Creative Learning is at the heart of Theatre Royal Bury St Edmunds work. Youth Theatre Workshops run 4 days a week for ages 8 to 22 and holiday workshops run 3 times a year for ages 6 to 11. In addition the theatre runs external after school drama clubs in 6 local schools. The theatre also works with schools on larger projects such as the Shakespeare Takeover Project, Career Insight Days and Work Experience. The theatre also runs the Young Associates Programme, a year long work placement suitable for ages 18+ looking for their next step into the arts.
Young people looking to explore what’s best for them should contact Associate Artist of Youth Theatre Connie Dent.
Teachers looking to get involved with the theatre’s Creative Learning offerings are encouraged to attend a Teacher Forum evening with Education Officer Hayley Murrow.
