GIVE BACK TO THE COMMUNITY
As well as the work on our stages, the Everyman and Playhouse are committed to extending the experience, aspiration and challenge of theatre beyond the stage. Our work in the community provides a meaningful way to give back to the local area whilst presenting your company as a responsible business to staff, clients and the wider community.
Harthill Youth Centre drumming workshop as part of AfroReggae Residency (Aug, 2010)
A touring production that tackled issues of crime, territory and space.
ENDZ toured around Merseyside in April and May 2011, taking a professional theatre production into community centres, schools, and other community venues, supported by an education programme. The production focused on boundaries, territory and space and was been created using the words from interviews with young people on the periphery of, or involved in gangs, police, ex-offenders, residents, Councillors, youth workers, drug dealers and mothers.
A vital resource for schools, colleges and universities.
The theatres are committed to supporting the work of schools, colleges and universities in the region and each season sees a variety of shows suitable for different levels of study. It regularly includes set texts and the best touring work from around the country and abroad, demonstrating a wide range of theatrical styles. The Ed Plus programme provides a range of activities that link to the theatres production programme including workshops, masterclasses and talks.
Support the city’s stars of the future.
The Everyman Youth Theatre was founded in the mid-seventies and became one of the most successful youth theatres in the country. It was the starting point in the careers of many successful actors, musicians, writers and theatre practitioners including Ian Hart, David Morrissey and Cathy Tyson. Today, the Everyman and Playhouse Theatres are continuing this tradition by providing the highest quality youth theatre training for the stars of the future. In January 2012 the theatres launched YEP - Young Everyman Playhouse which offers opportunities for young people aged 11-25 to work on projects as a Young Actor, Writer, Technician, Programmer, Communicator or Director.
