Altru Young Actors - Missing?

For the past three years that Strange Case has been running, we have worked alongside Altru Drama. A fantastic creative education organisation, specialising in using drama to build confidence and deliver skills. We love nothing more than working with them and especially coming up with designs for the many shows they create.

They run a range of youth theatres throughout Knowsley and their latest project involves the Altru Young Actors Company. A group of actors aged 16-21 who create new and innovative theatre. When an email arrived in our inbox last month from Katrina, young actor and producer, asking if we'd like to be involved in their latest project 'Missing?', we jumped at the chance.

The play has been completely written and devised by the actors and after reading the script we can confirm it is fantastic. Whenever we work with Altru one of the main elements the actors like to include, is getting involved in the design process. We absolutely love it. Our first experience with this was for Narnia three years ago and seeing how far the actors have come is fantastic.

As the play hasn't happened yet, we don't want to give too much away but we couldn't resist sharing a little behind the scenes of our set design workshop that took place on Saturday... but first, a little more information about 'Missing?'.
“What happens when someone goes missing? Is it fair? Is it ever someone’s fault? What happens in that moment when a person finally decides to leave – and you never get a chance to say goodbye?”

Altru Young Actors Company present a newly devised performance, which explores what it means to be missing and how it can affect us all. In a moving, funny and intimate piece of theatre, characters and stories are interwoven as the play asks ‘Aren’t we all a little bit missing?’
Details on how to buy tickets and when it is showing are at the bottom of our post.

To see what all the creating was in aid of... come along to one of the shows. You won't be disappointed, they are a fantastic group of young actors!
