Do you live in the Bolton area? Interested in theatre? Aged 14-21 (up to 25 for young people with additional needs)?

Learn the building blocks of playwriting across five weeks and work towards creating your own short play. Led by writer Naomi Sumner Chan.

Participants are expected to attend all five sessions. 

The Academy is a 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 creative freedom to express your ideas.

From October to January we’re hosting a series of free workshops, and from February you’ll have the opportunity to work as part of a company to make an original piece of theatre. Sign up for as many workshops as you wish, and you will take home an Arts Award qualification after taking part.

Virtual workshops will take place over Zoom so access to a device with Wi-Fi, camera and speaker is necessary.
