To provide opportunities & enable young people (particularly those from less advantaged backgrounds) to access actor training provisions.

by The Wheel in Plymouth, England, United Kingdom

Please help us to move forward with our plans and develop a range of opportunities for young actors.

Up until now The Wheel has been dependent on people volunteering time and expertise to lay the foundations of the Charity. We are now in a position where we need some finance to enable our vision to move forward. We want to develop the infrastructure necessary to support our mission; to offer inclusive, and accessible actor training opportunities that are integrated within the professional industry and local community. 

We believe in: 

- Everyone being able to access theatre and the arts.

- Developing opportunities for people of all backgrounds to engage in theatre and acting.

- The power of theatre to develop people.

- Being friendly, and treating people like individuals.

- Building bridges to overcome challenges, empowering people and communities.

- Creating safe spaces to allow people to face these challenges with resilience.

- Creating productions that have a social conscience at their heart.
- Recognising the individual and supporting mental health & wellbeing in every aspect of our work.

- Learning through 'doing'.

- Integrating our professional work with our training opportunities.

Your kind donations will:

- Give us the foundations to create and design a range of training opportunities.
- Give young people from less advantaged backgrounds opportunities to access theatre and acting.
- Allow us to secure further project based funding.
- Allow us to develop an infrastructure that will have a long lasting impact for the charities future work.

- Offer more open-access workshops.

- Offer a menu of schools based workshops.


Our highly skilled team and trustees driven by a commitment to develop individuals within a caring environment. We have ambitious plans for our future integrating our training opportunities and courses with our professional production work. This crowdfunder will act as a bedrock to build upon and begin to make our plans a reality.
