GREENWICH THEATRE this week announced a ground-breaking programme of workshops for children and young people for autumn.
The programme, which ranges from a tour of some local schools to an international visit from an acclaimed Rwandan youth theatre company, represents the most ambitious participatory programme yet from the venue.
Activities begin this September with three exciting opportunities for young people from the borough. The theatre will work with writer and director Susie McKenna, composer Steve Edis and five local teenagers on the development of a new musical dealing with issues of conflict and migration.
In preparation for Utopia? the theatre is inviting local teenagers to help put the finishing touches to the show and join the cast in a performance.
September also sees the launch of Sing Up Greenwich to offer a programme of singing workshops for over 2000 children, working with finalists from Last Choir Standing. In October, for half-term, the team at the theatre has announced opportunities for young people to join them and take to the stage. Then in November there will be a unique opportunity for 20 teenagers to write an all-new mini musical in just two and a half days, before performing the new work on stage at the theatre.
All this plus linked events, comedy shows, Elizabeth and Raleigh (pictured), Stewart Lee’s (Jerry Springer The Opera) new comedy production and pantomime.
