The GTC Youth Theatre at The Old Nick

  Youth Theatre logo

If you or somebody you know is interested in joining a youth theatre then you have come to the right spot.

Bring learning to life with a unique experience

We specialise in all aspects of theatre training for children aged 11 to 18. 

Meetings every Tuesday evening during term time from 6pm to 7.30pm

We believe that experiencing theatre and drama through participation inspires young people to develop their own creativity, build their self-confidence and foster a lifelong love of theatre and learning.

The Youth Theatre is run by two of our younger experienced acting members, During the sessions the children learn all aspects of acting as well as gaining knowledge of stagecraft, costume & make-up, and improving their social skills.

The sessions are organised by established actors who have many years of working with aspiring for young actors and actresses to develop their skills in performance, learn new techniques and work with other young people that have a passion for acting.

The season comprises both workshops and production projects, encouraging the budding young actors and actresses to explore acting techniques through performance, but also explore new techniques such as voice skills, physical theatre, devising and approaching scripts, just to name a few.

The Youth Theatre performed a modern version of Little Red Riding Hood in December 2014. The audience reviews varied from "a novel take on a traditional children's story, most enjoyable" to "considering that some were very young, they acted very well".

And in 2015 they performed a thought provoking play about bullying which they had written themselves. All the audience members enjoyed the evening  and left with a new insight into how bullying has moved into the age of social media.
