Celebration of 15 Years of Stage Beyond Theatre Company
"This year we are marking our 15th anniversary, and it is fair to say we are entering our 2016/2017 season on a high! Demand for places in the company has been such that we have had to restructure our entire programme to accommodate not one but two courses of training workshops.
At this moment we could not be prouder of how far Stage Beyond and its membership have developed over the course of the past fifteen years and - to celebrate this - we are delighted to announce a spectacular cabaret show. Touring to Derry~Londonderry, Letterkenny and Belfast, this promises to be a dramatic evening of laughter - tears - and most of all, talent.
Directing the Gala show will be Margaret Carlin, Kate Guelke, Dee Conaghan & Patsy Devine who are joining the company again to facilitate in-house training as well as a diverse array of outreach workshops.
In short - our programme this year will be busy, varied, exciting and challenging! You can follow our progress on Twitter (@stagebeyond) and on Facebook!"
