National Theatre Connections

National Theatre Connections

We are thrilled to have been chosen to be part of National Theatre Connections 2015. This year we will be performing 'The Boy Preference' by Elinor Cook.

National Theatre Connections is a national festival of new writing and young theatre making. Exciting new plays, commissioned by the National Theatre, will be performed by youth theatre groups across the UK, with professional support from the NT and its partner theatres. Connections aims to inspire 13 to 19 year olds with high-quality new playwriting.

Calderdale Theatre School also took part in National Theatre Connections 2012 and in 2014. In 2012 we performed Prince of Denmark by Michael Lesslie which we performed at Square Chapel, West Yorkshire Playhouse and on the Lyttleton stage of the National Theatre in London. In 2014 we performed The Wardrobe by Sam Holcroft in the Orangebox Studio and at West Yorkshire Playhouse. We are looking forward to finding out which exciting new script we will be working on for Connections 2015!

Calderdale Theatre School would like to acknowledge the generous support towards their participation in NT Connections 2012 from: Hebden Bridge Rotary Club, Hebden Royd Town Council and Calderdale Small Grants for Voluntary organisations and NT Connections 2014 from Hebden Royd Town Council, Hebden Bridge Rotary Club, Halifax Rotary Club and Thomson Reuters.
