Ocean Theatre Company is a professional company which, in addition to creating exciting and innovative productions, is committed to training young people in a theatrical environment: OCEAN YOUTH THEATRE COMPANY.
We fully stage two major productions per year (Easter & October Half Term).
Currently in our 6th year, DOCTOR DOLITTLE is the next in Ocean Youths exciting list of dynamic and entertaining productions following LES MISÉRABLES, HOW TO SUCCEED, BEAUTY & THE BEAST, TITANIC and many more.
The company is made up of talented local performers who consistently create high quality shows.
We believe that young people should be treated as professionals and as such we employ trained professionals to work with the students. We ensure that all of the staff are all DBS checked.
Ocean strongly believes in a supportive and caring atmosphere that is dedicated to developing the potential in a fun and safe environment. Furthermore, we believe that the young people can grow in personal development through theatrical experiences. We then encourage self belief and confidence building with a focus to developing the students strengths.
Rehearsals are on Saturday afternoons from 1:30pm to 5:30pm with additional rehearsals (technical / dress ) in the theatre closer to the performances. In addition, there may be supplemental sessions for individual vocal work.
The Rotary Club of Ascot principally provides support to well known Local Community activities and raises money for local, national and international humanitarian causes. We promote such events as a 'Youth Speaks" and "Young Chef" competitions and a Schools Music Concert for local schools. We also make awards to selected pupils who have given "Service Above Self" and assist schools by undertaking mock interviews with their students. Local causes supported in recent years include the Ascot Day Centre, Thames & Chiltern Air Ambulance, the North Ascot Community Association, Thames HospiceCare and Riding for the Disabled. We also support some individual requests for funding. We fund an education initiative in Nepal, Shelterboxes for international disaster areas, and have sent donations to support victims of UK flood disasters. However it is not all fund-raising and charity activities - there is also a lively social side to the organisation, with jazz evenings, race nights, garden parties, barbecues and day trips.
