Two upcoming productions from Launceston Youth Theatre Ensemble will show up the talent of Launceston's rising theatrical stars.
Twist, a take on the classic Dickens novel, stars runs December 2, 3, and 4 at 6pm and stars performers aged prep to grade 6.
Once Upon a Pine, an adaption of the story of Pinocchio, is fast-paced, filled with hilarious characters and audience participation, and runs December 9 and 10 at 6pm with performers in grades 5 -8.
Artistic director Jane Johnson said it was particularly heartening to see young boys in particular take to the arts, with mentors sticking around to pass on their skills.
"These are stunning stage adaptions of timeless literary works; true ensemble theatre that celebrates the power of imagination and storytelling", she said.
Both shows are at the Earl Arts Centre and tickets to both cost $19 full, $16 concession through Trybooking.
