Classes & Workshops

Our Youth Theatre groups are the very essence of our organisation, giving young people the chance to explore their creativity and turn great stories into amazing theatre. We welcome everyone, from the BAFTA winners of the future to those who just want to have fun.

There are multiple ways in which you can get involved in our Youth Theatre, including regular weekly classes, school holiday workshops, and full scale productions.

Youth Theatre Classes

Open Stage is all about making friends, learning new skills and building confidence. No audition is necessary, everyone is welcome.

We work towards our showcase each year where you get the chance to perform on our Main Stage.

If musical theatre is more your thing, then why not try our Centre Stage groups.

Our Discover Drama group provides engaging, fun, and dynamic drama classes for young people and adults with additional needs, in a safe and inclusive environment.
