Toonspeak has dreamed of having a Young Company for over 10 years, and thanks to RFO funding from Creative Scotland we are finally able to make this dream a reality.
A Young Company is a smaller group of participants who meet regularly to explore new work and develop their own material. They will have the opportunity to take their work to festivals and more, bridging the gap between youth theatre and professional work and opening up creative license to make theatre that is relevant to them.
Directed by Toonspeak Associate Artist Steven Leach with Co-Director Jasmine Main, the first members have been selected through audition process. There was a high demand, we met so many amazing young people, some of whom we already new but we also met some newbies.
We are so super thrilled at the group chosen, they meet weekly at Toonspeak on Saturdays, showing a great level of commitment and they are getting wired right in!
We are laying the foundations of the Young Company with the following group, and there will be more spaces opening up further in the year.
Watch this space for updates!
