My CREATETour Summit by Fuel Theatre  #whatchange  This season we are excited to have Fuel Theatre and their show Summit, touring from 14th - 16th November, as part of our CREATETour project. The young people from Tuned In! in Redcar will  also be performing a short piece that they have created before each show.
