The geeks shall in­herit the earth...

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - ON SHOW -

YOUNG ac­tors will be rock­ing out a theatre when they per­form their new show. Ayles­bury Vale Youth Theatre will per­form the new hit mu­si­cal Loserville at The Court Theatre in Tring on Thurs­day, Au­gust 6 to Fri­day, Au­gust 8.

It is 1971. Michael Dork may be a com­puter geek, but he has in­vented some­thing that could change the world.

He has also dis­cov­ered girls: a prospect (al­most) as ex­cit­ing as his love of bi­nary. With its sci-fi plot lines, ‘70s styling and high energy mu­sic, Loserville prom­ises to be an up­beat, funny and en­ter­tain­ing show.

Di­rec­tor Rachael Brown, aged 25, from Leighton Buz­zard, said: “I can’t wait to get started, it’s a bril­liant show and will be a dif­fer­ent chal­lenge for the com­pany, it’s ex­cit­ing and risky to be putting on a brand new mu­si­cal, but we know we have the tal­ent in the com­pany, as well as wel­com­ing new mem­bers with open arms!”

Joey Wat­son-Smith, age 21, from Ayles­bury, play­ing the lead role of Lu­cas, said: “When I dis­cov­ered that Ayles­bury Vale Youth Theatre was do­ing Loserville this sum­mer I was ex­cited. The show is funny, charm­ing, quirky and dy­namic and I can’t wait to work again with the fan­tas­ti­cally tal­ented cast and crew who will no doubt do the show jus­tice.”

Fundrais­ing co-or­di­na­tor for Ayles­bury Vale Youth Theatre Bea Beard has been work­ing hard over

the past few months, or­gan­is­ing both a very suc­cess­ful quiz night and va­ri­ety show, rais­ing more than £700 to help the pro­duc­tion.

She said: “Ayles­bury Vale Youth Theatre has a tra­di­tion of putting on high qual­ity pro­duc­tions and in pre­vi­ous years has per­formed The Wed­ding Singer, All Shook Up and the Drowsy Chap­er­one.

“The cast and crew will work to put ev­ery­thing to­gether dur­ing a two week pe­riod, in­clud­ing all set build­ing, cos­tumes and re­hearsals.

“Ev­ery­thing, from the ad­min­is­tra­tion to the stage man­age­ment is run by young peo­ple, aged 16 to 25. The youngest team mem­ber will be one of the light­ing crew, who turns 16 just days be­fore the show opens.”

Tick­ets cost £8 to £10 and are avail­able from www.courttheatre.co. uk, the box of­fice on 07543 560 478 or Beech­wood Fine Foods, in Frogmore Street, Tring, HP23 5AU (cash only).

The tal­ented young cast of Loserville are bring­ing the show to The Court Theatre in Tring from Au­gust 6 to 8
