Bay Theatre Players Youth Theatre : The Trolleys Project

Bay Theatre Players Youth Theatre is currently running a series of workshops called The Trolleys Project. 30 children from all over the Eurobodalla are gathering to investigate the world of the play The Trolleys by Sarah West. They are then participating in 8 workshops run during the first half of the year. These events will be taking place in various community spaces and are being run by a team of creatives from our local community with expertise in creative and performing arts. The BTP hope to highlight the success of the project which will lead to an opportunity for the kids to audition for a role in a production of the play on stage at The Bay Playhouse in November. This production will also include two weekday matinees specifically for school groups to attend.

Note that the workshops are full. This project of workshops through to production is sponsored by The Batemans Bay Soldiers Club through their Clubs Grants Scheme and Eurobodalla City Council through their Healthy Communities Grants.

Some of the events are: - Exploring the Play which is the 1st one. - a Props and Costume Design and Creation workshop and a Junk Percussion workshop as well as drama activities. The Trolleys are a gang of six living on the outskirts of the city. In this dangerous world light is the most important commodity and they all know they need their light jars to survive. Now their lights are fading fast and no one knows why. It’s up to Savage Kim and her fiery, soulful, smart, skittish gang to embark on a dangerous journey to figure it out. All they know is that they don’t have much time. No one wants to live in the dark and if they fail they too will disappear. They will become Dusters.

This is a contemporary Australian play by Sarah West
