Youth Theatre Classes

Our Youth Theatre members attend engaging weekly sessions which involve games and exercises that aim to develop their skills as theatre-makers, performers and people. Directors leading the sessions will support them with their confidence and challenge them to be bold, creative and passionate in their work. Exploring various aspects of performing arts we encourage young people develop thier technique in performance. These classes cover areas including acting, voice, devising, script work, improvisation, mime & physical thatre. As well as this we aim to offer exciting opportunities to youth theatre members where possible with trips, masterclasses & information about other industry events.
