We hope you are all having an amazing summer holiday so far, spending time with friends and enjoying the sun. September and the start of the Autumn Young Company Term is just around the corner! Here’s a little taste of what we’ve you’ve got to look forward to…
Autumn Term – New and returning groups
The Autumn term will see the return of our regular Young Company workshops, as well as the start of a number of new exciting groups. These include: YC Acting 18 – 25 on Mondays and a Playwriting group taking place at the theatre. We will also be running a short course YC Design – Puppets. Why not start the new academic year with a new YC group too?
Rehearsals for the Young Company production of Buckets are well underway and we can’t wait for the performances from 24th-27th August. Tickets are on sale now so don’t miss this fantastic production about life, death and bucket lists.
Summer Term Showback
At the end of the summer term we brought all of the YC groups together to share their showbacks at The House at Plymouth University. We had 2 fantastic evenings celebrating all of the great work of the Young Company. We’d love to hear what you think, so if you haven’t already completed the survey you can find it here.
Summer Holiday Activities
Our Production and Learning Centre, TR2 has been a hive of activity over the past few weeks. What with the sound of the Musical Theatre Academy ringing through the corridors; Play in a Week flinging shoes up to the moon and Summer Mix workshops introducing young people to drama, dance and design. The Lab was also taken over by star bellied and plain bellied Sneetches as part of our Family Workshops. What a start to the holidays!
