Theatre Workshop

Theatre Workshop

Theatre Workshop is for young people who have a passion for theatre and want to develop their creativity and drama skills in our weekly workshops. Our classes offer young performers the chance to explore improvisation, storytelling, and working creatively with actors, designers and writers in a friendly and supportive environment. Theatre Workshop caters for two age groups:

  • Junior Theatre Workshop (ages 7-10)
  • Theatre Workshop (ages 11-18)

You will work in small groups (of no more than 15 students) with others of a similar age, gaining skills, experience and confidence that will be hugely valuable, whatever you want to do in life.
