OUTREACH is a fantastic opportunity for potential wgytc members to work with staff, get to know current students, and get to know how the Company works, before taking part in a full residential course. The classes are open to anyone aged 11-21.
Performance students will work with a range of tutors on all elements of performance work, and production students will work with experienced tutors to learn about prop making, stage management, costume making, sound, lighting and more. If you're not sure if you'd prefer to be on the stage or backstage, you can try both!
We'll be returning this term with our digital classes, you can choose from a range of activities, just sign up to the ones you're interested in!
There is no fee, although if you'd like to donate to the company you can find more info here.
