About 15 young people are standing in rows and looking at the camera, mostly smiling. They are indoors with a row of windows behind them. Their ages vary, with many of them looking around 5 to 10 and a few older ones.

The group! And yes, everyone gave permission for their picture to be used.

Discovering & making theatre

Exploring creativity through discovering and making theatre is the perfect way for young people to begin to developing skills that will see them excel in later life. Not only will they gain confidence in expressing themselves but they’ll also become leaders, creators and imaginative team players.

This weekly class from Nottingham’s international theatre company will see participants gain knowledge and understanding of different theatrical forms from throughout theatre history. They’ll practically develop performance skills, experience the many opportunities the arts can provide, explore plays, create their own work inspired by the world around them and, most of all, have fun!
