Gloucester Youth Players present As You Like It, a tale of jealousy, misplaced love, deceit and redemption, a tale for our times.
An innovative youth theatre company based in Cheltenham, GYP welcomes young, aspiring actors to become involved with Shakespeare and to communicate these timeless stories to a range of audiences in a fast-paced, vivacious and energetic way, whilst remaining true to the text. We work to produce exciting, lively, entertaining and challenging theatre which fully engages our audiences, whether young or old.
GYP, now in its tenth season, is the only youth theatre company in the UK and Europe which performs solely Shakespeare. Now in its tenth season, regional tours in the past have included performances of Hamlet, Twelfth Night, A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Romeo and Juliet, The Taming of the Shrew, Much Ado about Nothing, The Tempest and others in venues ranging from airport runways, to village halls, to the Royal Shakespeare Company gardens, to professional theatre venues such as Longborough Festival Opera and the Tobacco Factory, and, this year, the Arcola Theatre.
