It was very tense being at the funding meeting last night but we were thrilled when they agreed to our funding application put in jointly with Harwell Primary School to get some staging. Yay to being able to see everyone!

What people are saying about Gobo…
I’m so grateful to Amy for starting up Gobo and for giving my daughter the opportunity to really shine doing something she loves!
No other youth theatre I’ve come across makes such great quality training in acting, singing, dancing and stagecraft available to children from such a wide range of backgrounds through their bursary scheme.
Gobo is an amazing place where young people build friendships, learn new skills, develop these skills and build their confidence !
In my one year in Gobo, from a really shy and not confident person I became the one who played the main part in a play and was able to stand on stage with confidence! I loved each single session!
I’m really thrilled with how my daughter has developed her skills since joining Gobo. She’s always loved performing but I was blown away by her performance in Princess Whatsername.
I signed her up for Gobo because I thought she’d enjoy it, not for “professional development” so I wasn’t expecting such a step-change in her skill level. She’s advanced so much this year, in particular with her singing. A whopping great thank you!
