For ages 12-18
Next term: Wed 21 September 6pm – 7pm
(No session on Wed 26 October)

Step into the theatre and play a part in the process of devising new performances alongside other like-minded creative young people.

Working with professional theatre director Jenny Sheehan, participants will have the opportunity to:

  • Develop their creative writing, acting and directing skills for theatre
  • Explore play scripts and devise new performances from scratch
  • Play with improvisation, storytelling, physical theatre and clowning techniques
  • Gain an understanding of Lighting, Sound and Set Design elements
  • And prepare to present your work on The Core’s stage at a public Showcase performance in November.

Core Create members will also get to take part in all other projects at The Core including:

  • Attending Theatre shows and meeting the makers of visiting performances for free
  • Working on special events like GROW Festival and Mardi Gras
  • Doing work experience with the technical, marketing and creative departments at The Core.

There is no audition process and people of all experience levels are welcome to join.

If you want to be a part of life at the theatre and want to try out all aspects that bring a performance together then this group is for you.
