The Young Rep Company was formed in 2012 by Oldham Coliseum Theatre’s Learning and Engagement Department. The company produce high quality children’s theatre based on popular children’s books, touring performances for families across Oldham and Tameside in public spaces like libraries or galleries. The company was awarded a finalists’ prize for Best Group at the Pride in Oldham Awards and three National Awards at The Family Arts Festival, including Best Family Event.
The Young Rep tours are free and usually take place during half term holidays. To be informed of upcoming dates please send your name and contact details to LED@Coliseum.org.uk and pop ‘Keep me Informed’ into the subject line. Also follow us on social media – Twitter and Facebook to find out when the shows are on.
Community groups take part in a specially tailored programme to create a piece of theatre; building confidence and creativity whilst giving voice to stories from across Greater Manchester. The work is shared at an annual event at the theatre, promoting collaboration between groups of different ages and backgrounds.
In addition to the Community Partnership Scheme, we design and deliver a range of bespoke programmes, working with partners to address issues in the community in new and exciting ways.
To find out more about becoming a Community Partner or ways we can work in your community contact Carly Henderson, Head of Learning and Engagement, on firstname.lastname@example.org or 0161 785 7008.
