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

During the Coronavirus crisis, the groups are continuing to meet online:

Young Performers 4pm - 5pm and Young Actors 5.30pm - 6.30pm 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 are joining in the Coronavirus Time Capsule project set up by Company 3. They are creating short, inventive videos to capture their experiences during this extraordinary time.

You can see the results on our YouTube channel.
