Want to watch theatre, live music, spoken word, dance and be able to write about it? Feel you have an opinion but want to learn how to get your voice heard?
Young Reviewers brings a fascinating and packed programme of workshops led by industry critics to allow you to understand how to talk about the arts. Find what suits you; are you an online blogger or broadsheet reviewer? Do you live tweet your reviews, YouTube after the show or write in your diary? Whatever your style, find the best way to begin or improve your critical approach.
Each workshop is centered around one of our fantastic shows in the season. Participants will be able to watch and review shows, then gain feedback from mentors on their work.
This course is for you if...
• You're interested in theatre and talking about it afterwards
• You're a blogger who wants to find their voice
• You're an aspiring critic or journalist
In May 2016, the Young Reviewers will contribute to the Young Programmers Music Festival, with the opportunity to review and write features.
