At The Acorn we believe that putting on great live events is not the whole story. A true community theatre must give people the opportunity to try, learn new skills, and take part. The activities below are great fun for all ages, giving you the opportunity to meet like-minded people, learn new skills and be a part of the performing arts community in Penzance.
Please contact the class contact for further information and to book a place.
