hey! hello! Welcome!
This is Grow Your Own Theatre where we give you seeds of inspiration, YOU get to decide what happens next, and we'll help you get your stories growing.
So... you want to share a story, an idea, a plan?
Maybe you love drama at school -making scenes, creating characters and want to do more?
You want to make a show from scratch, and perform it to friends, family and local community?
Come on in!
Latest news - 13th April 2017
I am EXCITED! Grow Your Own Theatre is back for 2017!
Seedlings are back with not one, but TWO sessions a month - one for 3-5yrs and one for 6-8yrs at The Mill again (hurrah - we love The Mill). Can't wait to make dragons and meet dinosaurs and climb mountains and press big red buttons with you all!
22nd April - Escape from the Zoo
6th and 20th May - Secret Gardens
If you are 9-18yrs old you can join the Youth Theatre here - we start on 3rd May, making a mini-show. Make impossible inventions - and the stories to go with them, then see your work exhibited as part of the E17 Art Trail in June...
For the E17 Art Trail in June, I am creating an inventors workshop - exhibiting your ideas and also space to drop in and make stuff. Free! All ages!
For June/July, we are collaborating with Focus CIC (who have funded us), which means it will be FREE to attend for 11-14yrs or 14-18yrs (and I can offer some subsidized places for May too). If you'd like to sign up for the May project or June (or both!), please book here.
...and beyond? We will continue in September and who knows?!
You can also contact me if you have ideas or want me to give support to your project - firstname.lastname@example.org or 0774 034 3240 and I'd be delighted to hear from you!
