“I think the most important thing is the creativity of it… we don’t like have just a script of something. It’s completely original, so it means we can basically do whatever we want with the plot.” Youth Theatre member
"My son's confidence has grown hugely during his time with Travelling Light, and I think as a result of that he's more likely to be prepared to have a go at other similar activities at school and so on whereas previously he might not have done." Youth Theatre parent
"One of the things I value the most about TL is how you get to meet lots of new people, and as well as the drama, you get to have fun and learn about each other and make new friends through this nice experience." Youth Theatre member
The quotes above are from an evaluation of our Youth Theatre programme in 2019. Between March and December 2019, we commissioned Evaluation Consultant, Nell Farrally, to co-ordinate a collaborative evaluation process to understand what children, young people and families think about our Youth Theatre programme and to understand its impact. You can read the executive summary here.
