Black Sheep Young Company is an opportunity for people between the ages of 13-18 years, who have a passion for performing, to work together to participate and create new theatre. The company meets weekly exploring a variety of theatre techniques; styles and plays.
We are very passionate about supporting and developing the next generation of performers and artists. With our Young Company, we want to produce new theatre performers and makers offering professional-style training in an inclusive safe environment.
