The show season begins with Shakespeare’s ‘Macbeth’, followed by ‘Zigger Zagger’, then fairytale-based epic ‘Into the woods’ and wrapping up with ‘Our House’.

The Curve said: “CYC enables young people between the ages of 7 – 19 years to take part in high quality performances and production activity.

“It provides participants with the opportunity to develop their skills as both creators and performers, and to get close to the professional productions being made at Curve.”

The Young Company’s first showing will be Macbeth and will take place on March 7. The show will take a unique twist on Macbeth with five actors playing each aspect of him.

The Curve has called the playa fresh and dynamic, physical theatre take on Shakespeare’s bloodthirsty classic. Macbeth’s fractured persona is represented on stage by five actors.”

The second show will be Peter Terson’s Zigger Zagger, the modern classic following the story of a young boy named Harry Philton.

The play is said to be “both humorous and moving by turns, this sometimes-anarchic modern production remains relevant to young people today.”

In mid-April, the Curve will begin its third chapter of its CYC season and will begin the production of The Brothers Grimm hit show, Into the Woods.

The Curve described theenchanting and endearing musical takes everyone’s favourite storybook characters and brings them together.”

The season will finish up with two final showings of the The Madness musical, Our House, that will include hit songs such as House of Fun, Baggy Trousers and the all time classic, Our House.

The season ends on May 31. Tickets for the shows range from £10-£14 and are only available on selected days, the list of shows are available at:
