Putting Alcohol Issues Centre Stage

Students watched a hard hitting drama about the dangers of teenage alcohol abuse.

Members of Corby’s Shout! youth theatre group performed their new drama on Wednesday and Thursday to our Year 10 and Year 11 students

The drama, which will be shown to all Key Stage 4 students in Corby, was commissioned by the Safer School’s Partnership, which is part funded by Northants Police and Northants County Council.

Director Paula Boulton said: “Shout was set up to give young people a voice.

“All of our productions are issued based and deal with real life experiences of young people.  We do our research before we devise the play and everything is true to life.”

Since it was founded in 1998 the theatre group has tackled a number of sensitive teenage issues such as bisexuality and homophobic bullying and its next production will be about teenage pregnancy.

Casting is currently taking place and if any CBA students want to get involved with the Shout! they can call Ms Boulton on 0789 2489163.

Shout! meets every Tuesday from 6.30pm to 9.30pm at the Labour Club in Stuart Road, Corby.

New members are always welcome.
