Millais School have been selected to be part of the National Theatre’s nationwide youth theatre festival 2018.

This is a unique opportunity to stage a new play written for young people by some of theatre’s most exciting playwrights, and the play, ‘The Changing Room’ by Chris Bush, will be performed at the Minerva Theatre in Chichester on Thursday March 22.

The play centres around the fact that ‘The future is full of amazing and exciting possibilities if you are a young adult growing up today’.

Set in and around a swimming pool, ‘The Changing Room’ follows a group of teens full of excitement, impatience and uncertainty, each with their own secret worries and desires for the future.

It will take you on a rollercoaster journey, exploring or remembering what it is to be a teenager on the cusp of becoming an adult.

Mrs Sykes, director of learning for creative & expressive arts at Millais said “We are very excited to be presenting this spectacular, vibrant and lyrical production in association with The National Theatre, London, both in Chichester and at Millais School on February 22 and 23”.

Tickets cost £5. Call Chichester Theatre Box Office on 01243 781312.
