Trowbridge Arts Youth Company 2017
February 27, 2017 @ 6:30 PMView all dates for this event
This is a great opportunity for young people to explore theatre and their own creativity. The Youth Company will create their own performances and have the opportunity to see professional performances as part of their termly fee.
Youth theatre encourages young people to become creators of theatre, they will work by devising their own performances as well as using scripts to inspire their performances. We follow the principles of the National Association of Youth Theatre Associate and believe that all young people have a right to participate in high quality, engaging, challenging and meaningful theatre experiences.
We're delighted to say that TAYC has been accepted onto the National Theatre’s Connections programme. This is really exciting for TAYC as it will provide an opportunity to work on a new piece of writing specifically for young people, will allow the Company to perform in different spaces,and we hope visit London to see the Connections pieces performed next year.
Connections is the National Theatre’s nationwide youth theatre festival. Each year it offers a unique opportunity for youth theatres and school theatre groups to stage new plays written for young people by some of theatre’s most exciting playwrights, and to perform in leading theatres across the UK
To help towards funding this project we have increased our termly fee from £50 to £60 but we do have a bursary fund so please don't let the fee put you off. If you need part of full help towards our fee please don't hesitate to get in touch.
As part of the enrolment fee our Youth Theatre are offered the opportunity to see a professional performance.
Places are limited so if you would like to register a young person onto our Youth Theatre please email firstname.lastname@example.org and places will be allocated on a first come first served basis.
