After a whole year of working with Growtheatre it is nice to reflect on the wonderful time I have been able to share with the Youth Theatre facilitators and the participants! Working with all three groups on a Thursday evening is a fantastic way of learning how to interact with different age groups and also see just how developed the groups are right from Juniors, through Intermediates and into the Seniors.
Being a volunteer with the theatre group has also allowed my own learning to expand vastly. Working with drama and nature at the same time has opened my eyes to whole other ways of developing and exploring theatre, whilst playing lots of games and having loads and loads of fun every week! As well as studying drama and other elements of performance, Growtheatre also offers a unique opportunity to get involved with and learn new skills such as design work, whittling, building fires and many more! Activities in which I love assisting in with each group!
Growtheatre is like no other company I have worked with before and each week is filled with brand new and exciting experiences and opportunities, a year on and I can’t wait for many more sessions to come with the Theatre group!
