“The highlight of my son’s week. He loves being able to contribute ideas to everything they do. A unique group that’s lots of fun and provides plenty of opportunities”

TYCP is not just a drama school…..
Whilst our main aim is to nurture talent and to provide exciting new opportunities to young people in Portsmouth, the Young Creatives from all classes are also presented with lots of opportunities to plan, produce and perform for a range of events from festivals to fetes, theatre productions to community events, shopping centres to wedding receptions!
For each event the students are given a brief. They then take part in all the decision making from picking a script to designing and making the set, acting and fulfilling backstage roles. These responsibilities not only give the young creatives an insight into how events and shows are put together but gives them a sense of ownership over the final product.
A large part of TYCP is to source opportunities for young people to share their creativity within their local community at a level that they can really feel proud of. Past events have included performing at The Victorian Festival of Christmas, the Southsea Show, The Kings Theatre Open Day, taking part in the Portsmouth Festivities film FACES, Albert Roads Daisy Chain Festival and more.
We also take trips to watch local and touring professional companies at work, take part in workshops and volunteer for local events.
Are you a local businesses, organisations or the brains behind an event? You may be able to provide an opportunity that can enrich young lives! We are always looking for opportunities for our young creatives to create work, if you have an event large or small please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss how we can get them involved.
