In July 2017, DumbWise's Young Actor Musicians programme (YAM) teamed up with Tobacco Factory Theatres to stage a new musical adaptation of ORPHEUS with a bunch of talented young actors/performers/musicians/singers.
"Expect bold theatre, live music and lots of noise as you take on the great musical myth of ORPHEUS. Orpheus is given the power of music by the Gods but how will he use it as he journeys from platinum selling artist to the Underworld and back?"
"This summer Tobacco Factory Theatres are offering an exciting and unique opportunity for young people to take part in a performance summer school directed by actor/musician theatre makers John Ward and David Hewson from award-winning DumbWise Theatre Company. Do you enjoy drama? Do you play an instrument? This summer young actors and young musicians will collaborate and stage a brave, bold and brilliant new production of ORPHEUS."
