Aberdeen Arts Centre's creative learning programmes and Castlegate Theatre Company productions have brought the zest and energy of performing arts to the whole city of Aberdeen — here's a little selection of recent projects we've delivered or been involved with.
25th June 2022
Castlegate Theatre Company were invited by Aberdeen Inspired to perform at the launch of the Umbrella Project on Shiprow.
Featuring multi-coloured umbrellas suspended across city centre streets, the displays aim to raise awareness of and to celebrate the ‘umbrella’ term of neurodiversity, including ADHD, autism, dyslexia, dysgraphia and dyspraxia. The project also aims to raise awareness of the support that is available to individuals and families. CTC performed an array of songs from their 2022 summer show Aberdeen Arts Centre’s Got the X Idol Get Me Out of Here Strictly not on Ice Big Bake Off Throw Down,

Roald Dahl's Little Red Riding Hood
Presented by Castlegate Theatre Company — June 2020
No nursery rhyme is quite as it seems when Roald Dahl provides the scenes!
Aberdeen Arts Centre’s CTC were due to perform a truly revolting evening full of pure imagination on our stage in June 2020. 'Roald Dahl’s Marvellous Musical Mash Up' was set to be a magical menagerie of music and stories from all your Roald Dahl favourites presented by our talented youth theatre company.
Although the cast are understandably disappointed that their 2020 production could not go ahead, our splendiferous members worked hard from home to bring this infamous Revolting Rhyme to life - and we’re very excited to share it with you all!

Great work, gang!
