stage@leeds Youth Theatre
“Creativity is as important as literacy” (Sir Ken Robinson)
stage@leedsyoungcompany is our brand new youth theatre situated in the stage@leeds theatre complex at the University of Leeds. We decided to start a youth theatre due to the fall in drama provision in schools and the belief that participation in Theatre and Performance provides key skills for life and should therefore be available to everyone no matter what their background or circumstances. With this in mind we have designed stage@leedsyoungcompany to be a fun, creative space where commitment, support and a collaborative spirit will allow participants to explore their own creativity without fear or prejudice.
The stage@leeds young company pilot project has finished for this academic year but will return full time in September 2019.
In the meantime look out for the stage@leedsyoungcompany summer project taking place this august. Details to follow…
