Touring with Front Row Theatre

We have been very busy over the past few months with the Oldham College student led theatre company Front Row. ‘The only way is Oldham’ is the piece we have been working on with them, it’s a devised piece based on 6 students journey’s; from taking a vocational course at the Oldham college through to beginning their careers and getting a Job.

2Tour mentor Front Row and usually just offer assistance and guidance for them to create their own work, for this project it has been slightly different as we have directed this piece and we have loved every minute of it!

The show has just been taken on tour to schools around Oldham visiting year 11 students, it has hopefully given them a taste of it’s like to study a vocational course at the Oldham College. Schools including Hathershaw school, Falinge school, Waterhead Academy, Royton and Crompton and Oldham Academy north. The reaction from the students and teachers at the schools was fantastic they loved the characters, humor and the companies overall professionalism.

As part of the tour Front Row delivered workshops at the schools and we helped the students running facilitation workshops and helping them to structure an informative fun workshop. They were very well received and all students that took part produced some great work themselves. We can’t wait for the next Front Row project!!

The tour is now complete, and Front Row and 2Tour Theatre are working with media professionals at the Oldham College to edit the show into a film version to be used for marketing and career purposes in the college and to be sent to schools to explore.
