Oooh, We're going to London!!
08/05/01

A big thumbs up to Arnold Clark In Carbrain who are kindly donating a Mini - bus totally gratis for us to go down to London in. Deposits for the trip HAVE to be in for Tuesday 15th May with the full balance being in for Tuesday 28th May to give us time to process everything and get it sent off. Places are on a first come first served and are pretty limited unless you wanna sit on the roof all the way down!!

Mysteries all set to Go!
27/03/01

With easter looming near we all should be remembering what it is all about and reading the Bible is always a good way to refresh our memories. However if reading is not your bag baby! Then why not toddle off down to Cumbernauld Theatre on the 4th to the 7th of April and see it in all its glory with your own eyes as Cumbernauld Youth Theatre along with the 1 in 100 group and No Mean Co. take on their version of the good book. We tell the story of the Bible from start to finish (in a shorter format of course) with stoneface and laughter it sure to be one for all the family.

A big "Thank you!" to MSDW
27/2/01

Every month Morgan Stanley Dean Witter (a firm with branches operating in Cumbernauld and London) gives 50 to an organisation or charity randomly chosen from a list nominated by it's employees. Corin MacKenize (CYT member and MSDW employee) nominated Cumbernauld Youth Theatre for the 50 prize, and we won!!
Now all we need is something to spend it on....

"Alseep Under the Dark Earth" to tour?
27/2/01

At the last AGM, CYT were hopeful that the production of "Alseep Under the Dark Earth" could be taken on a tour of 4 other theatres. During the production of the show this looked unlikely, however a final decision is yet to be made. The Youth Theatre is waiting with bated breath for the final decision, as if the play were to tour, it would be the first time in the Youth Theatre's history.

New production is full of Mysteries
19/2/01

CYT after finishing Asleep Under the Dark Earth are wasting no more time in getting their next play under way. Rehearsal for "The Mysteries" were taking place before "Asleep..." was even performed. "The Mysteries" is a collection of short plays from traditional bible stories. After talking with CYT members there is a lot of enthusiasm amongst the cast for this production, which will be a more light hearted affair than "Asleep..." was.

Asleep Under the Dark Earth run completed!
19/2/01

Cumbernauld Youth Theatre has completed a 4 show run of Asleep Under the Dark Earth. This play was first commissioned by the BT National Connections competition (a nation wide youth theatre competition) five years ago. The production was performed to sell out and near-sell out audiences every night!

Money for London
18/6/00

30 of the money we got from doing the Stirling Youth Theatre fundraising is going towards hiring the mini bus for an extra day so that we can go to London a day early (on Thursday night instead of Friday morning) so we won't miss Friday down there.

CYT @ Local Charity Event

On Friday 26th May and Saturday 27th, members of Cumbernauld Youth Theatre will be helping out at Cumbernauld's Adsa supermarket's fundraising event for autistic children.  Members of the Youth Theatre will be present to face paint any willing customers for 50p.  The money from which will go to the cause.  This is not where CYT's collaboration with Asda ends however, as at the moment a date is being organsied for CYT members to be busy bag packing to raise money for Cumbernauld Theatre.   Keep an eye on this page for updates.

CYT involved in local film Project
24/5/00



Matt Love

CYT's members not only get involved on the stage, but have of late, participated in a creation for the big screen.   Young film maker, Matthew Love, in his last year at Luton University, came back to Cumbernauld to enlist the help of the Youth Theatre, for the creation of his film.   The film is set in Cumbernauld and takes a look at the problems and virtues the town has by using a mix of scripted filmed scenes and archive footage documentaries about the award winning new town.  CYT members appear in the film as local youths, workmen, and thugs, as well as being involved behind the scenes as sound, camera and director's assistants.  Overall about 30 members of Cumbernauld youth theatre, including relatives of them, took part in the filming of this production.  Look out for an article by Mathew Love appearing in the Articles section within the next month.

Matt's film is shown on June 7th at Luton's "Artesium"
