The Electric Sunshine Project are really grateful to the Big Lottery for funding their new Community Theatre Company which will start in January 2018 and work towards a performance in summer next year.
The company will be led by Melanie Whitehead and will have regular input from other specialist artists.
They will use their own stories about Blackpool to tell a new tale about the town and aim to perform this in a few different locations – all company members will have voice in these decisions and they hope it will be a genuinely collaborative process.
They are finalising details of where, when and how but there will be taster sessions – taking place in December 2017 – for you to come along and try out some activities and ask any questions.
There will be a maximum of 20 places available and so they encourage you to come along to one of these sessions so they can pull together a company with the broadest range of skills and best chances of building a genuine ensemble.
They hope to be able to offer non-performance opportunities within the company too – these will be opened out as they approach their performances.
