Intermission theatre's story

Intermission Youth Theatre engages young people from London’s inner-city communities who are at risk of offending or who lack opportunity through drama. The Foundation has supported the theatre group in a variety of different ways; initiating links to the Motcomb Street Party who chose Intermission as their Charity Partner in 2013 and 2014 and hosting a special performance of Intermission’s “Wasted” in February 2014 for Foundation Friends and Patrons.

Following a day of volunteering arranged by the Foundation, CapCo made a donation which enabled Intermission to replace the flooring in its theatre space.

As part of Intermission’s partnership work with the Royal Shakespeare Company, the company of young actors visited Uxbridge School in April for a day of workshops to mark to mark Shakespeare’s birthday. Intermission worked with 200 students from Year 7 to Sixth Form.

About Intermission theatre

"Having a professionally laid theatre floor has added to the longevity of the space. The room is used every single day by our charity and also by private hires. We can feel even more proud of our theatre as it looks fantastic." Paul Forster, Director of Education.

"When we had the old floor it looked rubbish. Having a new one makes it feel more like a theatre and less like a church hall." Dandave Roache, Youth Theatre member.

"Intermission helped me understand the context [of the play] better. The energy and the way the language was modernised helped me understand easier. I learnt about dramatic effects words have in performance" - Pupil, Uxbridge School
