Who are we?
Moonstruck Astronaut is a not-for-profit community theatre company based in Newport, Shropshire.
Our vision is to bring the local community of Newport together through outdoors theatre projects, first with our children and then extending to all ages.
Our mission is to co-create drama performances that encounter life from a child’s open-minded perspective of wonder in order to foster intergenerational and intercultural friendship.
Based on years of experience teaching drama and directing theatre, we are passionate about the extensive benefits to a community’s wellbeing of taking part in communal creativity.

What do we do?
We run ‘Drama in the Forest’ outdoor drama workshops for children in the school holidays.
We run the Newport Community Youth Theatre at the Hub Newport.
We believe drama and theatre are powerful, delightful tools for enabling everyone’s confidence, self-expression and holistic wellbeing through the communication, creativity and community they foster. We want to help make these ‘tools’ for developing a well-rounded, contented individual accessible to more people in our local community.
