Following their acclaimed summer production of Willy Russell’s ‘Our Day Out – the musical’, and the group’s involvement in our hugely popular Christmas pantomime ‘Jack & the Beanstalk’, the multi-talented SDC Youth Theatre continues to go from strength to strength.

Their latest production is an exciting dramatisation of Philip Pullman’s award-winning books. ‘His Dark Materials’ was a triumph at the National Theatre where; due to popular demand, it was staged for two years running.
The story follows friends Lyra and Will on a thrilling adventure through a land of fantastical creatures, rebellious angels, soul-eating spectres, child-catching Gobblers and the armoured bears and witch-clans of the Arctic.
At times funny, poignant and gripping, this is a play for anyone who enjoys a good story, anyone who ever wanted to go on an adventure, anyone who has never lost their curiosity.
‘A work that will endure for generations’ Daily Telegraph.
