The Academy is recruiting at the Octagon Theatre

Are you looking to do something new? Have you never been involved in drama production before – but fancy trying it? Are you aged 14 – 21? Then the Academy is for you.

During our time together – December 3rd 2018 until July 2019, meeting every Monday night 4.30pm-7.30pm – we will work with theatre makers from across the country to explore what theatre is and how it is made. We will then make our own piece of theatre, supported by industry professionals, and take it out on tour to community venues in and around Bolton and beyond.

Amy Liptrott, the Director and Producer of the Academy says: “I love this project and it’s exciting to know the group will work with so many brilliant theatre makers and industry professionals to create their own, original work. I love what can happen when people work together to create something they care about and can feel proud of. What I’m looking forward to most is seeing the group get to know each other and develop together making an exciting piece of theatre.”

The group will meet every Monday during term time from 4.30pm-7.30pm in the participation space at the Market Place.

If you have any queries, please email academy@octagonbolton.co.uk or call 01204 556501 and speak to Amy or Alex.
