Youth Theatre

Fun, exciting and creative!


Our youth theatre offers fantastic opportunities for anyone aged 7-21 years to create dynamic ensemble performance.

Our ethos is all about unlocking an individual’s creative potential through playful anarchic weekly sessions. As well as in-house shows at our theatre in Ringwood, there are opportunities throughout the year to perform street theatre and site-specific work.

Our Youth theatre offers increased self-confidence, resilience, tolerance, fearlessness, curiosity, collective identity, celebrating individualism, tools for managing emotion, friendship, romance, empathy, liberation, collaboration and co-operation; With lots of laughing, acting, socialising, moving, inspiring, supporting, script reading, devising, daring, floor-sweeping, ball throwing, people throwing, mischief and mayhem.

Encouraging young people to stand tall in their own shoes or walk in somebody else’s is at the heart of what we do.

Come for a taster session!

We know starting something new can be a daunting experience, especially for young people, so we invite them to come for a taster session with no obligation. We’re sure they will love it in which case they can enrol for a term at a time.
