A bilingual performance based on Stevenson’s The Lantern Bearers.
In April this year, Mull Senior Youth Theatre travelled to France as part of an exchange visit with the youth theatre of Roullens, Carcassonne. They joined the young French people in workshops, culminating in a bilingual performance to a 200-strong audience. The Mull students were treated like royalty, and they looked forward to returning the hospitality when their French friends return to Tobermory in October. For this performance as part of the Argyll Youth Arts Festival they used Stevenson’s The Lantern Bearers for inspiration. This collaboration has given the students a cultural and creative lifetime experience. Thanks to Nurturing Talent Fund and Comar for supporting this venture.
