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 based on the personal experiences of all those participating, the project will also provide an insight into the world of theatre, through workshops, creative games, and performance. And it really doesn’t matter if you have been involved with drama before. The project is open to anyone aged 13 and over who would like to explore a new experience and grasp the opportunity to join a company of like-minded people who want to share their authentic stories and help create another dynamic piece of work to, once again, bring pride to their hometown.

Saili Katebe, local writer and performer, will be one of the workshop facilitators before going on to write the stage play that will has multiple performances scheduled for Emmanuel’s Yard in the early autumn.

“At the workshops, you’ll have the opportunity to meet new people, have your voice heard and share your ideas completely free of any judgement  – you’ll also have lots of fun!” – Workshop Manager

Trowbridge Town Hall Trust is also keen to hear from young people interested in working in stage design, sound, lighting, and wardrobe, with mentoring offered by members of the professional production team. Please get in touch if you’d like to be involved; [email protected]
