Fire up your imagination at Youth Theatre!

Our Youth Theatre groups meet weekly and offer young people fun, friendship, exploration, skills development and the opportunity to take part in performances throughout the year.

Groups are run by local, friendly leaders, with many years experience working in the arts. Sessions provide a wide range of benefits for young people interested in performance, including:

  • Developing your confidence and boosting self esteem
  • Improving communication skills and developing teamwork skills
  • Broadens young people’s horizons through new experiences and friendships
  • Provides a safe, fun hub to be creative and explore the arts
