In 2008 the youth theatre had a very busy summer with a residential trip to the Edinburgh festival to see lots of shows and meet other youth groups, as well as performances at a variety of Liverpool’s summer festivals.

Their performance highlight was at Liverpool’s Children and Young People’s Festival where over 5,000 audience members watched their antics as residents of the fictional Roopville. Having recently integrated young people from our young refugee and asylum seeker project, this enabled the group to take a more light hearted look at issues around sense of place, isolation and immigration.
