The Cracked Slipper Company initially started as a one-off community Pantomime. With sold out performances and a full cast of different ages from diverse backgrounds.
In 2020 after realising that we had formed a much-needed community group we proceeded in gaining charitable status with the Charity commission as a Charitable Incorporated Organisation (CIO).
We are open to all age groups with projects and workshops aimed at a mix of ages but predominantly our work is with young people aged between 10 years to 25 years of age. We offer free to attend Drama groups and we reach out to those who may not be able to access the arts due to social and financial barriers.
We specialise in delivering a free to attend drama group that challenges and changes attitudes through issue-based drama. The issues that are highlighted through our drama productions are based on the issues that are important to young people and from experiences young people have had. Young people are at the helm in terms of what we do at The Cracked Slipper Company we involve young people in our consultation, strategy and delivery.
We give young people the opportunity to build positive relationships and engage with the wider community whilst gaining new skills and developing skills they already have. We empower young people to become leaders and reach their aspirations.
