During the autumn term in 2020, we were extremely lucky to have worked with London-based emerging playwright Dan Berridge.
Dan wrote an original short play for both our Senior groups, which they performed and recorded via Zoom.
Dan dialled into our Seniors Zoom call for a "Meet and Greet" and had a Q&A with the young people.
"2020 was a challenge for us all and more so than ever the arts are critical for young people to be able to connect, have space to be creative and have fun. When I heard about this project I jumped at the opportunity to share ideas of community and artistic expression in a time where young people need it the most. I cannot wait to see what the Senior group do with the text”.

THE LUCKY OYSTER
AUTUMN 2020 - 6PM GROUP
For the whole of the autumn 2019 term, we rehearsed for our first full-scale public performance from the whole of Stretford Children's Theatre (juniors & seniors groups). We presented 3 public performances to sell-out audiences. All the children and young people had an excellent experience, with many local people volunteering to create the costumes, set, hair and make-up, chaperoning, and front of house duties including box office, selling programmes and refreshments.
