Blue Remembered Hills
Nov 11th and 12th 2016 Sue Townsend Theatre
The story revolves around a summer's afternoon in a remote country setting - according to the script in the West Country, [the play was actually shot in Dorset] but probably meant to represent the Forest of Dean - in 1943. A group of seven seven year olds are playing in the forest. The play opens with Willie, eating an apple and pretending to pilot a war plane, when he encounters, falling from a tree as a parachutist, Peter. After a fight over Willie's apple - in which Peter attempts to show how powerful a bully he can be - the two eventually spot a squirrel and chase and corner it up a tree. They are joined by John and Raymond , and the group of lads attempt to force the squirrel down the tree and managed to trap and kill it.

A beautiful but incredibly challenging score and a real passion of our musical director James. Beautiful acting, stunning scenic art and elegant costumes all added to a beautiful production.
LORD OF THE FLIES
PERFORMED JULY 2014
Lord of the Flies was our first straight acting show and again redefined audience expectations of the acting abilities of young people. Written by the cast and director this was a stunning performance.
PERFORMED MAY 2014
Following Cats was never going to be easy but our youngsters managed to rise to the challenge and cover it in Spluge! Great costumes, brilliant props and incredible energy.
CATS THE MUSICAL
PERFORMED MARCH 2014
Our production of Cats continued on from the success of Les Miserables / Millie and maintaining our extremely high standards with some remarkable performances by the LTG cast. This iconic musical offered the great opportunity to involve many local
dance schools in the production which sold out and was our first show at our new home Hansom Hall. Flame throwers and a giant rubbish tip gave us a great opportunity to stretch our professional technicians as well as the dancers.
THOROUGHLY MODERN MILLIE
PERFORMED SEPTEMBER 2013
We enjoyed more success with highly successful production of Millie at Upper Brown Street Theatre. Described by one audience member involved in local amateur shows as ‘a worry that they can dance as well as they can sing’. This fast moving comedy musical was complimented by a set entirely created with cartoons designed for the show at Upper Brown St theatre.
PERFORMED MARCH 2012
Our production of Les Miserables performed in March 2012 at Bishop Street set new standards for local youth theatre productions. A 40 strong choir and an astonishingly high quality group of lead actors showed what could be achieved by young people. With the stunning backdrop of the Bishop St Methodist Church, a full youth orchestra and over £100k of technical equipment LTG opened it’s catalogue of full productions.
