Plymouth Cultural Education Partnership (PCEP) are looking to co-produce a professional production as part of the With Flying Colours programme. We are seeking a South West based theatre company to devise and perform a brand new production co-created with children and young people (aged 8 -13) in Plymouth.
The final performances will be performed by the co-producing company and will feature a young, ensemble cast drawn from the partner schools.
The commission involves a period of research and development workshops with the schools (4 primaries and 1 secondary) participating in With Flying Colours. These workshops will develop the content, themes and narrative of the play which captures the voice of the children and young people. These ideas will then be shaped by the company into a one act play of 45 mins in length.
The piece will be performed up to 10 times in community venues as part of the With Flying Colours Festival in July 2020.
Ideally the co-production will be capable of being performed by the co-producing company alone and be used as an advocacy tool for With Flying Colours participants in future years.
Deadline: 27th November 2019.
