The Next Generation
Next Gen is our theatre company for young actors aged 12-18. The company is run by Sally Waghorn with help from Naomi Robertson and Jenny Manville.
We put on a production every year and have also started running a series of acting workshops lead by Adam Forde, a professional Director and former Creative Director of the Yvonne Arnaud Youth Theatre.
No experience is necessary to get involved; all we need is enthusiasm. Plays are auditioned but we try and involve as many performers as we can.
Our productions to date have been:
2017 – “The Return of the Next Generation”, a one Act evening of 2 plays, “Ernie’s Incredible Adventures” and “The Cage Birds”.
2018 – “Alice” by Laura Wade, a modern retelling of Alice in Wonderland.
2019 – “Wind in the Willows” by Adam Forde and David Perkins, a musical version of the classic children’s story.
This year we had planned to have another one act evening to enable as many performers to get involved as possible. Unfortunately, our plans are on hold at the moment, but we are hoping to be able to do something in the late Summer.
