The company’s first production will be BLUE STOCKINGS by Jessica Swales in early September. This thought-provoking play follows the story of young women in 1896 fighting for the right to graduate, and has relevance to today’s society and the constant fight for equality.

Auditions: Thur 24th June The information and workshop day will help people to prepare. Production date: Wed 1st to Sat 4th September

HYC will then continue from September with weekly sessions. These will assist young people wanting to develop their performance skills and get involved in all aspects of the running of a theatre. There will be opportunity for small scale performances throughout the year, as well as working towards a further full-scale production.
