We know that this morning’s news will be shocking and devastating for students at ALRA North & South

We met at ALRA North in 2011 and founded troublehouse fresh from graduating so it means a lot to us. Helping other ALRA graduates has always been one of our goals. The majority of our productions have included ALRA alumni, and both of us have worked on projects with ALRA students.

To help current ALRA students affected by its closure, we will be using our resources, including our recent appointment as associate artists with the Oldham Coliseum, to provide any opportunities that we can.

We’re currently speaking to other contacts in the industry about ways that we can collaborate to help preserve and demonstrate the hard work of ALRA’s students, be it in the form of a showcase or a production that an invited audience can attend.

In the meantime, we want to share our support – our contact details are below for anyone that wants to get in touch. Please don’t hesitate to reach out if you’d like to chat and we’ll do our best to answer any questions about the industry or share advice.
