Youth Theatre

Kirkgate Youth Theatre is held on Thursday evenings at The Kirkgate Centre in Cockermouth.

Sessions are fun and challenging, and include games, improvisation, devising, script work, voice and movement.

It is a great space to make new friends, develop confidence and learn drama skills.

Kirkgate Youth Theatre works towards two new productions each year. Everyone is welcome and you do not need any previous experience to attend.

We have two groups:

Young Performers - Ages 10 – 13 @ 4.30 pm
Young Actors - Ages 14 – 18 @ 6.30pm

Classes are £5 a session

We currently have no places available for the younger group, however we are happy to add your name to the waiting list.

There are a few spaces available in the older group.

During the Summer Term 2021 we are very excited to be working on a project inspired by Dorothy Wordsworth, leading to short outdoor performances as part of the Cockermouth Live Festival. We’re looking at all sort of aspects, from her relationship with Nature, her relationship with her brother, William, to our relationship with our surroundings and we ask - would Dorothy be a young activist if she was alive today?
