Cornbank Primary School, Penicuik
We believe theatre is a total experience. It begins with the creation of a script through the WEA Playwrights Workshop, grows in rehearsal, and culminates in a stage performance which touches and challenges audiences. Our aim is to bring the generations together and reach people who do not often have access to live theatre in their own communities.  
Making Music - Close Encounters
Our writers are invited to attend auditions and rehearsals, watch improvisation sessions, assist in revising scripts, meet the stage crew, and participate in the process of stage production. We work as a team using the talents of our whole crew throughout production.We are committed to nurturing inspiration and promoting creative growth.
