Young actors got stuck into meaty roles at this year’s Big Theatre 2011 event at Bonsall School.

Seventeen participants and the Big Theatre team, Louise Maskill, Finn Shannon and Jo Shannon, worked together for two weeks to put together a fantastic production of As Meat Loves Salt - The tragic history of King Lir and his daughters - a tale of sibling rivalry and the problems that arise when a king decides to retire.

The two week course involved acting, stage fighting, dancing, singing and all aspects of stage craft.

Big Theatre 2011 was based at Bonsall School and funded by Derbyshire Dales District Council Community Fund and Arts Development in the Derbyshire Dales.
