YOUTH & EDUCATION
Welcome to the Torch Youth Theatre & Education Page
Torch Theatre’s Education Programme is run by Torch Education Officers Johnny Lock and Chloe Wheeler who last year won a Community Arts Award for their work with JC Theatre Company, an educational theatre company who work all over Wales performing educational shows to young people as well as facilitating educational drama workshops.
Johnny & Chloe trained at East 15 Acting School where they graduated with a BA Honours in Community Theatre. Since leaving East 15 in 2008 the pair have worked as freelance actors and facilitators all over the UK including a variety of different community groups ranging from young offenders and NEET young people (not in education, employment or training), to adults and young people with learning difficulties.
In October 2013 Johnny & Chloe became the Torch’s Youth Theatre and Education Officers and are the first point of contact for all of the theatre’s work in these areas.
Youth Theatre for professional drama classes at affordable prices!
At Torch Youth Theatre we pride ourselves on providing a fun, creative, safe environment for young people to make friends, build confidence and express themselves, as well as learning new drama skills and creating theatre. We welcome young people of all abilities from across Pembrokeshire.
