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!
You can come along and see the magic our young artists can whip together in 12 hours! Limited tickets still available – all tickets are free but booking is essential.
