On 23 & 24 November 2019, up to 100 students are invited to take part in 2 days of free performance workshops at Kirkby Stephen Grammar School, with Kirkby Stephen Community Arts and theatre practitioners Tangled Feet. This is open to all students from year 6 to year 13 at Kirkby Stephen and Appleby Grammar Schools, Kirkby Stephen, Brough, Orton, Warcop and Tebay Primary Schools.
In Summer 2018, 150 students from local schools performed Keeping It Low-Key, the most extraordinary piece of theatre in the grounds of Kirkby Stephen Grammar School, with London-based theatre company Tangled Feet. In summer 2020 Kirkby Stephen Community Arts and Tangled Feet will present a similar production, but first the award-winning theatre company will work with the young people this Autumn to shape their ideas and share their skills.
Vicki Woof, Project Manager for Kirkby Stephen Community Arts, said “We were thrilled with the success of the 2018 production and hope that future performances will be just as inspiring. These two days of workshops are a great opportunity for local young people to work with Tangled Feet and start thinking about what next year’s full production might be.”
KSCA are grateful for funding from Westmorland Arts Trust and The Westmorland Family Cumbria Community Foundation Fund.
