Nottingham Playhouse launches two new theatre companies

Saturday 30th June 2012

Nottingham Playhouse has a strong commitment to developing the emerging artists of the future as well as offering acting opportunities to people who just want to have fun. So, this autumn we are launching two new in-house theatre companies.

Playhouse Young Company

Playhouse Young Company will be open to 18–25 year olds with previous acting experience and/or training. Participants will develop their drama skills and perform in a full-scale studio production in 2013. The first term of the programme runs weekly on Tuesday evenings, 7:30pm to 9:30pm, from 25 Sep–4 Dec and first auditions take place on Tuesday 17th July.

Playhouse Ensemble

For those of all ages, with or without any previous experience, who are interested in theatre and want to have a go at performing, then Playhouse Ensemble is the perfect match. We invite everyone from 9 – 95 years to join us, have fun, meet new people, and work together towards a performance in 2013. The first term of Playhouse Ensemble runs weekly on Wednesday evenings, 7pm to 9pm, from 19 Sep – 28 Nov.

Summer Schools

In addition to the two new companies we are launching, throughout the summer we also offer Summer Schools to suit all ages and abilities.

Giles Croft, Artistic Director of Nottingham Playhouse, welcomes the addition of the two new companies: “This is an exciting time for us with so many more opportunities for people to engage with our work. Both of these new projects build upon the successes of recent years and are wonderful ways of bringing new ideas and energy to Nottingham Playhouse.”’
