WORKING AS A PARTNER ORGANISATION WITH NATIONAL YOUTH THEATRE 

AUDITIONS ACCESS FUND 

We're delighted to announce that the Theatre for Life CIC Youth Theatre group has been selected as a partner organisation and venue.


The National Youth Theatre's Auditions Access Fund supported by Hugh Bonneville


As part of the National Youth Theatre's ongoing commitment to outreach and access, they have launched a new Auditions Access Fund, supported by NYT Alumnus and Patron Hugh Bonneville. The grant of £37,500 will support free participation in workshops and auditions over three years at 30 schools and youth groups around Great Britain which have lost drama provision. 

If you're a young person aged 14-25 local to the area who wishes to take part in the free workshop and audition, you can apply to take part here
 

 YOUTH THEATRE PRODUCTION 2019

 
‘Silent Mind’ is an interactive theatre piece which will showcase our actors creative journeys and exploration into mental health awareness through a devised style of performance. We want to ultimately create a ‘Silent Mind’ for both actor and audience member, free from anxiety and feelings of low self esteem. We will be embedding coping strategies such as meditation and breathing work within the body of the piece to encourage our audience members to focus on creating their own ‘Silent Mind’.

Michelle is an incredible teacher, director and person. She honestly allowed me to grow as a performer to such an extent that it is becoming my career. Her skills within theatre and building confidence are outstanding and she is the perfect person to guide you through your training!

There is no doubt in my mind that I would not be where I am in life, both personally and professionally, without the time and dedication that Michelle put in when I was her student. An incredibly creative and talented director and teacher, Michelle continues to inspire me several years later. The creative work she produces is outstanding time after time. She has a talent for bringing out the best in people, regardless of background, experience or confidence. Cannot recommend enough.
