About the show
G-Expressions are excited to announce our brand-new musical production ‘Urban School of Arts’ written by our Creative Arts Development Officer Nyla Webbe.
With our last production being in 2019, we anticipated when we would be able to do another show and are happy that with thanks to funding from Arts Council Wales we are finally in a position to make it happen.
Urban School of arts is about a group of young people who get the chance to attend a performing arts school to complete a year of training, to upskill themselves and develop as creative artists before facing the big world. These young people face real life situations that teenagers of today are experiencing whilst trying to find themselves and be everything they dream to be, exploring their own identities and finding their voice, all they want to do is be heard and find freedom in a world that can sometimes feel so trapped!
Our most original play,
having taken real life topics that young people face, and creating an original soundtrack, with, and for the teenagers that attend our sessions and workshops. We have lots of dance, music and acting in this show with multiple roles for both teenagers and adults. However, we are cautious that this show does express topics that may be sensitive to some and have fully qualified staff to support anyone who has been affected by any of the issues addressed in the show. The importance of the issues mentioned in the show are to give people an insight into what some teenagers go through and to have a better understanding to the challenges as well as raising awareness.
