Are you interested in acting and the theatre?
Would you like to make new friends and have some fun?
Then why not join the Princes Hall's Youth Theatre?

The Princes Hall's Youth Theatre has been running for over 10 years and is open to all young people between the ages of 5 and 16 - the only requirement is an enthusiasm for theatre!

Tony Allgood, Dougal Irvine and Marcus Churchill, the Youth Theatre Leaders, are very experienced actors and teachers, who live locally. They are aided by Youth Theatre Assistants who are also present at every session. Each term has a set theme or project and students work towards putting on a final presentation to family and friends.

On occasions members have the opportunity to take part in specific workshops such as make up design or stage fighting. If the term's theme fits with a forthcoming show, then sometimes the students watch a professional performance at the Princes Hall. Group sizes are kept to a maximum of 18 students.

The Princes Hall's Youth Theatre is ideal for those who enjoy performing and want to learn more about acting. It is a great opportunity for those wishing to build their confidence in a relaxed and supportive environment.

Members are expected to show commitment to the Youth Theatre and are required to sign a code of conduct. Regular attendance is a condition of membership.
