Youth Theatre

Our Youth Theatre sits at the heart of our creative Learning Centre, which is currently located at Good Vibes Academy, Newbury. We now have over 150 local young people joining in each week - sign up for this coming term and join them!

Our Autumn 2023 term timetable is as follows:

Please note: If you wish to take part in the 2024 Infant and Junior Youth Theatre production you will need to join at the beginning of the spring term.
These tables refer to school years, not ages.

Our Spring 2024 term timetable is as follows:

Our Youth Theatre offers young performance the chance to make new friends and learn performance skills with the support of our professional theatre practitioners. Every year we aim for all groups perform on the Corn Exchange stage, producing large scale performances with a professional team.

Casting workshops will take place in early February; the date and further details will be given at the beginning of the term. The Infant and Junior Youth Theatre production will take place in the summer term.

As an openly accessible youth theatre, there is no audition process and registration works on a first come, first served basis.

If your child is interested in joining Youth Theatre, please complete the registration form below. Once this form has been processed you will receive an email inviting to your child to a no obligation taster session.

Your child's no obligation taster session can take place at any time but Youth Theatre is not priced pro rata so joining points are either at the start of term or the start of the half term.

Sibling discounts and bursary options are available.

Please note: Parents/guardians must complete a registration form for each child. If your child is involved in multiple groups (i.e. Youth Dance and Youth Theatre), you will need to complete a registration form for both as they act as a permission slip for the activity, not the child.
