1812 Youth Theatre & Tykes

The 1812 Youth Theatre Company meets weekly in term time to take part in workshops, or rehearsals for productions, or to devise projects. Members are encouraged  to develop their acting skills, to learn about the technical and 'backstage' aspects of theatre and to explore new ideas. Working to create  good theatre takes a lot of discipline and commitment - to the production and to everyone else in it. It's also a lot of fun. Working  together like this does a lot to increase our members' self confidence and self esteem and their ability to express themselves and to communicate.

Together members produce challenging and innovative work to an extremely high standard in around three productions a year. Some join forces with the adult 1812 Company. In fact, some go on to join them regularly. Several of our members have successfully auditioned for the National Youth Theatre, being cast in productions at venues such as York Theatre Royal and West Yorkshire Playhouse. And some have gone on to Drama School in London or to university to study theatre.

But perhaps the greatest achievements are those that are most difficult to measure. The loyalty and sense of identity which develop and the relationships that are formed accompany the young people throughout their lives, whatever their chosen future may be.

Membership is open to anyone aged 9 to 18 and costs £45 per term.

There are about 50 in the Company, divided into two age groups.

Tuesday 6-8pm -  13-18 Years       

Wednesday-5-6:30pm -  9-12 Years
