Marine Youth Theatre

Performing Arts for 7-18 year olds

Participants work alongside our experienced tutors and other young people to develop their creativity and performance skills, explore themes and devise new theatre to share with friends, family and the public.

Sessions are fun, welcoming and inclusive. They support the personal development of young people by improving confidence, social and communication skills.

Members of Marine Youth Theatre will have regular performance opportunities at the Marine Theatre.

We don’t expect young people to have previous experience.

No audition or entry criteria is necessary, just a desire to get involved and work creatively.
