Congratulations to all who took part in last week’s National Festival of Youth Theatre in Glenrothes. Izzie, Laura, Ruaridh, Matthew J, Joanne, Kyle, Anna, Matthew S, Amy and Iona gave a great performance of their deceptively simple, but stunningly visual devised work, Beastly Tails. One of 13 shows presented by youth theatre from across Scotland (plus a great Irish group from Kildaire), Beastly Tails was particularly striking for its lyrical content, intense physicality and Firefly’s own special brand of integrated BSL signing.
4 days of extreme camping, workshopping, performance, networking and plenty more besides.Thanks to you all for representing yourselves and Firefly with such fun, confidence, creativity and support for others.
Thanks also to Promote YT for putting this annual event together. Especial thanks to Eleanor and Euan for being the responsible adults, tech team and tent re-pitchers (and for not going into labour and testing out Firefly’s midwifery procedures!)
