about us

our mission

Our mission is to create vital, vigorous, and exciting theatre with and for children from all backgrounds. We provide an opportunity for young people to realise their imaginative and creative potential and participate fully as actors in theatrical productions, whilst encouraging a lifetime interest in the arts.


We wish to give children a fun experience in a safe, positive, and creative environment, as well as encouraging self-awareness and self-confidence through the process of arts based drama.

This provides children with opportunities to develop communication, concentration, and teamwork skills through participation in theatrical projects.

We consistently aim to encourage children to engage their imagination through the invention of characters, sounds, creatures, and stories based on their own ideas. We strive to continue to involve the participants  in the planning, implementation and evaluation of the projects.
