Our Programme

Theatre Skills

We have a focus on developing performance skills throughout the term. Our aim is to improve confidence and ability in acting and performance. We want our participants to be able to take newfound confidence back into their daily life. 

Meeting New People 

Theatre creates spaces to meet new people and make new friends. We want to create social spaces for adults to come together and socialise as well as perform. 

Performing Shows

We want to give our participants some of the best experiences of performing. There's nothing like that buzz before a curtain swings open. Our aim is to widen opportunities for performance throughout the year.
