It was lovely to welcome back the Black Sheep Young Company to face-to-face sessions. The lockdown has been hard for everyone especially those who are part of creative groups, so it was a real joy to offer in-person sessions ...
The Black Sheep Young Company meet on Monday evenings between 6:00pm and 7:30pm at Bar Bar Black Sheep in Wolverton!
We are following all Government Guidelines around social distancing and had fun exploring the area outside on the square, a perfect platform for arts and performance. The young people have stayed committed, creative and supported one another throughout the last lockdown.
"Their hard work has really paid off!"
We will be presenting their final film adaptation of NT Connections play 'Look Up!' by Andrew Muir at the Royal and Derngate virtual festival this weekend. The film was produced remotely in the young people's own homes. The piece was then stitched together to present their vision of a futuristic world of burnout and protest.
The work of the young people demonstrates the true meaning of being a collective and the power of young people. We hope you will join us in supporting our members. Access to the performance will be available through Royal and Derngate Theatre.
"This term we are offering free taster sessions to anyone interested in joining the Black Sheep Young Company who's aged 13 to 18!"
The group meet on Monday evenings between 6:00pm and 7:30pm at Bar Bar Black Sheep in Wolverton. New members are always welcome. We will be working towards a new piece devised by the Black Sheep Young Company themselves with a performance at the end of term.
It's called 'When this is Over' and is an exciting process giving young people the opportunity to tell their story and share their feelings of the future and beyond.
A new drama group for those aged 9 to 12 years old is coming soon.
Until next time ...

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.
