BEHIND THE SCENES

Now Is Good celebrates the magic that happens when generations come together. The cast and writer Tim Firth took a break from rehearsals so we could let Storyhouse Youth Theatre ask them…anything!

Come behind the scenes with writer Tim Firth and musical director George Francis as they show us the magic of how a memory of a loved one can be transformed into a musical score.
