A theatre company nurturing the next generation of young actors and with a centre in Allerton Bywater, is continuing its good work with the launch of online classes.

Duckegg Theatre Company, with a school for young people aged three to 19, at Park Lane, Allerton Bywater, will hold online classes from now until the end of the coronavirus isolation period available in homes of children in the Yorkshire and Lincolnshire areas.

Nicky Hanna, of Duckegg, said: “It’s lovely to see the kids participating in their classes from home and engaging with each other in these unprecedented times.”

She added: “It really seems to give them a boost and a sense of community. We have had quizzes, book clubs, watched parties and our students have self-taped pop videos/TV shows from their own home (in addition to their weekly classes).”
