Our creative sessions are developed in consultation with local teachers to provide valuable and enriching opportunities to enhance students’ creative understanding and practice of theatre-making. We offer a range of opportunities all year round, including production specific sessions, bespoke sessions and sessions which focus on careers within the theatre industry and our work backstage. Our workshops are led by professional artists and practitioners and take place at West Yorkshire Playhouse or in school settings.
