Senior actors from Mull Youth Theatre travelled to the Beacon Arts Centre in Greenock recently to take part in the National Theatre’s  Connections programme.

Connections is a youth theatre festival that was established 27 years ago and champions the talent of young people from across the UK.

The day started early with introductions to another participating company and then onto hours of workshops for vocal training, bonding and inspiration. After lunch the team moved to the main stage, spending two hours in technical and dress rehearsals before their performance of The Ramayana Reset by Ayeesha Menon. The main stage was massive and a little daunting, but Mull Youth Theatre rose to the occasion.

The performance was exemplary, the actors held the stage and the audience with great skill. Their mentor, director and technical manager took them through their paces and many new skills were learnedA spokesperson for An Tobar and Mull Theatre said: ‘We are so proud of them and they should be very proud of themselves. It was a privilege to spend a joyous few days in their hardworking company.’

The cast included Millie Mitchell-Stephens, Louise Chauvet, James Chauvet, Edie Thorne, Flora Thorne, Lonneke Hutton, Ellie Turnbull, Ayla Purfit, Dominic Hill, Ben Western, Lottie Le Jeune, Bea Caskie, Ava Olden, Eilidh MacDonald.
