JIGSAW Music Theatre is taking to the stage once more with an exciting piece of original theatre.
The youngsters, aged between seven and 16, will be performing The Invisible Girl at The Forum Studio Theatre at the old Gateway Theatre next week.
The play is based on a little- known fairy story by J L Garcia Sanchez and M A Pacheco about a girl who lives in a valley between two towns.
The main character, Annie, played by Penny Mitchell, 11, of Bishops’ High School, is so upset by the evil plans of the children of the towns to hurt each other that she cries so much she becomes invisible.
Head councillor of Blueville is Richard Fastbuck, played by Jackson Kelsall, 15, of Bishops’ High. His antagonist in Greenville is 14-year-old Monika Taneska of Hawarden High.
In true Jigsaw style, the youngsters have helped devise the script and written lyrics for the songs by musical directors Matt Baker and Erin Elston.
Musicians, dancers and actors explore the reasons behind the grotesque division between the two groups.
The Invisible Girl is at The Forum Studio Theatre on Wednesday and Thursday, January 16 and 17, at 7.30pm. For tickets, contact Julie Elston on 07747110933.
