Project: 4Front Theatre
Location: Evesham, Worcestershire
My name is Nat and I am one of the founders and Co-directors of 4Front Theatre – a Christian theatre company who tour around the UK in churches, prisons, primary schools, community venues and most recently on YouTube.
Originally from Yorkshire, I now live in the beautiful Worcestershire countryside just outside Worcester with my husband, Rob, our daughter, Arrietty, and we have another baby on the way in Jan ‘23.
I have a first class degree in Performing Arts and Theology and have also worked as a freelance actress, presenter, administrator and creative for various other organisations. I am passionate about sharing the gospel through theatre, creativity and the arts, particularly with families and children.
About My Project
4Front Theatre was founded in 2014 and seeks to ‘put faith at the 4Front’ of everything we do. Our productions / content is overtly Christian as we are passionate about sharing the gospel through theatre, creativity, and the arts.
We tour theatrical productions across the UK to theatres, churches, schools, and prisons, as well as festivals, hospitals, conferences, and other community venues. We also run workshops, children’s events, and a successful YouTube channel, Virtual Sunday School, from which we have even launched a fun faith-filled family camp run in August.
One of our primary areas of work is with families and children through our production ‘Fisherman’s Tail’ which is an hour long musical about the life and miracles of Jesus. This production tours Primary schools and community venues across the UK – it’s been performed as far north as Shetland and as far south as Plymouth! This production has an accreditation from the Church of England as a recommended resource for their Understanding Christianity syllabus which is used in over 6500 schools in the UK.
As well as this we run a successful YouTube channel – Virtual Sunday School – which has almost 7500 subscribers and approx. half a million views from over 50 different countries around the world.
