Get involved with our bursary winners – and The National Theatre!
Happy New Year everyone.
As you may know we regularly make funds available to local organisations, groups and individuals to further theatre and theatre skills in the region. One of those – The Mo Pearce Bursary – was awarded to Hunts Youth Theatre (HYT) this year to help with their participation in the National Theatre’s Connections Project for 2019.
The annual project brings together a number of youth theatres from around the country and places are highly sought after. HYT has been asked to perform a specially commissioned play entitled “Flesh” by Rob Drummond. The play is to be performed three times in Huntingdon in early March and then at the Garage Theatre (Norwich Playhouse) on April 4th 2019.
HYT have asked us to promote the fact that there is an opportunity for young actors aged 13 and over to get involved in this exciting and prestigious project. No previous experience is required to join this inclusive theatre group and anybody interested in the project should contact HYT via their Facebook page, online at www.huntingdonyouththeatre.co.uk or by calling Dominic Whitehead on 01480 380297 for details.
