What's happening at the Pump House CYT
Tue 28 Jun – Sat 2 Jul 7.30pm Matilda The Musical is the multi-award winning musical, inspired by the beloved book by the incomparable Roald Dahl. With book by Dennis Kelly and original songs by Tim Minchin, Matilda The Musical is the story of an extraordinary little girl who, armed with a vivid imagination and a sharp mind, dares to take a stand and change her own destiny.
The Pump House Youth Theatre has created a new series of 10 minute documentaries to raise awareness why rainforest protection is paramount for, not just those communities living and looking after the rainforests, but for us all.
Pump House CYT is a volunteer run open access Youth drama group that has been going for over 40 years. Our aim is to provide young people of all backgrounds the opportunity to perform on stage. We strive to achieve the highest standards possible while keeping an enjoyable, learning environment.
We do several productions a year including everything from mimes & improvisation through to large scale musicals. We have two sections – Children (8-14 years) and Youth section (14-25 years) that each meet once week (and more often for some production rehearsals). We regularly take part in local drama festivals, the National Theatre Connection festival and occasional we take productions to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.
We do not offer any exams or formal training but our members gain confidence and presentation skills that they take onto their future lives. However some of our past members have gone on to professional careers in acting, music and other media.
