The National Youth Music Theatre

BRASS. 20-23rd August 2014. A unique piece of youth music theatre commissioned to commemorate the centenary of the outbreak of WW1.
To be premièred at the City Varieties Music Hall in Leeds on the very stage where many of the real life Leeds Pals signed up.
Directed by the Oliver Award-winning actress, Sara Kestelman.

The story follows a group of Leeds residents from the start of the war until the battle of the Somme in 1916. The men, members of an amateur brass band, join up to the Leeds Pals regiment and their womenfolk decide to learn the instruments that the men have left behind. We watch the women trying to learn the brass instruments whilst the men simply try to stay alive. It is an epic musical about love and survival.
