Little Angel’s Youth Board

  • 22
  • Apr

Little Angel Theatre invites young people aged 13-16 to join its new Youth Board.

On the board you will explore Little Angel Theatre – who it is and what it does across all of the departments, paying particular attention to the roles that young people may not know about or have encountered previously. You will hear first-hand from the people currently in the roles as well as trying out aspects of this job in both hypothetical and real life situations.

In addition, Youth Board members will have the opportunity to implement some of the skills/work areas that they are most interested in. This may be by planning a workshop or event; contributing to real Little Angel outputs, or working to devise or create your own piece of work.

Running throughout the programme, the theatre will work with you in each session to get you arts work ready. Part of this will involve preparing you to achieve Arts Award accreditation, and also preparing you for employment through practical skill acquisition such as CV writing, work experience but also interpersonal and interview skills.
