We have had the opportunity to work with all sorts of individuals and companies since we’ve started. We’re always looking to build new partnerships and relationships with businesses.
Past Productions are proud to have helped to deliver part of the Gateway Award. Through our sister company Open Hands we are delivered drama workshops to vulnerable adults. They were designed to help them gain skills and confidence. We hope this is the start of a long and successful partnership between us. We aim to promote independence and to break down the stigma’s attached to disabilities and mental health.
Liverpool Institute For Performing Arts
Without LIPA, Past Productions would not have grown as well as it has done. LIPA have funded us for several years and provided us with marketing opportunities. They have also recommended students to us for workplacements. They also have a great amount of knowledge for us to make use of. We have good links with LIPA from our Artistic Director having studied a Masters there. Mark Featherstone-Witty is one of our advocates and is thrilled with the work that Past Productions is producing.
Croxteth Hall & Country Park
Past Productions took Hansel and Gretel to Croxteth Hall in August 2014. The hall also booked our WWI show “Wish You Weren’t Here” to play as part of their Heritage Open Weekend. Past Productions are currently in talks with Croxteth Hall to help deliver part of their educational programme within the Hall and as outreach in the nearby schools.
We loved working in the historical setting Croxteth Hall and we are very much excited to continue working with them and buildling the relationship that has already started. There was great public feedback from our work at Croxteth Hall. We hope to expand on our portfolio in the future.
After Adoption (Liverpool)
Our Artistic Director Robbie Southworth is set to give some talks on aspirations to young children and adults who have been adopted. Robbie was adopted himself and used After Adoption to trace his birth family. Past Productions are also proud to offer complimentary tickets to people who use the After Adoption services. We are currently delivering ‘The Identity Project’ which aims to help young people talk about their feelings and explore who they are through the medium of drama. This project concluded in September 2016.
Claire House Children’s Hospice
Past Productions have always liked to support local charities in any way they can. In 2012 we raised money for Claire House by offering 50% of our opening nights takings to them. We also put together a fundraising day for them at Leasowe Castle in Summer 2013.
We hope to continue working with this charity in the future and hope that through join ventures we can help them to increase the support they give, whilst ensuring that our theatre can reach as wide and a diverse audience as possible.
