The Owls have teamed up with a leading performing arts school on a project worth Shouting about.

Sheffield Wednesday’s community programme is working with Carney Academy, in Nether Edge, on plans to roll out new SHOUT workshops to schools and community centres across the region.

The workshops will offer TV and theatre-acting training, as well as real opportunities to perform, to South Yorkshire youngsters.

Carney hopes that the workshops will help ‘build confidence and social skills’ in youngsters, as well as teaching them important performance and theatre techniques.

Spencer Taylor, community development manager at SWFC, said: “The SHOUT programme is all about giving young people the training and resources they otherwise wouldn’t have access to - and that’s why this partnership is such a great match.

“Our community programme is focused on giving our young people something to shout about, whether it’s opportunities in football, dance or performing arts.”

The Carney Academy is run by West End and Broadway director Ruth Carney-Nash, who told The Star she is excited to be working with a team with such an incredible legacy.

“Through this programme, young people - who perhaps wouldn’t normally engage with the arts - will be able to tap into a wealth of experience and be exposed to new skills - it’s an exciting time.”

The SHOUT workshops will launch in Sheffield next year at a date to be fixed.
