Giving Community A Voice

After the success of The Four Winds last year, a project we delivered in collaboration with the National Theatre, we’re excited to share our new community theatre project, Giving Community A Voice.

Thanks to a grant from Arts Council England, supported by funding from our local Area Board, this project is your opportunity to get creative, meet new people and most importantly, have your voice heard.

Working in collaboration with industry professionals, to create a story that you want to tell. Discover the world of theatre through workshops, creative games, and performance. It doesn’t matter if you have been involved with drama before. This is open to anyone 13 and over, looking for a new experience and an opportunity to join a community of like-minded members who want to share their stories and perform in their hometown.

Saili Katebe, local writer, and performer will be joining us as facilitator and writer on this exciting new project.

Through these initial weekly workshops, you will work together to create a piece of theatre informed by the experiences of those participating. This will then be performed by you, the company, in Trowbridge later in the year.

We’re also keen to hear from young people interested in working in stage design, sound, lighting, and wardrobe. We are offering mentoring opportunities with the professional creative team, so, get in touch if you’d like to hear more; [email protected]

Weekly Wednesday workshops will take place at St Augustine’s College (drama studio) Wingfield Rd, Trowbridge BA14 9EN.

13 – 17 years | 5pm-6.15pm
18 and over | 6.30pm – 8.30pm

These weekly sessions are free and begin on Wednesday 13th March.

If you’d like to join us, you can book your place here.
