How funding helps

Neston Theatre School will be performing at the Leverhulme Drama Festival in April 2014. We will be creating a new play for the under 12s to compete with. If anyone would like to have a challenge for their child and be involved in a prestigious festival and the experience of working with professional actors/directors/writers, then come and join us.  The play will be performed at the Gladstone Theatre (and hopefully a venue in Neston).

The project is being directed/scripted by Mike Lockley.  Natasha Symms will direct/choreograph the show and Samantha Giblin will produce the show and help with the ensemble direction.  The play will take the form of an ensemble with every child involved in the devising and staging of the play.  Devising so far has been influenced by the works of William Shakespeare.  The cast is supported by youth volunteers Jonathan Stevens, (12) Jessica Astbury (14) and Lucy Mothersdale (17) - all experienced members of InterACT Youth Theatre.  They bring their own performance experience at The Lowry, with the National Theatre Connections programme, to the rehearsal room to help and mentor the younger children.

Discounts are available for low income families.  Fees and funds raised are used for the staging of the project.   LATC would like to thank Adactus Housing Association for their funding support for this project.  This local housing association has agreed for fund twenty weeks at rehearsal venue hire at the NC&YC.  This is of great help to the project and really enables LATC to continue its discount scheme so that we can accommodate as many children as possible.
