THE COMMUNITY THEATRE
The Community Theatre is an initiative by Beyond Social Services that rallies volunteers from different walks of life to co-create a show that engages its audience to reflect on the social challenges faced by children and families from low-income backgrounds.
Since 2015, The Community Theatre has developed into a youth development programme that engages both rental and purchased-flat youths to produce interactive performances base on personal experiences. These performances are toured to various rental flat communities which enables youth volunteers to contribute back to their own community despite their challenging situations. Through these performances, audiences are encouraged to contribute their thoughts about the issues at hand through a safe and interactive experience of theatre.
BEYOND SOCIAL SERVICES
Beyond Social Services is a charity dedicated to helping children and youths from less privileged backgrounds break away from the poverty cycle. They provide guidance, care and resources that enable families and communities to keep their young people in school and out of trouble.
