North East Deaf Youth Theatre
Launching in summer 2022, North East Deaf Youth Theatre aims to support deaf children and young people to develop their creative skills, build confidence and form new friendships.
Together with deaf arts organisation Turtléar, we will host a series of creative summer workshops for deaf children and young people that explore creative writing, acting, lighting and backstage skills.
August workshops are delivered by our Creative Associate EJ Raymond. EJ is profoundly deaf and a BSL user.

Peter and the Wolf
Prokofiev’s PETER AND THE WOLF returns to the picturesque Waterperry Gardens. Directed by Artistic Director Guy Withers, and choreographed by Julia Cave, this interactive family-friendly production lasts 30 minutes, and is ideal for little ones aged 0+, experiencing classical music for the first time.
This revival is particularly special as BSL Performer Paul Whittaker OBE, will be returning to Waterperry after previously performing at the festival in 2021’s Hansel and Gretel. Paul, like in Humperdincks classic, will be integrated into the storytelling alongside the musicians and performers.
When: 13th, 14th and 20th August / 11am and 1pm
Location: The Garden Glade near Waterperry's Lily Pond
