The Empirical Company (16-25yrs)

Join us for a series of activities for young people aged 16-25 interested in the future of theatre.

New Horizons offers an excellent opportunity to meet like-minded people, explore ways young people can respond to the challenges of a post-covid world in relation to the theatre and performance industry.

We want to be able to use this time to hear your ideas and thoughts so we can work together to co-create activities and opportunities which work for you when we are able to re-open our doors. We appreciate that many of you would like to be involved in different aspects, and prefer to take part in different ways. You are welcome to join us in any, or all of these activities which interest you.

We are really interested to hear your thoughts and ideas of what the future might look like and work alongside Norwich Theatre to co-create an Empirical Company that works for you.
