Over To You: Co-Creation Show

13 & 20 Aug, 3 Sep & 5-10 Sep, 2022
Co-create and perform in a community show as part of the Over To You Double Bill on Saturday 10 September.

Derby CAN, led by Derby Theatre and other cultural partners, is looking for local performers and people who would like to be involved in Over to You, an exciting, brand-new show that will be performed in a big top tent in the beautiful surroundings of Markeaton Park in September.

Who is this for?

  • Anyone who lives in Derby and the surrounding areas – within a 5-mile radius of the city
  • For people aged 18 or over (no upper age limit)
  • Maybe you are interested in photography or film?
  • Maybe you want to sing, dance or act?
  • Maybe you have ideas about what the show should be about?
  • Maybe you have never done anything like this before and want to give it a go!

What will I do?

  • Take part in 3 workshops where you will play, explore and share stories about people and places in Derby, and celebrate what makes you, you.
  • With the help of a professional theatre maker, we want you to be a part of creating a brand-new show using the ideas generated in the workshops.
  • The group will perform your show on Saturday 10 September in the evening
