Northcott Young Company – explore your creativity at Saturday youth theatre

This is the chance to be part of a brand new youth theatre in Exeter.

Here at the Northcott we believe theatre gives young people a stage to reach their personal and creative potential.

Some of our youngsters have recently appeared in the Christmas pantomime alongside veterans of stage and screen.

Our most famous student, Alex Sharp, went on to perform on Broadway and win a prestigious Tony theatre award.

We already run classes during the Easter and summer holidays but now we want to provide a more regular opportunity for around 40 talented young people to make theatre together.

You will have the opportunity to work with like-minded, creative young people to make thought provoking, challenging drama.

Previous experience of acting is not required but the desire and commitment to drama is compulsory.

Where? Roborough Studios, University of Exeter Streatham Campus.

When? Saturdays from April 21st 2018:

11am – 1pm for young people aged between 9 and 12 on April 21st 2018

1.30 – 3.30pm for young people aged between 13 and 16 on April 21st 2018

Cost? £100 for a term of 10 two hour sessions.

The term will culminate in a sharing of work for friends and family.

Young Company members will have opportunities to work with Northcott staff as well as perform on the stage.

The new sessions will be delivered by Lizzie Hedden, head of drama at Dawlish Community College.

Lizzie has a wealth of experience teaching drama and directing creative projects with a range of young people.

She is also part of our team regularly auditioning young people for Northcott produced work.
