Centrestage

Centrestage Music Theatre in James Little Street, Kilmarnock is a fantastic Charity who provide the people in our Community with the opportunity to participate in Music, Drama or Dance regardless of age, ability, background or experience.  As well as offering classes for people of all ages for a small fee, through their Outreach Projects they work closely with vulnerable and disadvantaged groups within our area including Children and Adults with Learning and Physical Support Needs.  These projects are all funded through Charitable donations and revenue needs to constantly be sourced to keep these valuable initiatives running.

They currently pioneer a Reconnect project which involves visiting HMP Bowhouse weekly to deliver workshops in art, music, song writing, creative writing and poetry. Their aim is to help enable these men to gain the social and leadership skills required on release in order to allow them to create new destinations on their journey through education and employment. 

Musical Generations is a project which aims to increase contact and understanding between all generations through social afternoons in local care homes.  Centrestage staff and Volunteers visit once a week to entertain and converse with the Elderly residents and their carers or family members.  For many elderly people who perhaps have a decreased ability to communicate through language, music can play a key therapeutic role and allow them to be physically and emotionally uplifted. 

This is just a very small snapshot of the amazing work happening everyday at Centrestage – our Community is a better place because of the work they do.  For that reason, we are very proud to physically and financially support them as our chosen Charity.
