Young people with acting aspirations are invited to sign up for a new youth theatre class in Clitheroe.

Ribble Valley award-winning production company Ribcaged Productions is staging a class for young people aged 11 to 15 who are beginners to acting.

It will be held at the United Reformed Church in Clitheroe on Tuesdays between 4-30 and 5-30 pm.

Offering the opportunity for young people to train with professional actors, play games and develop new skills in performing arts, the class is ideal for those who enjoy performing. During the course of classes the young people will also work towards performing a showcase of their work.

The class costs £8 per session and to book a place please email

Ribcaged recently performed the hugely successful new musical ‘Stop the Train’ in August at Clitheroe’s The Grand. Their new production No Man’s Land, written and directed by Stephanie McKervill takes the audience back to the First World War, a time when women’s lives changed dramatically. A total of 700,000 women worked in munitions factories, such as

Dick, Kerr & Co in Preston. The women at this factory played football in their lunch breaks and formed a team which went on to win in front of 10,000 spectators on Christmas day 1917 at Deepdale, raising thousands for war charities.

It will be performed at Blackburn Empire theatre on September 25th, 26th and 27th (call 01254 685500) and The Grand in Clitheroe on November 11th (call 01200 421599).
