Students from primary and secondary schools were given the brief: “What is there at the end of the pathway? Where do those paths take us? New worlds, back in time, to places you never thought existed...”

The resulting shows will be seen on the theatre’s Round stage – Fylingdales were due to perform last night after rehearsing at the SJT earlier this week while students from Eskdale and Caedmon College get their chance tonight.

Diana Logan, the SJT’s Associate Director (Education) says: “We asked the students to create short performances around their own perceptions of ‘pathways’.

Anything can happen in this week of creative and exciting theatre-making.”

Pathways is supported by the Scarborough Pledge, the two-year Broadening Horizons project which uses the borough’s culture and heritage sector to encourage young participants to exercise leadership, take responsibility for their own learning, try new things and take risks.

Tickets for Pathways cost £3 for each day, and are available online at www.sjt.uk.com or from the box office on 01723 370541.
