2018 may have only just begun, but The Artz Centre are already set to celebrate yet another “first” for the arts and culture scene in Skelmersdale. On Friday 2nd of March, the community-arts based initiative situated in Birch Green, will officially launch their all-new “Drama for Adultz” programme, calling all local actors, singers and dancers to come together, develop new performance skills and take centre stage.
The brand new weekly drama class, for those aged 18 and above, will offer an affordable performing arts provision that is currently unavailable elsewhere in the town. Providing our local “Adultz” with a much needed opportunity to freely express themselves and explore their own emotions and character through the powerful medium of the performing arts. And in true Artz Centre spirit, as long as you are prepared to “Aim High” and “Work Hard”, then no previous performance experience is required.
The launch of the “Adultz” programme also marks the beginning of a new partnership for Artz with local West Lancs College. The College will be offering a formal qualification to all local adults participating regularly in the new drama session, to recognise their individual learning progress throughout the year and their commitment to the Artz experience. Further to this, West Lancs College will be providing the venue for the debut Artz for Adultz show, set to take place in August 2018, in the College’s very own Hope Theatre.
It is safe to say, that this much-awaited adult provision has been the focus of much recent talk in the town. And with more and more research proving the real positive impact that participation in the arts can have on the health and wellbeing of a community, “Drama for Adultz” is certainly set to only further the benefits that the Artz Centre is currently providing for its local people, both young and old(er).
Fancy a place in the spotlight in their upcoming debut “Artz for Adultz” performance this summer? Then what are you waiting for.
Classes start 7pm, Friday 2nd of March at The Artz Centre, Hartland, Birch Green.
