Next year First Act Theatre will be taking part in The National Theatre Connection 500.


Connections is the National Theatre’s nationwide youth theatre festival. Each year it offers a unique opportunity for youth theatres and school theatre groups to stage new plays written for young people by some of theatre’s most exciting playwrights, and to perform in leading theatres across the UK. Connections 500 will involve at least 10,000 talented young people from right across the UK, and inspire and entertain audiences with plays for and about young people that are current, challenging and resonant.


The play that The National Theatre have assigned First Act is Citizenship, which you can read by clicking the pdf above. We will be performing this at The Jubilee Theatre in Feb/March (date tbc) and then one night on Stage One at Northern Stage week commencing 26th April 2016.


Casting will commence soon, more news to follow.




First Act Theatre is a registered charity (1027875) and receives no revenue funding from any local authority or arts body, relying solely on production revenue and donations to run and improve the theatre.
