Everyman Youth Theatre celebrates its 21st birthday this year. We provide a variety of quality performances for young people passionate about acting and performance, in a variety of performance spaces. We work collaboratively with young people aged 11 to 19, to create work through improvisation, script writing and text, exploring theatre for one, immersive theatre, musical comedies and Shakespeare.
The Youth Theatre meet every Sunday 630 to 830 in Chapter Arts Centre, not only providing the company with many opportunities to perform but also aim to broaden the members’ knowledge through fun drama games and skills development. Members of the Youth Theatre also have the opportunity to take their LAMDA exams. The last examination day saw everyone achieve Merits and Distinctions in Acting, and Verse and Prose at Grade 4 to Grade 8. Many of the older members have been supported through their UCAS applications, and drama school auditions with many studying at GSA, East 15, LAMDA, RADA and Rose Bruford. This year, three ex members will be attending East 15, one at LAMDA, one at Arts Ed, with three ex members taking part in the National Youth Theatre and the National Youth Theatre of Great Britain Repertory Company.
The E.Y.T are looking for new members, so if you would like to be part of a Youth Theatre, where you are looking to explore acting and theatre with fun, rigour and creativity then please email firstname.lastname@example.org
