Edinburgh Fringe Festival 

2021 - 2022 Project

In August 2022, Footsteps to Theatre took a group of young people from the local area to take part in and perform at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.

Over the 5 day course of our trip, our cast performed 3 shows of their production of Oliver! Jr. at a fringe venue,  theSpace @ NiddryStreet, just off the Royal Mile. They also had the opportunity to promote their show through 3 street performances on the Fringe tasters stages and by flyering throughout central Edinburgh. Our performers got the opportunity to step into different roles, both in the show and backstage, by gaining more experience and seeing different sides of theatre. All our actors were cast as two different parts and characters, so they switched between roles for each performance. 

When they were not performing they didn't just sit still! The group took part in an all singing all dancing touring Silent Disco, led by Silent Adventures, went to see 4 other Fringe shows and got to see the beautiful city sights and take part in enjoyable activities, such as wandering through the busy streets of the festival and exploring the National Museum of Scotland.

At the end of our project, we celebrated with a local performance at the Victoria Hall, to showcase what we had presented at the Edinburgh Fringe to the local community. 

This experience would not have been possible without the kindness and generosity of our supportive sponsors, to whom we thank greatly.
