Created to run therapeutic theatre projects in the West London area and to take over running of the very successful White City Youth Theatre (WCYT).
Building on this success with the youth groups, WCTP is interested in running drama-based therapeutic sessions for other groups within the local community.
We are now developing short drama-based projects which can be used to support young people not in education or training.
The White City Theatre Project is made up of a partnership between Melanie Thaw and Lucy Foxell. During the past twelve years we have worked together in schools and communities all over London with adults and young people of all ages, developing our methods of using drama therapeutically.
We have worked with charities including West London Zone, Greenhouse Schools project, The London Sports Trust, The Refugee Council, Kids Company and Mencap
