What is Youth Theatre?
Youth Theatre is a year-long, fun, creative programme for young people. Through weekly sessions, young people will learn performance skills, play games and make theatre in a supportive and safe environment. At the end of their year with us, Youth Theatre members will put all they have learnt into practice in a show on the Storyhouse stage.
