Are We There Yet?

Theatre for and with children.

A month on… — November 28, 2015

A month on…

A month on from the premiere of This Is Not An Office, and we have lots to report! During the On The Verge Festival, we worked with over 250 children, performed 9 times in 4 days and received some fantastic feedback.

96% of children who took part in our show rated it as excellent (with our family friendly game!) whilst adult feedback included notes such as:

“Absolutely brilliant! Actors, scenery, the interactive nature of the play and the story was great!”

“Excellent story involving all the children with a really good feel ending.”

“Brilliant, imaginative, well delivered. Thank you very much.”

We are looking to bring the new and improved show to Manchester in Easter 2016 – we hope to see you there!

If you have any feedback on our project, please contact Sarah at arewethereyettheatre@gmail.com

‘We worry endlessly about exam results and yet squeeze the arts from the curriculum, so that opportunities to learn an instrument or go to the theatre are not an entitlement for every child, but activities that are only within the reach of the privileged few.’ Lyn Gardner

We’re trying to do a little to stop this cycle…
Today we start workshops in primary schools around Liverpool! We’re providing a free workshop per class and they will attend our show for a reduced price in October.

This is Not An Office update

Our show and community work is coming along quite quickly now. We can’t announce everything but we have been lucky to have some many generous funders, as you can see on our crowdfunder, our prop sourcing is coming along nicely and we’re in the Unity Theatre’s programme!

On The Verge festival is now only 2 months away, so the whole team is working very hard. We’re currently working on soundscapes, costume design and marketing materials – we’ll keep you updated!

O2 Think Big meeting — July 25, 2015

O2 Think Big meeting

This week, our director and producer, otherwise known as both Sarahs drove to Birmingham to accept the generous funding from O2 Think Big.
Think Big fund a wide range of community projects designed and produced by young people aged 15 to 25. Not only did we receive our funding and see the sights of Birmingham’s one way systems, we also met a lot of really exciting young people.
These included teenagers who were using digital forums to engage young people with alternative careers, a duo dedicated to representing young people across Wales in government and a group making films in London about discrimination and ethnic minorities.
As you can see, it was pretty varied. It’s inspiring to meet so many people who are dedicated to making positive change in their community.
We are still crowdfunding to match this donation and are making lots of progress with props and set. If you can donate anything, it’d be greatly appreciated! http://www.crowdfunder.co.uk/are-we-there-yetThinkBigLogo
