ANTIGONE will be the Young Company 2018 Summer Project at Malvern Theatres.

Directed by Nic Lloyd, the production will be staged in the Festival Theatre from August 8 to August 10, before going on tour for the first time to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.

At the festival, it will be performed at The Space on the Mile Venue 3, from August 13 to August 18.

A spokesman said: "Malvern Theatres Young Company allows young people the chance to be involved in a professionally staged theatre production, empowering them to take their first steps into a career in theatre.

"We are also excited to announce the second Advanced Course in Drama and Performance for Professional Theatre. The course is designed for students aged 16 years and over who wish to further their knowledge of theatre and performance skills. The course will once again be led by seasoned professionals and renowned industry professionals.

"Auditions for both the MTYC production of Antigone, and the Advanced Course will take place in January 2018."
