The Fuse Theatre Company is set to create a new theatre piece with a cast including young people with special educational needs and disabilities.

The Factory explores working life inside a factory, a space where everyone is set in their ways, uniform and good at their jobs. But what happens when a new person arrives, someone who is a little different from what we are used to?

North Yorkshire County Councillor Janet Sanderson, Executive Member for Children’s Services, said: “Fuse is an inclusive youth theatre project run by our Connecting Youth Culture service and professional theatre artists. It gives opportunities to young people with special educational needs and disabilities and those without to take part in theatre workshops that work towards performances. They work together positively to explore often difficult topics around inclusion and to have fun.”

The Factory will be performed at:

  • Helmsley Arts Centre on Tuesday, 24 October;
  • Stephen Joseph Theatre, Scarborough, on Wednesday, 25 October;
  • The Town Hall, Northallerton, on Thursday, 26 October;
  • The Town Hall, Selby, on Friday, 27 October; and
  • Ashville College, Harrogate, on Saturday 28 October.

This is a family friendly performance suitable for all ages, and will be ideal entertainment during the half-term school holiday.

Tickets cost £5 for adults, concessions/children £3 and £12 for a family of four. For performance times and to book,

Fuse is funded by the County Council’s Children and Young People’s Service and The Big Lottery Reaching Communities Fund.
