Play in a Week: Stage Combat & Silly Stories in Taunton

What a blast we had this Summer with the amazing David & Angela of Tor Theatre, creating our Play in a Week: Stage Combat & Silly Stories in Taunton! 35 young people aged 6-17 from all over Somerset learnt skills in Armed and un-Armed Stage Combat, Acting, Devising and epic snack eating over 4 days. We are so proud of their work and support for each other, making new friends and memories. The cast performed to a busy auditorium of enthralled parents, families & friends. Special thanks to Jem, Esme, Lara, Jo and the team. We can’t wait for the next Somerset Youth Theatre holiday school and creating the next SYT Play in a Week.

Huge thanks to SASP, Bishop Fox’s School, Taunton and Arts Council England for making this possible and putting young people at the heart of Theatre! Xx
