About Theatre Troupe CIC

Theatre Troupe offers an alternative creative community, with a programme structure that helps participants to understand and experience the possibilities of relational compassion and care, which they can then take into and apply to their daily lives.
We do this through the delivery of weekly programmes that run for up to one year, for small groups of children and young people aged 9 to 19.

Our primary focus is work with children and young people, who may have experienced trauma, offering one-to-one support (including therapeutic support) within a group setting. Theatre Troupe members have the opportunity to get involved in all aspects of theatre (not just performance), including design, costume-making and set construction, usually working towards a production or sharing of work at the end of each project.

Participants are referred to Theatre Troupe through our partnerships with safeguarding teams, social services, primary and secondary schools and Children & Adolescent Mental Health Services (CAMHS) in the areas we are working in.

Working with volunteers is key to the success of our programmes and Theatre Troupe volunteers come from a variety of different backgrounds including BA and MA Drama courses, social work, teaching and clinical psychiatry.
