BEST VENUE (THE THEATRE BATH BUS)
The project involved bringing Zenith members to Edinburgh Fringe Festival for one week presenting four shows a day for one week.These performance were performed on the Theatre Bus (Venue 323) on The Meadows In the heart of Edinburgh.
With the creation of the theatre bus by Theatre Bath it became possible to bring Zenith Youth Theatre to the largest theatre festival in the world in an affordable venue.
AMONGST MANY MANY AMAZING MEMORIES AND NEW FRIENDS THE PROJECT ALSO ACHIEVED THE FOLLOWING:
Allowed a group of young people to experience and explore the largest arts festival in the world.
Demonstrated to the company how they might want to create their own work and bring it to the festival in future years
Gave the opportunity for Zenith members to perform in an international theatre festival
Whilst performing to be in a professional environment they worked alongside professional companies from around the world.
Gave the company the opportunity to stage productions they wouldn’t normally be able to present due to cast size and subject matter
Gave opportunities to some ex-members to come back after professional drama training and direct some of the productions
Enhanced the profile and reputation of Zenith Youth Theatre Company on the national and international stage.
Created an even stronger bond between the company members with them making friends for life.
Provided a relatively inexpensive opportunity for young people to engage with the festival.
Expanded and widened the horizons and ambitions of Zenith and getting us used to working outside of our comfort zone.
