Theatre Peckham is an inspirational Theatre Company that offers high quality arts education and training to children and young people residing in and around the borough of Southwark.
Established over 24 years ago the Theatre school and workshop programme has an excellent reputation which is reflected in the high number of distinctions received by students studying towards the Trinity Guildhall grade qualifications.
What We Do
Theatre Peckham also produces several productions each year that use a unique mix of professional actors and young people enrolled in the workshop programme. This highly individual model provides a fun and structured means to progress from participation to professional performances.
- Creates high quality, accessible, relevant and exciting theatre, which reflects and promotes the diversity of the local area and in so doing challenges perceptions of Peckham and its young people.
- Encourages, supports and nurtures children and young people to discover the magic of theatre and to develop their potential as young audiences, artists and theatre professionals of tomorrow.
- The Artistic Director Teresa Early collaborates with a wide range of creative professionals and young burgeoning artists to create highly engaging shows suitable for families, young people and school groups.
Our Education Projects Manager and Outreach and Drama Facilitator develop relationships with nurseries, schools, community groups and further education providers to create tailored educational projects that includes themed workshops and after-school drama clubs. Examples of previous projects include: speaking and listening workshops, projects on myths and legends, taster workshops in Musical Theatre, Tap, Ballet and Acting. Theatre Peckham is presently developing a new range of workshops for schools and community groups.
How You Can Help
Whilst Theatre Peckham continues to grow and goes from strength to strength with over 400 students attending 30 weekly classes we are having to compete more and more for grants from Trusts and Foundations. Theatre Peckham offers supported places with partial or full bursaries to over 5% of its students. Help us to continue supporting the young people of Peckham and South East London by investing in their future. You can donate here - just £4 supports a child to have one free lesson with us.
