Headgate Young Company

In the Headgate Young Company (HYC) all performance, production and creative roles will be undertaken by people aged 16-21, with guidance from experienced facilitators and supported by our volunteers.

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.

Weekly Thursday sessions will start on the 16th September. The sessions will be innovative and challenging, and participants will be given the opportunity to develop theatre skills and knowledge across a range of genres. There will be chance to test out ideas, to create and deliver small scale performance opportunities throughout the year – including participation in the Colchester Fringe in October 2021 - as well as working towards another full scale production.

The first term will run for 10 weeks at £5 per week. Places should be booked on a half termly basis (i.e. 5 weeks - £25)
