Do you love drama? Do you have something to say about society? Are you 18-25 years old?

Our Young Theatre Makers create plays that inspire other young people to talk about challenging issues.

The programme runs twice each year and we need YOU to make it happen.

The 12 week programme includes …

  • Participating in drama workshops

  • Performing the play in a range of schools and youth settings
  • Professional practice training sessions
  • Work experience placements and support with finding and applying for employment, education and training opportunities.

The Young Theatre Makers programme uses drama to help participants …

  • Build self-confidence
  • Increase social connections
  • Develop self discipline
  • Get job-ready
  • Gain access to the arts industry

We meet on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday afternoons, 1-5pm. Travel is reimbursed and Lunch is provided.

Our next programme will run in September 2020, but follow us on social media to keep up-to-date on other opportunities.
