We had some fantastic news here at The Playhouse, we found out that we have been nominated forthe 6th Annual Mousetrap Awards 2017, the UK's only youth-voted drama awards in the category Most Welcoming Venue! The award ceremony is taking place on the 7th May, and we have been invited along. The Playhouse Theatre has been nominated by Mousetrap Theatre Projects’ Youth Forum, comprised of young people aged 23 and under, who take an active role within the charity. The nominations will then be voted upon by approximately 7,500 members of their theatregoing clubs, theatrelive4£5 and westend410, as well as members of other youth theatre initiatives across London.
In the West End of London the Ambassador Theatre Group have 12 theatres. Our Creative Learning Team work to create bespoke workshops and courses with Teachers and Group Leaders from across the UK, often to coincide with a visit to see a West End performance. Our programme includes activities relating to the shows being presented in the theatres as well as opportunities to explore theatre-making more generally and to build personal skills. In partnership with our Group Sales department, we offer regular workshops for schools on the long-running shows Blood Brothers, Wicked, Legally Blonde and The Woman in Black amongst many other productions. In addition, we offer regular events exploring the options available to young people interested in a career in theatre.
