlier in the year and as a result LYT will present monologues, scenes, letters and a lot of other stuff in between.  Space pirates, penny farthing enthusiasts, magical magic dogs and a superhero who can’t manage to “die already” are just some of the more extravagant creations that inhabit this strange new world.

More details soon!
