YOUTH THEATRE

 

Both our Youth Theatre groups currently meet here at the Torch, weekly, on Tuesday afternoons and evenings.

 

 

JUNIOR YOUTH THEATRE 

  

Our Junior Youth Theatre takes place at the Torch on Tuesday afternoons during term time.  Our JYT is split into 2 age brackets with 2 separate sessions: 

 

  • Session 1: Tuesday 4pm – 5.15pm (academic years 3 & 4)
  • Session 2: Tuesday 5.30pm – 6.45pm (academic years 5 & 6)

  

During the term the children have the opportunity to learn new skills and make new friends by taking part in various drama games and acting exercises. These sessions are designed to raise young people’s confidence through acting and role play and just so happen to be great fun!

  

“The Junior Youth Theatre has been great for my daughter Alex. It has given Sunday mornings a focus and I have really noticed her confidence grow.” Becci Johnson – Parent

  

“My daughter thoroughly enjoys her weekly session at Torch. She gets to meet lots of new friends and speaks highly of her tutors.” Kim Styles – Parent

  

“From a parent’s point of view, the experience has been invaluable for our never ever quiet, but shy in public daughter! We really feel she has grown immensely in confidence, blossomed as a comic talent and is now rarely shy to make a quip, read aloud, or present her project work to her class mates and others.” Allison Kielczewski – Parent

  

“It’s fun and interesting. There are lots of people there to make friends with.” Alex Tuddenham – Junior Youth Theatre

  

“Sunday mornings are no longer boring, Johnny and Chloe are fab” Maisie Millichip – Junior Youth Theatre
