GET ON STAGE
Unicorn’s Youth Theatres and Young Company give local young people aged 10 to 21 the chance to develop drama skills, create theatre and perform in spaces across the building. Over the year our members get the chance to work with theatre professionals to create exciting new work; from an intimate promenade piece that leads the audience down the back corridors, to large scale work that fills the main Weston Theatre stage.
