Trunk is an exciting new interactive performance created by Julia McGhee for children aged between 4 and 6 years. The performance centres on a large travelling trunk containing a collection of objects. As each object appears or new sound is heard from inside the trunk, the children become participants in an exciting adventure which sees them go on a train journey. Enjoy a day on the beach and explore the wonders of a fast flowing river till they complete their journey underneath the stars."I loved the magic trunk, the stories, music.

It was the bestest" Participants, North Kessock

Dumfries Youth Theatre presents their most daring piece of work yet presented with Chancer’s Nightclub.
Written and Directed by Graham Main, the brand new play looks at the challenging darkness associated with racism through the eyes of a young man who heads out with a group of friends on a night’s clubbing.
He comes into contact with an underground character who takes him on a gritty emotional rollercoaster through his own consciousness. Audiences have been told to prepare for the unexpected with the show carrying an over 16’s only certificate.
Part of the Youth Learning Journeys funded by Fresh Start For The Arts.
