Dare to Create Young Creatives, offering theatre and performance workshops for young people, is returning to in person sessions at the YMCA Scarborough.
From 20th April 2020, Dare to Create's Young Creatives group will start face-to-face sessions at the YMCA in Scarborough.
Dare to Create Young Creatives started in January of this year, but due to Covid-19 guidelines, have been delivering their workshops online via Zoom. April will see the start of their 3rd block of sessions, which will include 12 theatre and performance-based sessions across a 6-week period.
The Young Creatives sessions are for anyone aged 11-18 who are interested in theatre and offer a unique opportunity to gain skills in creating and performing theatre with a variety of subjects, drawing on a range of art-forms.
In block 3, participants will take part in theatre, writing, acting, improv, movement and other creative sessions as they work towards a new, original play, "I", which is written by the team at Dare to Create, with input from their Young Creatives.
"I" is the second play in a three-part series that focusses on identity and self-discovery. The first play in the series, "#" is a play following the online lives of 5 individuals and will be filmed on the YMCA Theatre Stage at the start of April and will be available to stream shortly after.
"I" explores aspects of identity and how we navigate all aspects of who we are and becoming who we want to be.
"I always look forward to Tuesday and Thursdays, I really love the sessions."

The sessions, which focus on building the young people's theatre and creative skills take place every Tuesday and Thursday, 7-9pm during 6-week blocks. Block 3 starts on April 20th and runs until 27th May when the participants will perform the new original play to a live audience.
