The Gobstoppers Theatre Company have been celebrating 21 years on stage with a summer of great performances. The company, which helps young thespians develop theatrical experience, has been touring the country during the season. The Gobstoppers were selected to perform As You Like It at the Royal Shakespeare Company’s Dell Festival in Stratford-upon-Avon in July, while in August, a group went on stage at The Minack Theatre, Cornwall, with Macbeth and As You Like It.
The Wicked Summer course saw 40 children aged 4 to 15 years take part in the five day project, which included learning the songs and extracts from the West End show.
The group now look forward to a production of The Witches of Eastwick on Halloween and the formation of The GAP Year Theatre Company, for those who are thinking about going to drama school and taking a year out. Gobstoppers classes run from their own drama studio in Berkhamsted and The Boxmoor Playhouse.
