Young People’s Puppet Theatre
Young People’s Puppet Theatre uses puppetry as a means of teaching creative and performance skills to young people, focusing on schools characterised by ethnic divides, low academic performance, or communities which do not traditionally value extended formal education. Young People’s Puppet Theatre’s work builds fundamental skills: it demands communication and tolerance, values concentration, emphasises the importance of teamwork, builds confidence, and levels the playing field between academic and ‘failing’ students. Funding from The Fore will support Young People’s Puppet Theatre to develop additional programmes that will leverage existing capacity, enabling the organisation to double the revenue it generates from its existing assets.
