Sign up for The Little Black Cat
In October 2021, CYO kicks off one of our most exciting projects: between October and December, we are inviting young people to join us in composing an opera, The Little Black Cat. As always with CYO projects, everyone is welcome and participation is free. Activities are suitable for age 11+
The finished work will be produced and performed by CYO in partnership with the Norwich Puppet Theatre.
If you would like to take part as a composer, writer or singer, or as part of the backstage crew, please fill in this form. We'll be in touch shortly with details.
Please note that activities take place mostly on Tuesday evenings. If you are under 14, activities will take place from 18:00 - 19:00 at Chesterton Community College; for 14 and over, most of the work will be online, with workshops running from 19:15 - 20:30.
Please note: CYO will be looking at the COVID safety of all our in person activities and has plans to move these online if needed.

I am interested in
Choose as many as you like. From October to December 2021 we will be working mostly with composers, writers and singers, but we would like to hear from you if you are interested in production too. Signing up for more than one activity will not increase the number of workshops you need to attend. Please note that all puppetry elements are being run by the Norwich Puppet Theatre. CYO will not be recruiting young puppeteers.
