Led byTor Theatres’ David Reakes plus Special Guests
Acting, drama, games, Improvisation and all things theatre!
A request for more theatre and activities for young people was a theme in the recent round of Axbridge, Cheddar, and Polden consultations. So Seed is bringing youth theatre to the Cheddar Valley.
The groups provide safe spaces for young people to create, explore and find their voice through Theatre and the Arts. Using professional artists and experienced facilitators they take theatre into the community, challenging traditional notions of ‘theatre’ as an inaccessible or elitist.
Two age groups
Cheddar Youth Theatre Group
Are you 6-11 years old and love performing? Come along and explore devised theatre at Cheddar’s all-new Youth Theatre Group, in association with Somerset Youth Theatre, Wassail and Tor Theatre. At Cheddar Youth Theatre you will have fun, make new friends and build confidence. New members are always welcome, and no experience is necessary – although a willingness to play is essential!
Are you are aged 11-18, this is an excellent opportunity to push yourself to the next level. Be a part of new and original devised work, by and for young people in Cheddar and Cheddar Valley, in partnership with professional Artists and Companies.
No experience is necessary – although a willingness to play is essential!
