Support our work with young people, including our regular Shine theatre groups out in the community, Nottingham Playhouse Young Company, Critics Circle and work experience opportunities.

Through these experiences, we hope to give the hundreds of children we work with a chance to play, create, grow in confidence and learn life-enhancing skills as well as feeling a sense of belonging. Most of the children we work with have previously had little or no experience of the arts.

“Starting this group gave me a new opportunity to make friends, to have a social life which I previously didn’t have…Shine bought out the confidence I didn’t have, without it I wouldn’t be who I am now.”
Louisa, Bulwell Youth Theatre Member, 16.
