Drama 4 Change A Community Youth Theatre Group for 10 years to 16 years of Age
In 2021 we formed the Community Youth Theatre Group “Drama 4 Change”. “Drama 4 change” is a weekly run free to attend group for 10 years – 16 years of age run by two drama practitioners. The Drama 4 Change group helps young people to build on confidence and communication whilst supporting issue-based drama exploring issues that are important to young people and their communities. This group will give young people a voice and the opportunity to promote change and make a difference.
The Drama 4 Change group will produce high quality emotionally engaging productions tackling some of the most challenging issues and difficult topics.
The Knife Angel June 2021
Drama 4 Change produced an emotive piece for the arrival of the Knife Angel monument against Violence and Aggression in June 2021. The Cracked Slipper Company worked with The Knife Angel Team Hereford producing a filmed piece for the opening ceremony, providing workshops through out June and a live performance at the closing ceremony. Alison Davies lost her son Mark to knife crime in December 2018 and together with friends Meryl Cain, Pauline Strong and Jan Jefferies, they wanted to raise awareness of the catastrophic impact violent crime has on individuals, families and communities. Drama 4 Change being an issue based drama group felt that it was important for young voices to be heard and they expressed this through the creative piece written and performed by young people.
Is a Drama group for Neurodivergent young people aged between 16 and 26 years of age. This group meets weekly led by two Drama leaders who help young people to express their creative ideas.

Summer 2020 The Cracked Slipper Company was involved with The Fit and Fed Programme at Hinton Community Centre. We also ran a Campaign workshop with Young people choosing the topic that they wanted to Highlight. The group chose LGBTQ+ and they created a campaign with a film, live performance, and a poster.
