Projects

Grand Union excels at spectacular shows featuring professional performers, but we also produce similar work with amateur and student performers, often custom-tailored to local needs, and including participatory workshops and education activities.

These pages describe a variety of such projects past and present. Many of them provide a useful model or template that can be replicated or developed elsewhere in the country with similar participants or to suit different local circumstances and conditions.
