Despite giving the impression in my previous post about not being sure about stand-up comedy courses, I’ve only gone and and agreed to get involved in the following with the Royal Exchange Theatre. Just to be clear/wriggle out of accusations of being a hypocrite – these are for young people. I’m not sure there is a guarantee you’ll end up being a comedian at the end of it, plus if the worst happens and we just have a laugh and some kids end up a bit more confident about stuff – who loses?
For two weeks in July 2012 the Royal Exchange Theatre in partnership with The Co-operative Foundation are creating a youth-led festival to showcase the exciting work of young people in Greater Manchester.
Of course no festival would be complete without its own iconic poster image, photography exhibition, show stopping performances or fabulous fashion accessories, and so as part of our plans we are looking for short films, photographs, performances, comedy sets, poster designs and exciting craft creations from young people – come and help us make this two weeks to remember!
The deadline for applications is Friday 20 April 2012.
