We also have an extensive Creative Learning programme, giving children and young people from birth to 18 (or 25 for disabled young people) an opportunity to participate in a variety of drama and theatre activities in schools, community settings and at Half Moon. We are proud to offer high quality theatre and an affordable experience.
