Place des Arts’ Coquitlam Youth Theatre Company (CYT) presents Oh, What a Lovely War! 2.0
What happens when you take a two-and-a-half-hour comedy musical about World War One performed by clowns and plonk it in the middle of a worldwide pandemic? You get a heartfelt reflection on the tragedies of war and the resilience of the human spirit during unprecedented times. Oh, What a Lovely War! 2.0 tells not only the British side of World War One, but also the interwoven stories of 20 talented, adaptable and thoughtful young actors wanting to find creativity in a dark time.
This is the public, year-end showcase for the CYT, a performance-based training company for emerging young performers ages 10-17.
Please join us afterwards for a Q&A with the director hosted live on Facebook with questions from you!
Premiere: 6:00 pm
