Theatre for Life aims to promote inclusion through community theatre projects that enrich the lives of our company members aged between 11- 25 years of age. At Theatre for Life we believe that creative learning is the key in building self- esteem, motivation and allowing participants to develop positive life changes. Whether it is teaching performing arts through our specialist workshops, LAMDA tuition, outreach and youth projects, we are here to work collaboratively to create shared objectives and life goals. Our FREE Youth Theatre group for 14-19 year olds has been set up to create theatre that is inspiring, powerful and open to interpretation, allowing our company members to take ownership of the work and to feel proud of their achievements. We are also looking to start outreach projects that place the voice of the local community into the centre of the work. Our first project will be on raising awareness around Mental Health for 18-25 year olds, using verbatim theatre and a unique performance setting to share experiences in a safe environment.

Theatre for Life wants to provide industry standard workshops to young actors and have formulated links with many professional bodies. Theatre for Life is working with RADA Outreach and professional director Jason Warren from the East 15 Acting School and Axis Arts in a Professional Acting Auditions workshop. Theatre for Life is also working with international singing coach Stephen King who is a vocal coach for The Voice and The Urdang Academy in a Professional Musical Theatre Auditions workshop. Alongside these links we have published playwright and drama practitioner Mark Wheeller delivering a CPD session for local drama teachers on the 11/10. Talented and committed actors who attend Theatre for Life groups may be able to get representation with R.D Casting & Production Ltd as part of our investment in local young actors and their career development. Founder and Managing Director Michael Moor (Former Head of Musical Theatre at The Guildford School of Acting) is leading the way, with versatile performers, who are also directors, writers and producers.
