D/deaf-Friendly Youth Theatre

Youth Theatre , Workshops and Learning
Wednesday 26 September 2018 - Wednesday 27 March 2019

Derby Theatre is absolutely thrilled to be launching a D/deaf-Friendly Youth Theatre group this autumn.

The D/deaf-Friendly Youth Theatre group will be a fully accessible theatre group for young people aged 11-18 who are D/deaf, deafened or hard of hearing, and their friends/siblings and will be a perfect opportunity to develop confidence, range of expression and performance skills. The group will work towards creating their own accessible and innovative performance which will be shared as part of a Derby Theatre Family Open Day on Saturday 16 March 2019.

The Youth Theatre will be run and supported by professional practitioners where BSL communication and interpretation will be provided at each session.

The group will run fortnightly over two terms at Derby Theatre. The sessions will run on Wednesdays from 5pm until 6.30pm on the following dates:

Autumn Term: 26 Sep, 10 Oct, 24 Oct, 7 Nov, 21 Nov, 5 Dec

Spring Term: 16 Jan, 30 Jan, 13 Feb, 27 Feb, 13 Mar and 27 Mar

The D/deaf-Friendly Youth Theatre will initially be a two-term project with an ambition of continuing and developing further beyond this period.

The cost to join the group is £35 per term.

Limited places available! Book now online or by calling 01332 59 39 39 or by e-mailing tickets@derbytheatre.co.uk (when booking online, please book using your child's name).
