“This is the third year in a row we are taking a performance to Latitude Festival. What has impressed us in the past is young actors who want to work in the industry coming together and rehearsing a piece of theatre. We are looking for ambitious, committed, talented and adaptable performers”. (Ade Slack, Creative Director Second Side)
“We are really excited about welcoming Second Side Theatre Company back to the Inbetweeners Stage at Latitude Festival 2017. Not only I am excited about seeing the work they create, which will be performed daily on the Inbetweeners Area stage which we deliver in partnership with Access To Music but also to see the progression the young performers make during and after the opportunity.” Elli Chapman, Artistic Director Culture Works East
“I’m proud that with an area dedicated to teens, Latitude continues to offer opportunities for young artists to develop their talent, and for teen audiences to expand their experiences and explore their own creativity, both at the festival and beyond.” Sharon Reuben, Curator Children, Family and Schools Programme, Latitude Festival.
