New theatre created by young people comes to Milton Keynes

11th August 2022

We are delighted to present a brand-new piece of theatre, which has been written and devised by our very own Creative Youth Board.

The piece entitled, ‘THREE: People, Pathways, Perspectives in the Maze We Call Life’, has been created alongside local Director, Theatre Maker and Practitioner Georgia Tillery Randak. It tells the story of three people alone, learning the way life goes as they seek their paths, make their choices, face the unknown. Wherever will they go?

Thank you to The Ragdoll Foundation and Arts Council England for supporting us in this very exciting new theatre piece. 

About our Creative Youth Board

Our Creative Youth Board is a fantastic opportunity for young people to get involved in a programme of work. This will include creating new performances and working with The Play’s The Thing Theatre Company on developing a range of activities, events, talks, and masterclasses aimed at other young people across Milton Keynes.

It was borne out of our recent ‘Taking The Stage’ festival as we want to give our work with young people further legacy. We want to give young creatives a platform that allows them to drive this initiative in every aspect under the guidance of professional practitioners.

The ideas will come from the young people, supported and mentored by arts industry professionals through MK GalleryMK College and us; and will give them agency in shaping the arts offering in Milton Keynes.

As well as acting young people will have the chance to direct, produce, design and choreograph, plus have the opportunity to hone skills and try out new ones in various different projects in the future. 

We also want them to learn about the business side of things so there will be opportunities to learn about fundraising and marketing.

The Creative Youth Board’s first performance was an incredible and thought-provoking piece that they have worked so very hard on. We are extremely proud of how far they have come and their creativeness and writing ability. 

This is their chance to let their young voices be heard and their ideas and views be shared, which is needed to develop and improve the arts for young people in Milton Keynes.
