World Museum Liverpool’s Treasure House Theatre has hosted a variety of shows for young visitors since it opened last year. Now our youth arts officer Michelle O’Callaghan is turning the tables and giving the audience the chance to create their own productions as part of National Museums Liverpool’s new Youth Arts Programme.

The programme will include two Youth Theatre groups, for 11-15 and 16-21 year olds, starting in October. Taster sessions are being held over the next week for people who might be interested, have a look at the What’s On page for details.

I called into the first taster session yesterday morning, in time to see the participants create some very interesting characters for a short play, with help from some wigs from the prop box.
