Come and spend an afternoon creating innovative theatre alongside our Youth Theatre members in our unique inclusive environment.
Through a series of workshop games we will work together to create new pieces that draws upon your ideas about the world around you. If you are aged 13 to 17 and want to share and develop your passion for writing, performance, movement, music or simply have something to say and are ready to listen, then come along and get a flavour of what it’s like to be a member of our Youth Theatre here at Chickenshed.
Participants of The Weekend Itch will be invited for a week long Summer Scratch event which will take place 24 – 28 July.
Time: 1pm - 6pm
Chickenshed’s Youth Theatre meet weekly in our working theatrical space and are given the opportunity to develop a range of theatre-making techniques. With devising at the core of every project, our Youth Theatre members have the opportunity to be part of creating authentic and innovative theatre as well as gaining access to further training in many areas of the company’s work. These include; sign language, dance classes, vocal classes, as well as supporting our Children’s Theatre.
