Off the Ground Youth Theatre


monkey small title

“There was a rock that, one day, became magically pregnant. 

Eventually it split open giving birth to a stone monkey.

The nature of monkey was irrepressible!”

Off the Ground Youth Theatre are re-telling one of the greatest stories ever written.  The classic Chinese novel Journey to the West is better known to most Westerners as Monkey, and it tells of a journey to India to collect Buddha's sacred scrolls.  Monkey is joined on the journey by the priest Tripitaka, the lecherous Pigsy and the water-demon Sandy.  But all is not easy for the four pilgrims.  They must overcome dragons, monkey-eating demons, Yama, King of the Dead and being imprisoned in a mountain for five hundred years before they can finish their quest!

Join us; bring a picnic, something to sit on and a thirst for adventure!

Royden Park Thurs 4th, Fri 5th and Sat 6th July.

The Canterbury Tales

Off The Ground Youth Theatre Presents

 "The Canterbury Tales"

By Geoffrey Chaucer

This is an outrageous re-telling of Chaucer’s classic "The Canterbury Tales". If you’ve never seen this on stage it’s time to grab a bottle of wine and some friends and travel with our improvisational impresarios to Canterbury. On their way they lay bets on who can tell the tallest (often dirtiest) tale!  If you think classic literature is all tights and posh accents – think again. Say no more, except “where can I get tickets?”

"The Canterbury Tales" is on Thursday  14th to Saturday 16th March 7.30 at Calday Grange Grammar school.

Cabaret style, please bring your own alcohol.
