Gipton the Musical

An 18-month project using taster workshops; up-skilling sessions; partnership development and pop up performances at local events to engage a local cast and back stage crew of over 120. Cast and professional artists co-produced large-scale show, performed to sell-out audiences of 1000+ on West Yorkshire Playhouse main stage. Storyline was co-created by local people about their neighbourhood past, present and future through the eyes of a fictional family.
