Rose Bruford

Half Moon has developed a strong on-going relationship with Rose Bruford College through their specialist under- and post-graduate Theatre for Young Audiences courses, as well as the undergraduate Technical and Actor/Actor Musician courses. As well as providing opportunities for students to work alongside us on projects for schools and community groups, Careers in Theatre being one example, between 2011 and 2015 we provided a final year performance project where students from across all courses mirror the development and presentation of a new piece of theatre aimed at young audiences. By working in a professional theatre environment working with and being mentored by Half Moon’s team, this programme offered students a real taste of working within the profession weeks before they exit training and begin their careers. In recent years this has included Scrub a Dub, Dig and Delve and Up, Up and Away (see Exchange for Change for more details).

In 2014, we developed Colour as part of this on-going project:
