With Flying Colours is an exciting new play-making programme for young people in areas of low cultural engagement and high deprivation in Plymouth. Working in local schools, children will co-create plays based on their own ideas and words supported by professional writers. Each school will develop their ideas into performance pieces which will pop up in the local community in a whole manner of unlikely spaces and places.
These performances will have high production values. Parents and community members will have the opportunity to meet industry professionals and learn new skills which can be used to support the young people through a variety of practical community based ‘making’ workshops. This will include costume design, making props and building sets. The year will culminate with the school plays that have been developed featuring alongside a professional production in a community based festival in July.
