A pilot scheme for budding writers has started in Neston.
The Little Actors Theatre Company has launched a new project called Neston Young Writers.
It will offer six workshop sessions plus a rehearsed reading of the work created.
The cost will only be £1 per session as it will be funded by Neston Town Council.
It is open for 13-19 year olds. Three professional actors are booked to perform the new writing at a rehearsed reading presentation in March and they will be joined by members of Neston’s InterACT Youth Theatre.
Over six sessions, the young people will create a piece of new writing of their own.
If they wish to collaborate they can – it’s up to them how they produce their work. They will be tutored and mentored by Mike Lockley, an actor/scriptwriter.
Mr Lockley runs his own theatre company and is also the drama director for Little Actors’ Theatre Clubs in Neston and Liverpool.
The workshops will take place 7-9pm on Wednesdays at the Neston Community & Youth Centre, on January 13 and 27; February 10 and 24; March 2 and 9; and Sunday, March 20 (2-6pm, rehearsed reading).
The Little Actors Theatre is bringing back its adult tap class from Tuesday, January 12 (10.30am).
The cost is £5 per class with a concessionary rate of £2.50.
