We are the Stowmarket Youth Takeover group, the newest branch of Spinning Wheel Theatre. We are a group of young people aged 15-21 with a shared interest in the arts. 

We are producing our first play, 'The Hothouse' by Harold Pinter, with the support of Spinning Wheel Theatre's professional creative team. We are responsible for all aspects of the production, from the design and construction of the set, sourcing costumes, lighting and sound, marketing and performing on the stage. 

We are raising funds to cover the production costs (costume hire, props, set etc) and that's where we need your help! Every donation, no matter how small, will go towards covering the costs of the show. 

Please take a minute to watch our video, where you will see what a  difference participating in the group has made to us all. 

We would be so grateful to all your support and look forward to seeing you at the performance on the 8th July at the John Peel Centre in Stowmarket. 

Risks and challenges

This project is challenging as it is our first production together as a group. However, the professional theatre practitioners from Spinning Wheel Theatre have produced a large number of productions and will be guiding us through the process.
