National Theatre Connections 2019 comes to the Crucible this March!

We are excited to announce the return of National Theatre Connections to the Crucible this March. National Theatre Connections is one of the UK’s largest celebrations of youth theatre. Plays are commissioned for and about young people, from some of the best contemporary playwrights, and performed by schools and youth theatres all over the UK and Ireland.

As part of this year’s Connections, we will be presenting our own production of STUFF by Tom Wells on Thu 14 and Friday 15 March, performed by members of the Sheffield People’s Theatre Young Company. Click here for more information.

The show will be performed again as the launch show of the National Theatre Connections Festival (Mon 25 – Sat 30 March), alongside performances from groups of young people from across the North. See below for the full schedule, as well as links to find out more about the shows and the festival as a whole.
