Joining Studio Theatre West gives you the opportunity to act, create theatre sets, costumes, props and puppets, to learn new skills with professional artists, meet new people and perform on stage.
Studio Theatre is our theatre programme for adults with learning disabilities and autism which runs once a week, on Wednesdays, throughout the academic year.
Participants join this programme to discover and develop theatre skills. The group work together to create original theatre productions which are performed in our local theatres.
There are many different elements to creating the theatre productions, from research, to writing, to set design, to music and performing. Individuals choose whether they would like to be involved in all of these elements or focus on particular ones.
The weekly sessions take a multi art form approach; participants work with professional, experienced artists to learn a range of skills, including drama, researching, writing and puppetry.
The productions are often a result of research into local history or events as this is something the group are particularly interested in.
