Youth Theatre Takes the Lead

Every summer from 2012 – 2017 ArtsLink worked with Actiontrack Performance Company to deliver a week long immersive theatre experience for 11 – 18 year olds. Each year, starting from scratch, the group worked on ideas, wrote song lyrics, choreographed dances, developed, played and sang songs, developed the script, made costumes and props, rehearsed and finally delivered an amazing show on the Friday night which included six Acts and lasted for over one hour. This is a wonderful example of team work, creative thinking, collaboration, resourcefulness, and exploring talent which produced many positive outcomes for those taking part including new friendships, increased confidence and a platform for expression. With more funding we could run these weeks again.
