“Theatre is all about the creative imagination, and nowhere is this more important and more apparent than in the minds of young people. Children’s theatre seeks to inspire young people to engage in the arts. For some, it inspires them to become the next generation of actors, designers, writers and directors. For others it becomes the catalyst to a life filled with stories and escapism told on the stage, as they become the audiences we strive to reach. We need to support endeavours, like Children’s Theatre Digital, that seeks to make theatre for young people more accessible to all. Hoping that in the future, theatre in general will be accessible to everyone. Young and old, the future of theatre starts with children. It starts with Children’s Theatre Digital.” Nicholas Pinnock
