Waterford Youth Arts are delighted to announce that they will be doing a first for the company this summer when they stage a Brecht play 'Happy End' at Garter Lane Theatre. The play was controversial in its early productions in the 1920s as it was seen as too radical by the largely middle class German audience at the time and so it wasn't staged until the early 70s when Meryl Streep and Christopher Lloyd had a hit production in New York. The play is reminiscent of the show 'Guys and Dolls' even though it was written ten years beforehand. It is set among gangsters in Chicago in 1919 and it has a love story between a mob gangster and a Salvation Army singer.
if you know of any young person who would like an intense taste of the performance world then get them to sign-up now at WYA, in Barrack Street. Show Director, Jimmy Fay, is seeking actors, musicians and singers as the show has a number of songs and he would like to put together a live band on stage with their own versions of the famous Kurt Weill music and songs for the show. If you would like to participate it only costs €20 and this exciting project is partnered by both Garter Lane Arts Centre and Waterford City Council.
