WHARF YOUTH THEATRE

The new Wharf Youth Theatre is a professionally led young actors company, launched in September 2021.

Senior Actors Company

We are looking at refreshing our youth theatre after summer and if you are interested please leave details with

This group is for school years 9-13 (as of September 21) and will be led by Lou Cox
(Year 9 are welcome to enrol in the Senior Actors if they have experience and confidence for this company)

The Senior Actors Company bridges the gap between school drama offering you further practitioner knowledge, a chance to develop your performance skills and many opportunities to perform in our very own theatre. It is a chance to work with like-minded people once a week who share the same passion for drama. You will explore theatre through the ages, engage in practitioner acting theories, work with text and devise your own work. There will be opportunities for students to compete in performance festivals, perform a live play to a paid audience and most importantly have fun and play!

10 week term £90. (concessionary places available – please contact; )

Junior Actors Company

We are looking at refreshing our youth theatre after summer and if you are interested please leave details with

This group is for school years 6-9 (as of September 21) and will be led by Lou Cox
(Year 9 are welcome to enrol in the Junior Actors if they have less experience and confidence for the Senior Company)

The junior actors will be having fun at our theatre workshops, building confidence and gaining skills through drama games and improvisations. We will rehearse and perform scenes from plays and devise our own. We aim to put on an annual show as we progress, on stage in the theatre, which will be very exciting! Our workshops are not only an opportunity to develop acting and drama skills but to make friends and become confident young adults. We encourage all children to reach their full potential in a safe and inclusive environment.

10 week term £75. (concessionary places available – please contact; )
