Birmingham History Theatre Company

13 October 2016

“Drama is not about individuals but about people working together to produce something and feel part of it.”

Young people involved in the theatre company wanted a group specifically for people their own age.

Birmingham History Youth Theatre in Balsall Heath, funded by People's Health Trust

The drama sessions help members develop skills and increase their confidence and self-esteem.

Members are involved in all aspects of the project, from shaping the sessions and working on stage management, to promoting events and making decisions about staff recruitment.

As the project progresses, more of the young people deliver the sessions themselves, or join the steering group that decides the direction of the project.

Members are becoming more involved in their local area by taking part in events and putting on performances.

The project puts a lot of focus on local heritage, which is helping residents to feel more connected to their community.
