Arts Award Success for M6 Theatre students

M6 Theatre were this week thrilled to learn that fifteen of their students achieved an Arts Council Bronze Arts Award qualification.  The 12 to 17 year olds had taken part in a week-long project at M6 Studio this summer.

As part of the award they had to review a performance, write about their arts hero and take part in and lead drama activities.  For many of the young people this was their first taste of drama and performance and we’re very pleased that some of them have gone on to join the youth theatre.
