For young people aged 11-14

10 weekly sessions

£50 per term. Bursaries and part bursaries available*

A fantastic opportunity for young people (aged 11-14) to work with a professional Theatre Director from Birmingham Rep. Once a week, (February-May), young people will meet after school at The New Art Gallery Walsall to build an ensemble (group) and create a performance. They will be inspired by themes in the the Gallery’s artworks and exhibitions, their own interests, and issues important in their lives.

During the 10-week programme young people will develop confidence and skills in script writing, devising, physical theatre and scenography before applying what they have learned to the creation of a site-specific performance. Friends, family and members of the public will be invited along to the Gallery to see the final performance at the end of the 10 weeks.
