Working in the Following Genre:
Stage Shows for Schools and Youth Theatre

Nettie Brown has been involved with amateur theatre for more than 30 years. Initially as a publicist with a few minor acting roles in Pantomimes and plays with FHODS. She has since developed skills in directing both adults and youth plays with PVADS as well as teaching drama at primary schools in Wiltshire. In 2002 Nettie decided to create a Youth Theatre - performing published plays and week long summer workshops - for local youngsters aged from 10 to 18. The summer schools consisted of funny original sketches written by Nettie, as well as dance, poetry and music. It was from these that the ability to write funny, relevant and crowd pleasing plays for youth developed. She continues to direct adult plays to great acclaim including Albert Make us Laugh, 'Allo 'Allo' Midsummer Night's Dream, Comic Potential, Cider with Rosie and a self written stage production of Les Miserables.
Festival success
Under Nettie Brown's direction, PVADS youth theatre have won Best Youth Play at the Harold Joliffe One Act Play festival every year since they first entered this AETF competition in 2004. Last year Call to Duty (available through Lazy Bee scripts) won 11 awards in total through three rounds of the festival including the Five Counties Final. All of Nettie's plays - 'I Remember Pewsey at War', 'Modern Twist', 'Blood', 'Call to Duty' and 'We Are All Individuals' have won best youth award plus a host of technical, directorial, best original script and dramatic endeavour awards. The plays are distinctive in their balance of comedy, facts and emotions and never fail to entertain the audience.
Projects and plays
'The Wiltshire Tales' are three short plays written by Nettie Baskcomb Brown inspired by the beautiful Wiltshire countryside that are for a mix of youth and adult performers.
'Great Bustards' is a short (20 minute) comedy about the reintroduction of Great Bustards onto the Salisbury Plain.
'Circles' is a comedy sketch (15 minutes) about crop circles, tourists and local inspiration.
'White Gold' is the first in a trilogy of one act plays about Stonehenge and it's landscape. This factual drama introduces the first settlers at Stonehenge, a family of Mesolithic hunters - do they hold the answer to this iconic monument?
The remaining two plays will be based on the Neolithic and the Bronze age activity in building Stonehenge.
