They are all interested in making new work, exploring their opinions and views, and every single one of them has mentioned the ambition to write their own plays.
We are going to be starting work on a new piece that will be performed in December (date and time TBC). It will be a site-specific piece which will give our young performers the opportunity to use a variety of skills and engage with an audience in a completely different way to traditional theatre.
"The Black Sheep Young Company members have also asked to go on theatre trips and have the opportunity to engage with other performance artists, which is great to hear!"
The rehearsal room was vibrantly full of laughter and enthusiasm. Sharing new exercises, allowing opinions to be expressed and opportunities for young people to develop their performance voice. I'm thrilled to be leading the Black Sheep Young Company and we would like to invite many other young people to get involved too!
Regular sessions take place on Monday (during term time) between 6:00pm and 7:30pm at The Old Bath House, Wolverton. Payment terms are flexible, and there is no joining fee. We are currently looking into bursary schemes.
We are also offering free taster sessions to any young person to see if they like the structure of our workshops and if they want to get involved with the company. We can welcome new members at any point in the term.
For more information on Black Sheep Young Company, Do give me a call on 01908 804257 or drop me a message using the form at the bottom of this page and let's see how I can help you. I can't wait to see what great work we can do together and the impact it is going to have on their well being and self-motivation.
Until next time ...
