Something New Theatre3 September 2016
We are proud to have recently supported Something New Theatre deliver TWO week-long summer schools for local kids during the holidays.
The workshops were held between 15th and 26th August at St Mary's College, Wallasey and provided 6 to 21 year olds with quality (but fun) training in singing, dancing and acting.Something New Theatre was established in 2015 and only put on their first stage show in February 2016. But they quickly decided that during the summer break they wanted to offer affordable workshops to local young people and contacted the Olivia Rae Foundation for support.
We were more than happy to help as the majority of the theatre company members are young themselves and we saw this as an opportunity to help this talented group of individuals establish themselves whilst offering a service to the wider community.
The result was two, week-long summer schools based around the two hit musicals, "Matilda" and "We Will Rock You". Hopefully this will be the start of 'Something New' on the Wirral drama scene.
Through its fundraising and grant making the Olivia Rae Foundation aims to support young people on Merseyside in achieving their aspirations through Education and the Arts.
