De Warenne Academy wow the audiences at CAST

De Warenne Academy performed Variations by Katie Hims at the CAST Theatre on Wednesday 3rd April at 7:15pm as part of National Theatre Connectionsa nationwide celebration of new plays for young people.

Variations is one of ten brand new plays written especially for Connections by a selection of the best playwriting talent in the UK. Thirteen-year-old Alice wishes her life was completely different. She wakes up one morning to find that her life is different. In fact, it's so different that all she wants to do is get back to normality. But how does she do that?

National Theatre Connections is one of the UK’s largest celebrations of youth theatre. Plays are commissioned for and about young people, from some of the best contemporary playwrights, and performed by schools and youth theatres all over the UK and Ireland. Young people have the opportunity to get involved in all aspects of creating and staging the play both on and offstage, from set design to costume, lighting and stage management.
