Youth Theatre

Our Youth Theatre runs two groups, and usually meets on Thursdays during term time:

Young Performers for ages 10 - 13

Young Actors for ages 14 - 18

Times are currently:

Young Performers 4.30pm - 5.30pm

and Young Actors 6.30pm - 7.45pm

every Thursday in term time.

The Young Performers are developing a piece of drama based on material from the Cockermouth Heritage Group about evacuees to the area during World War 2.

The Young Actors took part in the Coronavirus Time Capsule project set up by Company 3. They created short, inventive videos to capture their experiences during this extraordinary time.

You can see all the results on our YouTube channel.

Here's the final piece:
