Calderdale Young Shorts Schools Performance 2019

Wed 26 Jun, 10:30am at Square Chapel Arts Centre

Tickets: FREE , approx running time: 75 minutes, without interval

Age: 7+

See a spectacular selection of short plays written by primary school children and performed by talented young actors from Beacon Actors Company and Calderdale Theatre School.

Calderdale Young Shorts is a project delivered in partnership by Square Chapel, Calderdale Theatre School, Beacon Actors Company, four local primary schools and Hebden Bridge Arts Festival.  It celebrates the talents and imaginations of children aged 8-11yrs and hopes to inspire them to perhaps become the playwrights, writers or Directors of the future!

From May – June, young actors from Beacon Actors Company are delivering playwriting workshops in four schools: Scout Road Academy, St Mary’s Catholic Primary, Sacred Heart Catholic Primary and Hebden Royd CE Primary.  Children are writing their own short plays and a selection of them are performed on Square Chapel’s stage in a fabulous, mad-cap, cabaret performance.  Expect outrageous characters, innovative costumes, fantastical plots and lots of laughs!

It’s always one of the highlights of our year and certainly not to be missed.

There are two performances on 26 June: the schools performance at Square Chapel at 10.30am followed by a second performance at The Little Theatre in Hebden Bridge at 7pm.  Tickets for The Little Theatre show are not pre-bookable and will be available from The Little Theatre, on the evening of the performance, on the door.

Calderdale Young Shorts is supported with funding from Square Chapel’s Open Door schools programme and the Andrew Lloyd Webber Foundation.

Please note, for the schools performance, seating is unrestricted and school groups are seated together.
