Adopt An Actor!

Following the great success of our Adopt An Actor Community Project last year we have decided to give it another go this year! The project allows young people from the City of Manchester who have never been to the theatre before to adopt an actor in our Christmas Production which is A Christmas Carol this year.

Each young person receives a weekly letter and information pack from their actor during the rehearsals of the show. These letters explain how the show is developing and allow the participants to find out more about life backstage at the Library Theatre. The project then culminates in a visit to the theatre during the festive period to meet their actor and watch a performance of A Christmas Carol

If you know a young person who may be interested in taking part in this project please get in contact with the Community and Education Department on 0161 234 1922 or by emailing

We are able to work with children aged 8 to 16 on this project.
