Multimedia movie-inspired show

A NEW two-day theatre production inspired by old B-movies will go on show in Lerwick in March.

Shetland Youth Theatre will perform Gargantua in the Mareel auditorium on 11 and 12 March.

The production will focus on Hugh Mungus, a 220 foot tall baby who exacts revenge upon the world.

The story was written by Carl Grosse and it pays tribute to B-movies from the 1950s.

The local production will feature 20 young actors, with John Haswell on directing duties.

It forms part of National Theatre Connections, the largest youth theatre festival in the world, and will feature work from Shetland College music students, live film action from Maddrim Media and pre-made clips from Mareel-based video production students.

The performers will then take the show to Inverness as part of the Connections festival.

Tickets for the Mareel shows will go on sale from Friday.
