Age Guidance:

Mercury Adult Company (MAC) is a weekly practical and innovative drama group for anyone aged 18+ with a shared passion for creating exciting theatre – both on-stage and behind the scenes. The company creates bold, exciting work, championing unheard stories, new voices and undiscovered talent, reflecting the culturally diverse neighbourhoods of our great region.

Within the sessions you’ll get the chance to devise original work, write scripts, improvisation, unlock texts, explore different techniques and digital technologies and develop performance skills

Whether you are a beginner or seasoned performer – if you want to express yourself, perform, write, laugh, meet new people or develop creative skills, MAC is for you!

This is your Mercury Theatre, the perfect place to take part.

The group will co-create and perform sharings at the end of each term. They will also be drawn upon for readings and monologues during Mercury Community events such as our Christmas Concert, World AIDS Day, Lates and more.

This is a follow on from our 101 (Acting, Shakespeare, Improvisation) groups, and we are excited to build this new company where the possibilities are endless.

This is just a taster session. 

Book the full term.
