Welcome to the 2017 Young Actors Project


A note from your directors: Thought Plane Theatre


Hello! We’re Steph and Sarah and we are Thought Plane Theatre. We are the lead artists and directors on this year’s Young Actors Project at Action Transport Theatre. We’re thrilled to be able to work with you on a new and exciting piece of theatre which will be staged at Whitby Hall in the Summer.


Before then we will meet for rehearsals over the next few months in order to craft and rehearse our piece called:

To Go From All We Know.

The piece will be partly devised by the company and scripted based on ideas around the theme of migration and communities leaving one place to go to another.  We have already begun exploring these ideas and will be continue to create our show together.


Thought Plane Theatre is really keen to treat young people like professional theatre makers and performers throughout the project which will be targeted at 11-25 year olds (average age around 14). We will have high expectations in all of our rehearsals and want to get the very best standard possible in all the work we’ll create together. 


Thought Plane are based in Manchester and specialise in works that embrace interactivity and unusual stagecraft. They’ve been chosen as lead artists on this project by Action Transport Theatre, a celebrated and award-winning theatre company based in Ellesmere Port. 

Whether you have previous acting experience or just the passion to give it a try, contact jess@actiontransporttheatre.org to get all the info you need.
