“Educating a New Creative Class”

Leeds Playhouse

Introduction

Leeds Playhouse is a cultural hub, a place where people have been gathering to tell and share stories and to engage in world class theatre for nearly 50 years. From large scale spectacles to intimate performances, the Playhouse develops and makes work for the stage, found spaces, touring, schools and community venues, cultivating artists through its Artistic Development Programme, Furnace.

As dedicated collaborators, Leeds Playhouse works regularly with other organisations from across the UK, and some of the most distinctive and original voices in theatre today.

The Playhouse’s sector-leading Creative Engagement team works with over 10,000 people aged 0 - 95 every year through a range of weekly workshops and exciting creative projects using theatre to open up possibilities, reaching out to refugee communities, young people, students, older people and people with learning disabilities.
