Resident Artists Workshops

12 Hour Theatre Project

Join us for the final of our Resident Artist Workshop series – 12 Hour Theatre Project is for young artists aged 7 – 25.


The 12 Hour Theatre Project is a short, intensive and creative opportunity for young people to collaborate, devise and perform a new theatre piece, which will increase their dramatic training and performance abilities and expand their practical skillset.   Young people who participate will be given a set piece of material and guidelines but will then have the free rein to write, direct and perform a 10-minute play in response to the material. Young people involved will participate as actors, directors, sound and lighting, stage management and more!
