A Grimm Twist
This show will go down in history as the director's dilemma, what do you do with a Youth Theatre of 26 and an objection to musicals? You write them a play! So in exactly two weeks, director Sam and Intern Dan wrote A Grimm Twist, a play that doesn't rip off Shrek or Disney....
It all started back in the cold, dark and windy September of 2012, the team got together to once again lament over the fact that no suitable play had ever been written for a cast this size. "Well we can't do Alice again" cried Sam. He had become quite attached to that play since its success the previous March. "Let's do some thinking" exclaimed Peri and with that the team 'thunk' for a long, long time, so long in fact they missed tea. Missing tea however proved a worthwhile sacrifice as the team surfaced from their 'thunking' unanimous on what had to be done. "A play must be written" they declared, and so it was...
The two terms that followed were a lot of fun, the youth really enjoyed the opportunity to make brand new, never before played, characters their own. They bought lots of their own ideas to the roles which as a director was really wonderful to witness. The show was hard work, but once again entirely worth it as the cast were great fun and the finished product was spectacular. Well done Youth Theatre!
A quick synopsis
'A Grimm Twist' follows the adventure of a young man called Walt, who finds himself in the world of Jacob and Wilhelm Grimm via a trap door in his father's pub.
Once there he meets a variety or popular fairy tale characters who have been horribly oppressed by the Brothers' Grimm.
Walt vows to put things right, so he travels the land to recruit an army, find love and bring back happy ending once and for all.
Does he do it?....................... of course he does, that's not a spoiler, it's pretty obvious from the outset, there is however one more twist in the tale, you'll have to watch the DVD to find out.
DVD's available soon from Christopher

We also said goodbye to some B-it veteran's (you know who you are), which was very sad. We pray you'll be really blessed with what ever you do next and sign off quoting Vinnie Jones "It's been emotional."
PS remember you're always welcome back, the B-it door never shuts (metaphorically)...
