The Academy is a free creative project where you can learn about all aspects of theatre-making. It's a great way to meet new friends, build confidence, develop new skills and have the creative freedom to express your ideas. Throughout the project you’ll experience different roles in theatre from performing to backstage, gain an Arts Award qualification and work together to create your own production.

We're looking for young people who are enthusiastic, keen to work collaboratively and can commit to the duration of the project until November. As well as the regular Monday sessions, young people will be given opportunities to take part in rehearsals and workshops in the summer holidays and outside of term-time.

Please read through our Covid-19 safety measures here before booking a place.
