Every young person has the right to self-express through drama and creativity. We know that barriers often exist for deaf, disabled and/or neurodivergent (DDN) young people.
So we decided to create our very own free, accessible TripleC Youth Theatre! We’re launching in January 2024. Sessions will take place at 53two theatre in central Manchester (details below).
Sign up via Eventbrite and make sure you register for the session/time slot that would be suitable for you or your young person.

Our first term will take place weekly on Mondays from 15th January to 25th March.
There will be two age groups: 8 -11 years and 12 -16 years. The younger age group session will be from 4.30pm – 5.30pm (1 hour). The older age group from 6.00pm – 7.30pm (1.5 hours).
It’s free to attend. We ask young people to commit to attending across the term.
The Youth Theatre sessions will be led by TripleC Youth Lead Ged Mulherin alongside Nickie Miles Wildin & Andy Duffy. We will also occasionally be joined by guest actors, writers and directors who will share their experiences within the industry.
Sessions are designed for young deaf, disabled and/or neurodivergent (DDN) people with a passion for the performing arts. Together we’ll explore creativity through the use of drama-based games, improvisation, character-building, role play and storytelling.
The Eventbrite link to book your place on the youth theatre is now open.
Hi, I’m Ged Mulherin and I will be co-running the Youth Theatre.
I’m one of the co-founders of TripleC. My passion is working with young people and using drama & improvisation to encourage and develop confidence and wellbeing. I trained as an actor and have 25 years experience working in both theatre & television.
For the last few years I have been focusing on working with young people with an interest in theatre and the creative arts.
I work regularly at Z-arts as a drama sessions leader and creative educator. I also work as a professional storyteller, providing story time and drama workshops in libraries throughout Greater Manchester.
The whole idea will be to encourage and
develop talent in the young Manchester DDN
