20Twenty Productions CIC was created on 25th October 2011. We are a not-for-profit organisation that uses creativity and participation to engage and empower children and young people so they may build confidence, essential skills for life and one or more creative skill sets. Working strategically, collaboratively and directly as creative practitioners we inspire young people to realise their potential whilst growing as leaders. Our programmes, projects and events are designed with and for young people. 20Twenty Productions supports creative industry development; empowering young people to gain qualifications and access real world opportunities. If you would like to know more about the work we do please email us.
20Twenty Productions have been running Youth Theatres for many years and are very proud of our groups. Every group has a genuine family feel and welcome children and young people from all over the district, various schools and home education.
Due to Covid-19 the 20Twenty Youth Theatre teams are no longer running sessions at March Town Hall. However sessions are continuing on line for the All Stars group who are currently working on Joseph and his amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat. And Boundless who have been working on their own animated version of Alice in Wonderland due to be released this summer.
More information about how the youth theatres will continue from September will be announced in August.
We currently run three theatre groups which perform musical theatre, acting, singing and dancing. All groups will perform at least one main show each year alongside other community performances including, March GER Christmas Cracker, St Georges Fayre and our own fundraising events.
The first session is always a free introductory session to provide your child with a chance to decide if they believe they will enjoy being a member. The Youth Theatre sessions run during school term time at March Town Hall as follows:
All Stars. School years 7 & 8. Thursdays, 5pm - 7pm. Cost £5 per session.
Boundless. School years 9 - 13. Tuesdays, 7pm - 9pm. Cost £5 per session.

"Without our funders, 20Twenty Productions would not exist. In a world where all children and young people were treated with respect, equality, and afforded creative and artistic opportunities to express themselves, we would not need to."
