Taster Sessions at the Grand Theatre Blackpool

Tuesday, 29th September 2015

Blackpool Grand Theatre is launching a brand new theatre company for young people aged 14-19 years. This is not just any young Theatre company, Blackpool Grand have become part of the National Theatre’s prestigious Connections 500 programme.

Connections is the National Theatre’s nationwide youth theatre. Each year they provide support to a network of youth theatres all over the country to stage new plays written especially for young people by some of theatre’s most exciting playwrights. In 2016 the National Theatre is marking 21 years of Connections by having 500 young companies all taking part in theatres across the UK.

If you are aged between 14-19 years and have an interest in any aspect of theatre, you are invited to be a part of this new company – completely free of charge.

Blackpool Grand Theatre National Connections Young Company will meet up on Wednesday evenings 6.30pm-8.30pm in The STUDIO, plus during February Half-Term holiday 2016, to create a piece of theatre. Those who are interested in performance, theatre design (including lighting and sound), stage management, marketing and all aspects of theatre-making, are all encouraged to apply.
