Mid Powys Youth Theatre - Lysistrata     

The industrious and talented young people of the mid powys area are again busily rehearsing for this years Mid Powys Youth Theatre autumn show. A hilarious Greek comedy entilted Lysistrata by Aristophanes.

Following on from the hard hitting and powerful collaboration show The Children by Edward Bond performed in Llandrindod Wells with Theatr Powys, the company return again to the Wyeside Arts Centre in Builth with a cast over 40 actors and musicians for their autumn spectacular.

Returning to produce the show this year are two former members and directors of the M.P.Y.T Andrew Sterry and Phil John.

Both Andrew and Phil grew up in the locality and attended the youth theatre before going on to study and then work within the theatre industry. Uniquely this year Andrew and Phil who have directed M.P.Y.T shows individually will be collaborating together on this production. They are delighted to have this opportunity to return and work with one of the most exciting groups of young theatre makers in the country.

Rehersals are already well underway and with young people involved in all areas of the production both infront and behind the stage: acting, musicianship,lighting, costume and set design this promises to be a very busy time for all involved.

The Mid Powys Youth Theatre production of Lysistrata is a modern exciting adaptation of a recognised classic of Greek theatre with plenty of laughs in store for the audience who get a ticket. The young company has always had an inclusive policy and there are still some places available for any young person who wants to commit to working backstage on this years show.

Lysistrata runs from the Tuesday 1st of November till Saturday 5th at 8pm.
