There are 20 places available for 14-20 year olds who want develop their performance skills and learn about the ancient Greek origins of theatre” To find out more click here
Nobby Dimon added “Young people often have travel outside the dales to take part in something like this but we have great spaces and skills right here. Every time we have performed in the main hall at the Dales Countryside Museum I have looked at the reconstructed auction mart space and imagined small scale ancient Greek theatre. Now we have the opportunity to make that vision reality.”
