Neston’s Little Actors Theatre Company is assured a varied repertoire this year thanks to a grant from Neston Town Council.
I popped in to their session to present them with their certificate. Leaders Natasha Symms and Mike walker were about to begin a workshop with the Junior and Senior members, after having already been working for an hour with the younger Drama Tots.
Artistic Director Samantha Giblin later told me how important grants were to ensure children from all backgrounds can access the professionally led performing arts. They allow 50% discounts and free places, as well as offering adventurous challenges such as entering drama festivals, preparing for LAMDA exams and working with organisations such as the National Theatre.
