Youth theatre

Skill-up, the annual gathering for youth theatre leaders, goes north next week, taking the great and good in their field. For its second conference, Promote YT, the national agency, goes to the Craigmonie Centre at Drumna-drochit, on the shores of Loch Ness. Director Colin Bradie's credo is that because "young people are the future of our cultural landscape, it is essential that the people inspiring, instructing, and leading them are highly skilled and working examples of best practice". He has recruited Guy Hollands (TAG and Citizens Theatre), Francis Gallop (scenographer and dramaturg), John McGeoch (Arts in Motion), Robert Softley (Birds of Paradise), Gerry Ramage (Solar Bear), John Batty (Eden Court), Jeni Herbert (Mellow Yellow), Julie Ellen (Playwrights Studio), Maggie Kinloch (RSAMD) and Kenny McGlashan (SYT) to lead the discussions and workshops.
