Under the artistic direction of our founder Jamie O'Rourke, our growing
organisations' projects are divided into these areas:
The company has a committed following and is always seeking to build on this
audience through innovative audience development and educational work.
Project Theatre aims to promote community and youth involvement in drama and
theatre arts across the Falkirk area through workshops, productions and community initiatives.
The aims of our group are:
To provide a supportive and safe environment for young people to engage in drama
and theatre related activities on a regular basis.
To encourage and facilitate the development of skills related to theatre and drama.
To provide opportunities for all members to take part in regular Youth productions on
any theatre stage.
To give members the opportunity to take part in additional workshops and events.
To provide a place for people with an interest in theatre and drama to meet, make
friends and have fun.
To further these aims and objectives we
Provide theatre workshops and classes
Encourage representatives of other organisations to exchange information and
work on joint projects
Take part in other activities that promote good practice in youth theatre and for
the benefit of the community
