Our work areas

Young People

Last year we helped 8,000 young people go to the theatre, many for the first time in their lives.


We deliver a whole host of creative learning projects with schools. From putting on performances to playwriting.


Every summer we welcome around 500 low-income families onto our Family First Nights programme, helping them to experience a top West End show at an affordable price.


We run a range of creative learning projects and theatre-going experiences which support, educate and empower young people with SEND (special educational needs or disabilities).

Change a life today

For £15, you can help a young person go to the theatre for the very first time.

Sometimes, one trip to the theatre is all it takes to unlock a whole new world of possibilities.
