CFT, an island of satellites

Track number: 
8

Encouraging self-confidence in young people and giving them an outlet for their talents is one of the benefits of amateur acting groups. In the Chichester Festival Youth Theatre, we have one of the best organised and most talented groups for children to develop their abilities and enthusiasm. For a number of years a regular part of our Christmas has been taking our children and grandchildren to the annual Christmas performance, masterminded by Dale Rooks. For Christmas 2014 it will be 101 Dalmatians, so book early. But it is not just children from the city who can benefit: the theatre has a very definite policy of going out into the community of West Sussex and East Hampshire. The theatre’s education and community officer Rupert Rowbotham tells us about the satellite groups.
