e can’t quite remember who first told us that small is good, but GG has always believed in quality over quantity.
And it’s something that Greystones’ Making Waves Youth Theatre are clearly out to prove with their latest production, First Takes: An Evening Of Scenes & Sketches.
Running at The Whale Theatre this Friday and Saturday, the whole idea of of First Takes is giving the young actors a series of juicy roles that they can really sink their teeth into. Which, of course, is a handy way for any actor to showcase their incredible range, baby.
Having grown out of youth theatre’s twice-weekly workshops at Coolnagreina – Sundays 2pm to 4.30pm and Mondays 7pm to 9pm, calendar fans! – the excitement of delivering a short, sharp moment in time, like a chance meeting, proved a major spark for everyone involved.
Including Making Waves’ veteran Aleisha (who was part of the 2018 founding) and German visitor Liliane, who we managed to catch before one of their final rehearsals down at The Whale theatre…
Taking place on Friday 6th and Saturday 7th of May at The Whale Theatre, tickets for First Takes are €12 and €10 and are available here.
