Theatres:

"Working with Troupers on developing Storybox has been a real joy: they’re professional, committed and always full of ideas, and they’ve helped us create a workshop model that has consistently inspired and delighted our young audiences." Carrie Rhys Davies, Tobacco Factory Theatre

"We were thrilled to have Troupers with us at our recent Gala event at the Young Vic. They offered a great range of inventive and inspiring theatre games to entertain the young people attending. They were fantastic at including everyone and integrating different age ranges and abilities. The children all had great fun and lots of the adults thought it looked so good they joined in too!" Rebecca Cahill, Development Manager, Young Vic Theatre

"The work was a self-devised story which showed great imagination in its invention, skill in its execution and enthusiasm and sensitivity in its presentation. It was a delight to see young people with such sense of self-confidence, enjoyment and ownership of their work." John Hartoch, Head of Acting Courses, Bristol Old Vic Theatre School
