Our Side of Town
In March 2019 Haringey Shed Youth Theatre presented their production of “Our Side of Town” to an audience of over 500, an original piece of musical theatre, from Haringey Shed’s Youth Theatre performed at The Bernie Grant Arts Centre in the heart of Tottenham
A coming of age tale of talent, finding your place and making your mark. Spoilt only child Octavia and her parents arrive in a new town, eager to get a fresh start. Octavia loves to sing, and when she sees that the annual talent competition is coming up, she thinks this might be her chance to make her mark on the town, but to her horror she reads that no solo acts are allowed! This is bad news for solo singer Octavia – she never collaborates! Will Octavia find a place in this strange new town? Will she learn to collaborate? And who will win the annual talent competition?
“Congratulations!! What a wonderfully, enjoyable and engaging piece of theatre you have treated us to! I loved the story I you all worked beautifully together- singing, rapping and dancing as one. Continue the brilliant work in inspiring all the audience that get to experience your magic x “
“Another amazing performance from the whole cast. Really wonderful energy, enthusiasm and talent: a great story- very uplifting. Thank you soo much, fabulous teamwork”
