In September 2008 we launched our Young Company Hubs. Working in partnership with a range of youth organisations, schools and voluntary groups the Hubs offer weekly dance and drama workshops for young people who are not able to access our Young Company activity at our Production and Learning centre, at TR2. Over the last few years we have worked with young people from Honicknowle, Ernesettle, Weston Mill, Barne Barton, North Prospect, West Park, Efford, Stonehouse and St Budeaux.
We currently have Hubs groups at four partner schools:
- Tuesdays: All Saints Academy
- Wednesday: Saltash.net and Plymouth School of Creative Arts
- Thursdays: Tor Bridge High and Marine Academy
The Hubs seek to increase confidence, self-esteem and aspiration for the young people involved. The groups are networked with each other, and with the broader Young Company, through joint trips to the theatre and informal performances at the end of each term. Young people taking part have the opportunity to complete Bronze Arts Awards and many go on to get involved in further projects at the Theatre Royal including Young Company productions in the Drum.
If you would like more information about the Young Company Hubs please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 01752 230315.
