Young Reporters: Brave New World blogs

Young Reporters: Brave New World blogs

Our Young Reporters are being invited to the opening nights of Aldous Huxley's Brave New World, adapted by Dawn King. Young Reporters are given the opportunity to go backstage and report on any interesting behind-the-scenes insights that they find!

We're asking our Young Reporters to blog about their experience, how they do that is totally up to them. It could be a critique of the show or even a blog about their own experience. All of their work will be submitted right here on this page! 

Brave New World is directed by James Dacre and is touring across the UK from 4 September until 5 December 2015. Theatres currently participating in the scheme are:‚Äč

Royal and Derngate, Northampton
Nottingham Theatre Royal
Darlington Civic Theatre
Blackpool Grand
Bradford Alhambra Theatre

Our Young Reporters will be logging on here to tell you all about their experience. Check back as the tour progresses for updates below.
