About our production of The Color Purple

Our production raises money to give children who love to perform the opportunity to be on stage for free. We are especially interested in giving those young people unable to access theatre schools the opportunity to work with a creative team who want to see children from all walks of life work creatively together. Our ethos is to shape young people, and give them a chance to develop their talent, and experience working in a theatre company driven with purpose and excellence!
