In On The Act is a brand new podcast created by us – the Young Programmers, part of Young Storyhouse.

Who are the Young Programmers?

We are a group of 14-25 year olds who (pre-pandemic) meet at Storyhouse and learn from arts industry professionals how to organise and run events and festivals, culminating in us creating our very own event or festival.

What is In On The Act?

As organising real-life events hasn’t been possible in 2020, we have spent the last few months meeting virtually to produce a podcast series to share all that we’ve learnt about the arts industry. We’ve interviewed actors, creatives and backstage teams to explore the world of theatre, how it has changed in 2020, and what theatre means to us all – in lockdown and in life!

We’ll release one episode a week, every Monday at 7pm.
