Welcome and a Happy New Year to all for the first Historical Adventures blog of 2013! Most of us start our New Year by entering it with a good fun sing song of ‘Auld Lang Syne’ by Scotland’s favourite bard, Rabbie Burns. We at Historical Adventures have been following up on this sing song with our very own ‘Burns Projects’ during the Bard’s very own Birthday around schools in your local area. Performing the likes of ‘Address To A Haggis’, Auld Lang Syne’, ‘To A Louse’, ‘To A Mouse’ and of course, ‘Tam O’Shanter’.
With such positive feedback from the schools and with such success with the audiences we are now continuing to celebrate Burns’ legacy by letting our very own Youth Theatre classes put on their own productions of ‘Tam O’Shanter’, being performed by our Johnstone Youth Theatre class (Monday Nights from 6.00 pm until 7.30 pm at St Aidans Church Hall on Tower Road) and the Foxbar Youth Theatre class (Thursday nights from 5.30 pm until 7.00 pm at Foxbar Community Centre on Amochrie Road).
You all know the famous poem featuring Tam, the lovable rogue but now you can watch as we bring that very poem to life on the stage sometime just before the Easter Holidays (dates are to be announced).
Even though we are on our way working on this fun and exciting project, there is always room for more to join in! Both classes are suitable for 7 – 14 year olds and are only £3.50 per person. Even better, Is the fact that your very first class is free!
