  • Mission statement

    The Young Actors Theatre is a unique and vibrant community based theatre which provides drama classes, workshops and productions for young people with the opportunity for professional development in the performing arts.

    Our mission is to nurture young people’s creative and personal development through inclusive and transformative performance. We believe that this builds confidence and improves social interaction.

    Although many of our young people go on to highly successful careers in theatre, film or television, we consider the enormous boost to their self-esteem to be the central and lifelong benefit of attending the Young Actor’s Theatre.


    OUR AIMS
    To have fun through drama
    To develop drama, social and life skills through excellent teaching
    To foster an appreciation of the arts
    To recognize, nurture and develop talent

    We offer a range of tailor made workshops led by industry professionals for schools, colleges and businesses either here at the theatre or in your home venue. For younger children we offer basic story telling and improvisation workshops, for schools we can work with the curriculum - a set text for example - and for businesses we can offer presentation skills, team building etc.
