Stage Left for a night for the young people

Torbay Weekly

A special night of performance and activities for young people is being staged at the Stage Left at Paignton's Palace Theatre.

The event, aimed at young people aged over 14, is being held on November 6 and is being hosted by Doorstep Arts.

Music and theatre performances won't shy away from the 'hard stuff!'

Connor Allen will perform a work-in-progress of 'The Making of a Monster' which is an autobiographical journey into his teenage years as he makes a decision that will change the fabric of who he is, and the man he will become. Grime music provides the soundtrack to this story about family, heritage and growing up with questions around your identity.
Doorstep Youth Theatre will share a short performance of 'White Moon' which has been written, directed and produced by young people from Torbay.

This too is a work in progress and DIY is at the core of the event. People  are invited to make their own music by having a go at DJing with Frankie Love, who has been performing and playing at free festivals all round the world.

Vegan food will be provided by Tam's Kitchen and included in the entry price, and we will be joined by Double Elephant Print Workshop who’ll lead a screen-printing station.

Mair George, Project Manager with Doorstep Arts, said: "Events like these are so important for young creatives to get together, to share work that's in progress, to ask for feedback and then to go away and refine. It's been a tricky couple of years with very few opportunities for events like these. It's great to be back and we can't wait to see Stage Left buzzing with music, theatre and good times."
£5 tickets for the event - Our World: A Scratch Event - are now available to 14+ year olds, and there are plenty of other ways for young people to get involved at Doorstep Arts. To find out more about the event or to book:
