Yellow Moon

If you are an avid reader of the TAG blog (for all our children and young people's news), you will have heard the latest - David Greig has just received the Brian Way Award 2008 for Yellow Moon. This award is given to playwrights who write for young people.

This news arrives just as the Yellow Moon cast land in New York for the Brits off Broadway festival. The 2008 tour kicks off this Wednesday at 59E59 Theaters in Manhattan. The show is there for a month, before returning to the UK for a tour. If you don't know what it's about, we have a new 1 minute trailer that explains all...

Little Otik - new trailer released

In our rehearsal rooms a dark story is developing...about a baby made from wood! Intrigued? It's the fabulous story of Little Otik, based on the cult film by Jan Svankmajer. Adapted and Directed by Matthew Lenton, this is the latest offering from the ever creative and outstandingly imaginative Vanishing Point theatre company in a new collboration with National Theatre of Scotland and ourselves here at the Citz.

Just click on the video below to watch a trailer for the show and we'll be bringing you more behind-the-scenes footage and interviews as the show is lovingly brought to life.

Opening Night Success

Last night saw a fantastic start to They Shoot Horses, Don't They? at the Citizens' Theatre. A big crowd came to enjoy a brilliant performance. Well done to all involved - a special mention must go to all those who had never before acted on stage. In fact even some of the experienced members of the Community Company had never before been on the Citz main stage...I would imagine a rather daunting prospect.

I have to say that there were fantastic performances all round. What a huge achievement. The show is on until Saturday night, so there are still 4 chances to see it. Call 0141 429 0022 to book your ticket!...or book online here.
