About Creation Young Company
Creation Young Company is a group of theatre makers aged 14-19 who create work that is inspired by the world around them. Our aim with Young Company is to provide a more serious, focussed version of Drama Club for our teens who wish to pursue acting or theatre-making to a more advanced level.
From Autumn Term Young Company rehearsals will take place on Wednesday evenings via Zoom from 6-8pm, and is aimed at 14-19 year olds.
- Provide students with a more detailed and intensive approach to theatre-making and acting, in a more advanced version of our usual Drama Club. For this reason, it is also open to older students.
- Provide students with creative leadership and professional development skills that will serve them well at university and beyond.
- Allow our students to truly channel their creativity and to work as a ‘company’ to create their own theatre. The group will be led by a professional theatre-maker who will guide and advise, but the Young Company show will be entirely devised by the group themselves. Inspired by a classic text or story, the Young Company will take the themes and content of the original text to whatever degree they wish to, and will devise their own production.
- The Young Company will lead to potential links to performances and work associated with the production side of Creation Theatre. Young Company will be Creation’s first port of call if we ever require young actors for one-off performances or fund-raising events, and they will also be the first to be offered opportunities to volunteer as an usher or an internship with Creation Theatre.
