Youth Theatre

Youth Theatre

Holybourne Youth Theatre hold four workshops, split by school year, 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. 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.
  • Age range: From school year 3 to the end of 6th form
  • Times:Saturday workshops, summer school, and productions throughout the year.

Our session leader is Hollie McGill, she studied dance at Roehampton university and was a youth member herself for many years. She is ably supported by enthusiastic members of the adult theatre group.
