The egg theatre in Bath was hatched 5 years ago. To celebrate we want to expand our Eggpot fund so more young people with disabilities and from rurally isolated & culturally deprived areas can take part in a wider range of the egg‚Äôs activities and have the same chances as more privileged youngsters
It ran from 10:00 AM, 6 December 2010 to 10:00 AM, 4 January 2011
Registered Charity in England and Wales (277723)
1) Disabled teenagers don't have the same opportunities as others to participate in the egg regularly throughout the year. 2) The area's apparent wealth masks pockets of economic deprivation & cultural isolation. The view that the Theatre is elitist & expensive, coupled with poor public transport, makes it hard for some youngsters to access the egg. 3) It is harder for schools to run theatre trips as teaching cover costs have increased, and transport plus tickets is too much for some pupils
1) We will turn an irregular drama project for disabled teenagers into a year-round regular Young Peoples Theatre (YPT) Create group offering wider range of theatre skills. 2) The egg in Radstock will offer varied activities for different ages in an ex-mining area with few arts events but excellent new school facilities. 3) The Eggpot will offer more bursaries for YPT and holiday activities, and show tickets & transport subsidies so disadvantaged children can also enjoy what others can afford.
