Director's Notes

On 8 June, the Lewes Theatre Youth group will be performing their production of Alan Ayckbourn’s play Ernie’s Incredible Illucinations. An amusing and slightly strange tale of a young lad, Ernie and the adventures conjured by his own mind! Or are they?

As well as this short play there will also be a selection of other workshop pieces that they have been working on over the past few months.

There will be the usual food and refreshments served to make this a highly enjoyable and social event that has proven very popular with the group’s families and we would like to extend the offer to the theatre members too. Tickets will be priced at £3.00 or £6.00 if you would like to have some of the refreshments offered. It has always been a very relaxed and informal occasion and we hope to see as many faces there to support this growing and hardworking group.

On Sunday 8 June The Youth Theatre Group presented a programme showcasing their many talents. The first half was a charming and energetic workshop production of Ernie’s Incredible Illucinations in which, dressed in black and with minimalist props the company told the story in a lively and imaginative manner. In the interval wonderful homemade cakes were provided to fortify the audience whilst Owen Daughtery entertained them with magic card tricks. In the second half the young performers presented monologues, duologues and songs which kept the audience amused and entertained. The show was directed by Tim Rowland and James Firth-Haydon. The Mayor of Lewes, Micheal Turner, joined the cast on stage and congratulated them on a well presented show.
