Young actors bring a vibrant, fresh energy to the theatre, as they did 400 years ago, and continue to do today. Harnessing that raw power of youth on stage, the Pop-up Globe Youth Theatre Company brings you Shakespeare’s The Two Gentlemen of Verona as their exciting debut production this winter, directed by Rita Stone.
Considered likely to be the first comedy Shakespeare wrote, Two Gentlemen is the perfect vehicle for young actors to explore. It follows the adventures of Valentine and Proteus, best buddies, who have their loyal friendship put to the test when Proteus falls in love with his best friend’s girl. Featuring a cross-dressing heroine, a gang of outlaws and a ‘bit with a dog’, Two Gentlemen is sure to delight audiences young and old this winter.
The Pop-up Globe Youth Theatre Company is an ensemble of 15-24 year olds, working with our Youth Theatre Director Rita Stone to create new productions that introduce these young actors to our stage and audience. The company works across two weeks full-time rehearsal to make the show, which has a running time of one hour.
