Furness Youth Theatre presents: Timecopter

From: The Forum
A time travelling musical adventure for all ages at the Forum.

Miss’ granddad’s wild invention takes her and her class back to the Dark Ages; there they help rescue a dragon from the Knights of Camelot. When they try to get home, they travel to the future, where their different skills help save the whole world. A lonely robot offers to send them home, although Miss has left her heart in Camelot… 

After 2018’s very successful The Railway Children & Railway Roundabout, Furness Youth Theatre returns to The Forum with a highly adventurous production featuring young actor-musicians.

She runs children’s drama and workshops; recent productions include Calamity Jane, Mary Watson and the White Monk Murder, The Frosty Pantomime, and The Pirates of Penzance which played at Ulverston Dickensian Festival. She helped found ACT, now Furness Youth Theatre, as a teenager, arranging and directing music for The Hobbit in 1991. She has been the piano accompanist for FYT since her children joined, as well as accompanying Ulverston Amateur Operatic Society for the last fifteen years.
