What is youth theatre?

A youth theatre is a club for young people aged 6 to 18 who come together for a theatre and performing arts activity. Through fun and games, we help our students improve their performing skills and teach them to explore and interpret theatre texts, and every year, we produce a play with each group.
Everyone is welcome to join, regardless of experience or ability. Youth theatre is about providing all young people with the gift of enjoying the arts for life.

Our curriculum

Production Term

During their Production term, the groups focus their energy on creating a play, which is staged at the end of the term.
Productions allow
 our students to get to know each other and bond as a group early on. It also gives them a priceless experience of performing together on stage.

Personal performance

During the Personal Performance term, we focus individually on each student and help them prepare a piece of personal performance, be it an original devised piece, a piece of mime, a poem, or a monologue of their own choosing. This process allows our students to discover great works of theatre, from the Ancient Greeks to Shakespeare, and on to the most modern of contemporary theatre. It also helps the students to develop and sharpen their performance skills.

Skill building and fun

During the Skill Building term, the groups take part in fun and games activities as well as masterclasses on specific skills (such as improv, auditioning, devising, and much more!)
During this period, we provide a fun and valuable activity where they can develop their skills and enjoy themselves in a stress-free way.

Our ethos


We believe in using theatre to help children build their confidence, learn valuable life skills and find themselves through the arts. Theatre is a collective art, built on teamwork, trust and expression. At our classes, students get the chance to express themselves in a safe and welcoming environment, make wonderful friendships that last for years, and leave us with a lifelong love of the arts.

There are three core tenets to our teaching method.

Welcomed:
Everyone is welcome in our group, and there are no exams to pass in order to gain access. We take pride in our group's ability to make new students feel at home very quickly, and we use drama games and exercises to break down the barriers early on, allowing the students to bond and grow together.

 

Challenged:

We believe in challenging our pupils, and taking them out of their comfort zone. For a young child, that might be as simple as going on stage in front of their parents and friends. For a teenager, that might be tackling difficult issues and themes in a play. It is important to be challenged, to succeed, and sometimes to fail in order to grow.

Supported:

We always support and encourage the student through their challenges. We provide our students with a safe environment where they can explore, converse, and build their confidence.
