Celebrating the talent and creativity of young people in St Albans.

Tip of the Iceberg  and Trestle Youth Theatre

Celebrating the talent and creativity of young people in St Albans.
Production of ‘Peter Pan’ at Trestle Arts Base Monday 12th December 6pm and 8pm

On the evening of Monday 12th December Trestle Arts Base will step back in time as the youth theatre will perform an original Victorian version of ‘Peter Pan’.  The production includes every member of the youth theatre with nearly 40 young people aged between 4 and 16 and is a truly magical theatrical production including a flying Peter Pan, puppets and a moving 13ft pirate ship. 

The story is told by J, M and Barrie an eccentric trio who take us from the Darling’s house, to Neverland, the Lagoon and back again. Trestle and Tip of the Iceberg are two professional local theatre companies who joined forces in September to ensure that despite arts cuts they could still offer affordable professional theatre fun and training for all ages and abilities. 

The youth theatre is going from strength to strength and this performance shows how the young people, directors, theatre companies and the Trestle Arts Base are all working together.  Lisa Schulberg the youth theatre director said  “We chose Peter Pan as it’s a story about being young, having fun, and enjoying imaginary places, which is exactly what the youth theatre is all about.  Our production is a large step away from the Disney story and has been a real challenge for everyone involved, however it’s been amazing to watch all the age groups working together and finding creative ways to bring the traditional version to life.” 

The groups meet on a Monday evening at the Trestle Arts Base – TYPTO 4-7yrs 4-5pm TYPT2 8-12yrs 5-6.30pm and TYC 13-18yrs 6.30-9pm and the Spring term starts on 9th January there are a few spaces available.   

There are also a few tickets available left for both shows.
