Aged 8-22?

Then the Theatre Royal Youth Theatre could be for you!

 

The Theatre Royal’s Youth Theatre is the only group in the area to be based around a working professional theatre, which means you get to learn from practitioners with industry experience, helping you grow in confidence and become a better performer.

If you are between the ages of 8 and 22 looking for an opportunity to develop your performance skills in a creative and professional environment, we have a variety of groups you can choose from.

No previous acting experience is necessary, just a passion and commitment to creating exciting pieces of drama!

Enrolling couldn’t be easier!
