A SPECIAL chance for creative youngsters to come together online is being welcomed by Theatre By the Lake.

They're hoping all budding actors and young creatives between 14 and 18-years-old will join experts in their field in a series of weekly online workshops to explore the world of theatre-making.

A spokesman for the theatre said: " The workshops will be relaxed, fun sessions where we’ll be able to explore theatre-making. So whether you have loads of experience or none whatsoever, these workshops will help them understand how we create the magic of theatre and help shape their ideas."

The programme is led by Cumbrian theatre director, Lexie Ward.

To book the eight week series, between Monday, February 8 – Monday, March 29, for £48 visit the website or for more information about the programme contact lexie.ward@theatrebythelake.com
