Inter Theatre Company


Facilitators and directors, Jill Young and Steve Mitchell, had been working independently in professional and amateur theatre, education, social services and with people with disabilities for the last 25 years and met whilst directing and musically directing pantomime in 2010.

They originally formed M Y Theatre Company to provide a professional performance training environment for late teens and early adults and staged numerous shows, musicals and tours including their own works, entered into the Buxton Fringe, and attracted a wider range of adults and abilities. They also work in schools delivering theatre in education.

In the spring of 2012, whilst working for The Regent Theatre, Stoke on Trent, we set up our first integrated choir and drama sessions, working with able bodied and physically and learning disabled adults on issue based acting and improvisation. We won the Spirit of the Festival Award at the Berterelli Foundation sponsored Regent Academy Creative Arts Festival 2012 and have since created choir, drama, music, dance and film groups across the county, made up of learning and physically disabled adults and their friends and carers. We have since been featured as part of a BBC film and visited by royalty.

Our members are involved in every aspect of performance, from acting, singing and dancing through writing, directing, staging and performing musically all the way to sourcing media exposure and publicising our up and coming events. They are not only an opportunity to hone your performance and vocal skills but a chance to meet new friends, whatever your age, ability or talents.

Inter Theatre Company are always looking for talented, enthusiastic performers to join us. Whether your passion is for acting, singing, dancing or all of the above – we would love you to come and see what we can offer you. And just as importantly, what you can offer us!

“Since Shaun has been attending the drama and choir groups .. his confidence to express himself and the way he reacts with other people has increased in leaps and bounds.” – Shane and Debby Waters – parents
