Letchworth Arts Centre By Letchworth Arts Centre

We will offer young people in Letchworth the opportunity to work with West End theatre professionals/designers to create content for a West End Show to be staged in Letchworth in Christmas 2015.

This project is preparing for fundraising. Click Like to show your support, or Follow for updates on this project's journey.

The project will work with children from age 10 to 18 years and will provide amazing opportunities for the young people that they would not normally find in the town. The professionals who are scheduled to participate are the cutting edge of professional theatre both in producing it, designing it and performing in it. As the project will allow the young people access to work and volunteer in a West End show in Letchworth, this is an opportunity not to be missed. The project has already attracted significant funding from the Royal Opera House Bridge Fund, the Letchworth Garden City Heritage Foundation, the Letchworth Civic Trust and the Arts Council for North Herts. If we are not able meet are target we will loose the £14900 already raised.

What we'll deliver:

  • The older students can work on the design and production or learn set pieces in order to earn a place in the ensemble.
  • The younger students will be involved in choreographing the dances for the West End show in 2015
  • We will hold Open classes through North Herts College for the older performers.
  • We will hold workshops in ten local primary schools, open classes through the Da Vinci School for Creative Enterprise

Why it's a great idea:

If youngsters want to be involved in professional theatre they have to go to a big city. This is the big city coming to Letchworth! We want the young people to have opportunities to further their ambitions and careers here in the town.

Steps to get it done:

  • Many schools have already expressed an interest in being involved so we have the young people.
  • We just need the last bit of funding before our window of opportunity expires.
  • We have all the professionals in place.
