SUPERHEROES have taken over Express Youth Theatre in Warrington as members prepare to stage their new show.
The Seniors for ages 11-18 and Juniors for ages 7-11 are joining forces to perform ‘The Superhero Ultraferno’ by Don Zolidis at the Pyramid Arts Centre, Studio Theatre on Saturday, May 12.
The story presents a series of sketches sharing the origins of the heroes and villains everyone knows and loves, through the world of tights-wearing crime-fighters, from the 1960s TV Batman to the soap opera insanity of the Fantastic Four to a bizarre, German opera of Spiderman.
Co-artistic director Hollie Wimpenny said: “Our members have thoroughly enjoyed working on this production, wanting to do something fun and light-hearted this year. We were fortunate enough to receive funding from The Aviva Community Fund to go towards costumes, props and set. So, everyone should expect a full spectacle!”
Express Arts was founded in 2012, focusing on using the arts to enable young people to build self-esteem, learn new skills and meet new people, priding themselves in supporting their members to realise their potential. They run three youth theatre groups in Warrington, two based at the Pyramid Arts Centre and one based at Lymm Village Hall.
Tickets for the performance can be booked at the Pyramid Box Office on 01925 442345, £6 for adults and £4 for concessions. If you would more information about Express Arts you can visit their website: www.expressarts.co.uk
