One of the hardest things about this period of lockdown has been the inability to be in contact with our Young Company participants. We have had to postpone all our workshops and sessions in line with the current government guidelines ...

Although these will be up and running as soon as it is safe to do so, in these stressful times, we have needed to adapt and create new opportunities that suit the current climate. Today, we are very happy to announce that we will be hosting our Black Sheep Young Company online on a weekly basis.
"These sessions are open to any young person between the ages of 13-18!"
We want to encourage as many young people to get involved as possible. In the sessions, we will be exploring drama and performance skills in creative and innovative ways. Why not become part of a new movement of young theatre-makers?
Get involved with other young people to produce new work including video content and performances. All of this will be in a safe and secure online space, where members will be able to connect and interact and feel involved.
We want to encourage young people to feel motivated and look forward to the future, inspiring them to use their own creativity to do so. Once we can come together again, we will celebrate the resilience of young people and their adaptability.
"Sessions will take place on Monday's 6:00pm-7:00pm on Zoom!"
There is no fee to attend our Young Company workshops, but we do ask that you donate something to our Hug In A Mug GoFundMe page, however small the amount as every penny goes towards saving Bar Bar Black Sheep.
Until next time ...

About Georgia Tillery-Randak ...
Georgia grew up in Milton Keynes interested in drama and performance from a young age. She left MK to attend LIPA (Liverpool Institute for Performing Arts) where she studied Community Drama.
During her time in Liverpool, she absorbed the Arts and Culture scene of the city and feel in love with vibrancy and diversity of the arts there. She also studied at ITI (International Theatre Institute) in Singapore where she observed and researched mime and physical theatre as part of a placement.
On returning to Milton Keynes after graduating, along with Danny, they set up Black Sheep Collective CIC in order to fill the gap in the arts scene of Milton Keynes.
Since setting up the organisation, Georgia has written and directed several fringe theatre shows including 'Where's Alice?' and 'Who's Alice?' a twisted adaptation of Alice in Wonderland and most recently 'The Cagebirds' by David Campton. She has established her own style of work nurturing and guiding young talent. She manages and facilitates the Black Sheep creative learning and community outreach program both in Milton Keynes and Northampton.
Georgia is always striving to push the boundaries with her work, allowing opportunities for an audience to question and challenge their beliefs also with an alternative dark twist.
