Young Writers

Stage Two | Class


Young Writers is an exciting partnership project between Norwich Theatre Royal and carefully selected professional organisations and individuals, all of whom have an interest and passion in supporting young writers in writing for performance.

Participants will work with a professional playwright to turn ideas and passion into drama in the context of theatre. Other professionals from the theatre industry (drama reviewers, directors etc) will visit the group and contribute their learning and experience. At the end of the course, writing will be brought to life in a rehearsed reading with actors, assisted by a director. 

“Working with a professional writer gives a great knowledge base from which to learn.”

AGES: 16-25
DATES: 10 September – 19 November 2019 (excl. 22 Oct)
DAYS & TIMES: Tuesdays 7-9pm, 10 weeks
COST: £80 per 10 week course
VENUE: Stage Two

Creative Writing Courses at Norwich Theatre Royal

Norwich Theatre Royal now offer the following creative writing courses:

The Empirical Company (16-25 years)

Empirical’ adjective: derived from or guided by experience or experiment.

Our Empirical Company offers a feeling of a supportive community where members are enabled to discover different energies, forms and techniques, plus new methods of making and creating performances. It is about taking a leap into the unknown.

Whilst members must have prior experience of performing, we aim to provide them with a training program that will support them technically, conceptually and personally to discover and shape their own unique artistic visions.

Training covers a wide range of approaches from acting, dance and movement to self-scripting, technical skills and performance. Our goal is to facilitate the development of young artists who have the skill, vision and courage to create vital new and exciting theatre.

Members also receive:

- Discounted or free theatre tickets across our three stages for selected shows. 
- Invitations to associated events across our venues. 
- A reduced rate for hiring studio spaces
- Free workshops with visiting companies where appropriate

The Empirical Company includes the following programmes for 16-25yrs

- The Actor’s Lab
- Young Technicians
