We aim to produce at least two tours a year: a national tour travelling throughout the inland waterways of England by narrowboat; and a regional road tour mainly in Yorkshire and Lancashire.
Mikron's Youth & Community Theatre runs four weekly drama workshops for young people aged 5 - 15 and for adults.
We also coordinate a broad programme of professional arts and cultural activities at Marsden Mechanics Hall.
Mikron particularly aims to attract audiences who may not regard themselves as 'theatregoers' in the conventional sense, or those who may find it difficult to access theatre centres, whether for geographical, cultural or economic reasons.
This aim is partly realised through our choice of venue: wherever possible, we choose venues such as local pubs, clubs or village halls, which are informal, familiar and non threatening spaces and often the focal point of the community.
The style of the Company's work, with its mixture of humour, music, physical theatre and strong narrative, using minimal sets and props, is designed to be entertaining and accessible, while the subject matter is thought-provoking and relevant to people's lives. The shows can therefore be appreciated and enjoyed by a wide range of people.
