Up & Comers is our weekly theatre program for our 12 to 18 year old participants.
In this program we work with the young people to help them develop their skills on the stage as well as off it. This program is as much about theatre as it is about forming friendships and developing social and teamwork skills.
MISFIT is all about giving young people a place to express themselves creatively, so most of the performance material is situated around youth-related issues.
Each year this group has two main performance opportunities. The first is a full-length play, performed at the end of the first semester or just after, which incorporates all the usual elements of community theatre such as auditions, lighting, costumes and much more. The second is the end of year showcase, performed at the end of term 4, which is a collection of small plays, performed in smaller groups along with all in group numbers as well.
We encourage young people of all abilities and skill levels to attend as we are a fully inclusive organisation and love seeing new faces.
This year we are excited to be running in 2 locations:
