Our Playhouse Young Company returns for another term on Zoom!

Across the online 8-week term, our Playhouse Young Company participants will come together as an ensemble to devise a new and original piece of theatre, celebrating the also-rans of well-known stories from literature.

Through fun and friendly weekly workshops exploring performance, playwriting and improvisation, participants will take charge of creating their own characters and routes into a narrative, developing their confidence to creatively collaborate with others, whilst building on individual performance skills in voice, movement and expression.

Our term will conclude with an online sharing to an invited audience of family and friends.

For more information on our Playhouse Young Company Summer Term sessions for 17- to 25-year-olds, please email our workshop leader, Jo Noble:

Our Playhouse Young Company sessions take place using the Zoom video conferencing platform. You will need to create an account and download this app onto your device in order to access our sessions. It is recommended that participants explore the use of this platform before the first session. For more information, visit:

Each session will require a Meeting ID and a password. This will be shared with participants via email up to 1 hour before each Playhouse Young Company session is due to begin.

To support participants during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the price for the Summer Term will be reduced to £50. (Usually £70). Bursary places are available – please see the Bursary tab above to learn how to apply.

Upon signing up for our Summer Term sessions, participants will receive a link to a digital Participant Pack, which must be read and completed ahead of the first session.
