We’re currently recruiting for our next Academy company. From May to November, you’ll work with 15 other young people to make your own piece of theatre.

We’re looking for young people who are enthusiastic, keen to work collaboratively with others and can commit to taking part on Monday evenings for the whole 6 months. You don’t need to have any previous experience in theatre or performing.

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.

Sign up to this taster workshop to find out more!

We are planning for our sessions to take place in our brand new theatre. We'll be working within Covid secure measures which you can find here. Please take a moment to read through these before you book.
