As You Like It in Betws

Taking Flight Theatre Company brought Shakespeare’s classic comedy of disguise and deception to the village of Betws this summer, working in partnership with Valley and Vale Community Arts and The Arts Council of Wales’ Young Promoters scheme.

Taking Flight is an exciting and innovative professional theatre company who work to break down the barriers which can prevent participation in the arts. Accessible to all, they offer a fresh and dynamic approach to Shakespeare, creating a performance that is suitable to all ages.

We worked with The Arts Council of Wales’ Young Promoters scheme to bring this exciting project to Betws Primary School, in a scheme that encourages the children to actively learn about theatre, marketing, touring productions, organising a performance, and aims to stimulate new experiences and learning through the arts.
