AGENDA- Vibrant Theatre
In October 2016, I, together with 5 other Community Theatre Students, established Vibrant Theatre Company. We work with local young people who identify as part of the LGBTQ* community to make work about sexual and gender identity- focusing on the labels and cliches surrounding it.
Our first community play AGENDA will be performed on 1st, 2nd & 3rd June 2017, at Clifftown Theatre, Southend on Sea.

CLIFFTOWN YOUTH THEATRE-
My colleague Grace Duggan and I were commissioned by the University of Essex and East 15 Acting School to complete some research into the possibility of starting a youth theatre in partnership with them, in 2016. In October we ran a sold out taster session for 5-8 year olds before commencing a 5 week program in January 2017. We are now in the midst of our second successful term and are intending to complete a summer program too.
I am not only in charge of the administration and marketing of the project but also planning and delivering the sessions. We have received praise within the university community and beyond, with a feature about us being published within the university newsletters and the local paper.
