Who We Are
Holybourne Youth Theatre hold four workshops, split by age, each Saturday to teach acting and stage skills by experienced drama coaches. Several times per year there is an opportunity to audition for places in the youth productions and the annual Holybourne pantomime (in conjunction with the Adult Theatre). We aim to produce shows that cater for all levels of ability from chorus and walk on roles, to minor speaking and major lead parts. This allows each member to develop and gain confidence at their own pace, and most of all to have fun. We also encourage youth members to experience backstage roles in sound, lighting, stage management, prompting and prop construction.
- Aims and objectives: Promote and sustain amateur dramatics for all ages.
- Services and activities offered: Saturday workshops and productions that encourage all aspects of drama. The Youth Theatre play an integral part of Holybourne Adult Theatre, participating in the yearly pantomime and putting on their own productions.
- Restrictions: For 6-18 year olds
- Times: Saturday workshops, summer school, and productions through out the year.
The Youth theatre is integral to the personal, social, political, aesthetic and educational development of young people. The theatre art is a universal expression of human kind and helps young people to find their place and voice in society.
The Youth theatre is open to all young people to participate in high quality, challenging and meaningful theatre experiences which engage them emotionally, intellectually and physically.
The Youth theatre will reflect and represent young people from all communities and the diversity of the world in which we live and will have access to a diverse range of cultures, genres, art forms and approaches.
Young people and those who work with them have the right to work in safe environments.
We have been awarded a CAT mark!
