Exploring a range of different theatre genres and developing a wide variety of performance skills, our Junior sessions are perfect for young people that want to be creative. Our Juniors work towards regular performances, whether that be a performance of well-known script or something they have created themselves – each term is completely different. All members have the option to not only perform, but also learn about our backstage craft – whether that be directing scenes or learning about sound design. You do not need to have any previous theatre experience to take part, just be ready to get involved and have loads of fun! Sign up here.
