Re:act clubs-a-go-go

REACT Half term clubs have been running every half term since September 2009 led by Raw Nerve Theatre Company. The day long programme has seen a variety of different kids come through its doors to experience intense drama training culminating in a performance at the end of the day to family and friends. The young people have looked at a variety of themes including peer pressure and revenge and more recently created their own adapted version of the well-known story of Snow White.

It has been great to spend a day with kids from the community and getting to know them, playing games, being positive role models, and sharing a bit about what we believe as Christians. Something I have been massively encouraged by, is seeing the same kids come back time and time again and the opportunities that it gives to build relationships with them.

10-15 young people come regularly and it has been great to see familiar faces return year after year. Some of the youth from Riverside attended REACT and have since gone on to perform in Miff and Roc Solids main productions. It’s a delight to see how they’ve grown in both their performance work and general confidence in group situations. This summer we will be running our REACT Summer Intensive which is a weeklong training programme run for 9-15 year olds. The week includes teaching in drama, dance, song writing, filming work and physical theatre concluding in a performance to family and friends at the end of the week.
