Cowboy Gangsters ...
A fun evening showcasing the work of SAVVY Theatre Company over the past year with performances including 'Ripples In The Water' direct from the Surrey Youth Drama Festival, an original Gangster Whodunnit (part scripted/part improvised) from the Wandle Boys Drama Group and 'Coke Floats & Chemo' direct from the Brighton Fringe – based on the internationally acclaimed blog by Yvonne Newbold.
The Surrey Youth Drama Festival
The SAVVY Young Company took part again this year with a brand new show performed at the Ivy Arts Centre, Guildford - originally devised in conjunction with the Action Replay Drama Group.
"If our actions ripple out like dropping a stone in the water, what effect would going back in time have? This is a light-hearted look at that very question, involving a scientist, a time machine and a thief – as well as a host of other recognisable characters! Can (and should) you change history, or would it just be a good opportunity to teach some very annoying people a very good lesson?!"
Coke Floats & Chemo
Yvonne has cancer – only she doesn’t have TIME for cancer. She’s busy with kids and work and cooking and coke-floats. Not only that, the cancer is interfering with the London Olympics! Based on the internationally acclaimed blog, this hilariously insightful journey is not about cancer, but how an Olympic-sized event brings out the competitor in all of us.
Written by Sheree Vickers and Yvonne Newbold, this show premiered at this year's Brighton Fringe.
The Wandle Valley drama boys devised the story, developed their characters, made the props, studied professional fight direction and story-boarded their scenes to create a short film set inside a pirate ship ... there was even a thieving parrot on board!

This year the Acting Company explored technical aspects of comedy and drama - their similarities, their rhythms and the fun in combining the two when performing long-form impro!
The Action Replay Drama Group once again devised a brand new piece for Sutton Mencap’s annual 'Strictly Dance' event at the Secombe Theatre. The show was later re-invented by the SAVVY Young Company and performed at the Ivy Arts Centre, Guildford.
"A time machine is stolen and the evil scientist who stole it reeks havoc in Sutton High Street, sending people back to the past to teach them a lesson or change the course history!"
