Jumping off the Stage

Jumping off the Stage is a brand new Youth Theatre project for young people on Bute, putting on ‘unusual performances in unexpected places’.

The project will provide many opportunities for children and young people to get involved in all aspects of theatre-making, whether onstage, backstage or front of house. We will be collaborating with theatre professionals and artists in a wide range of projects, to give children and young people on Bute the chance to try something new, learn new skills and showcase their talents.
