Coram’s National Theatre Project
Coram has partnered with National Theatre on Public Acts - a nationwide initiative to create extraordinary acts of theatre and community.
Over two years Coram has been working with National Theatre to run fortnightly workshops with young people supported by Coram’s Young People programmes - young parents; adopted and care experienced young people and those from migrant and refugee backgrounds.
54 young people have been engaged since the start with 14 young people progressing onto the production of Shakespeare’s Pericles on the National Theatre’s Olivier Stage. They joined participants from eight other organisations across London and formed lasting friendships spanning generations.
This summer they will be taking to the stage again, performing a musical adaptation of Shakespeare's As You Like It. You can buy tickets here.
