National Theatre Connections Festival

National Theatre Connections Festival

We are excited to announce that students from Shotton Hall Theatre School will be performing Remote by Stef Smith in March next year.

National Theatre Connections is the UK’s biggest Youth Theatre Festival. Groups of students have to choose a play to perform from ten new plays written for young people by cutting edge playwrights.

At Shotton Hall Theatre School, we pride ourselves on having being involved in the festival for the past eight years. Jonathan Ackley, was recently invited to National Theatre Connections director weekend, held at the National Theatre in November, where directors from all over the UK participated in master classes.

The play, which will be directed by Jonathan Ackley will be held at The Academy at Shotton Hall on Saturday 14 March and at The Northern Stage in Newcastle on Thursday 22 April. Watch this space to find out how to get your hands on tickets.

Shotton Hall Theatre School cast will leap into rehearsals for Remote in January 2015. Saturdays at Theatre School have never been more fun!
