Group 64 creates at least four Main Stage and three Studio productions each year. Our main stage shows have included shows such as Little Shop of Horrors, The Twits, His Dark Materials and Pronoun. Our Studio space gives our older Group 64 members the opportunity to direct and create their own productions as part of our Young Directors programme, these have included DNA by Dennis Kelly, Ruckus in the Garden by David Farr, as well as devised shows.
We also often take our work outside of Putney Arts Theatre, including taking part in The National Theatre Connections Festival (even getting to perform at the National Theatre in 2012!), performing at The Edinburgh Fringe Festival, the International Youth Arts Festival, and Trinity Playwriting Festival.
Group 64 members are able to audition for shows from the age of 8 upwards. We hold auditions due to the number of members at Group 64 and we aim to give every member who would like to be in a show this exciting opportunity. However we can't fit everyone into every show, so we just ask members and parents to be patient and understanding, the next show comes around quickly!
Please keep an eye on the website and e-mails for information on auditions. Please see our gallery for some photos of our previous productions.
We also offer young people (aged 14+) the opportunity to get involved backstage, for every show we have Group 64 members as Stage Managers, Make Up Artists, Lighting Operators, Sound Operators, Set Painters and Props Makers. This is a wonderful opportunity for members to get involved in all aspects of a production.
