We support and develop opportunities for young people to get involved in theatre across the borough. Our ambition is to support existing groups and develop new opportunities for young people across Surrey.
At the beginning of 2015/16 season, the group worked on a production of Gargantua, which they performed at Farnham Maltings in late March and then again at the start of May at the Lyric Theatre in Hammersmith as part of the National Theatre’s Connections festival. The season closes with the summer being spent focusing on different stagecraft skills and attending workshops with a range of professional artists. The 2016/2017 season shall see the company take on a new production and further workshops.
Wednesday evenings 6.30 – 8.30pm for ages 14-25yrs (£65, 10 sessions per term).
Mondays 6pm – 7.30pm for 8-13yrs (£4 per session).
Led by a professional artist, weekly sessions will include fun drama games, improvisation, puppetry and devising, giving members chance to experience a wide range of theatre styles.
