Youth Theatre

Are you aged between 11 and 25? Do you want to learn new skills, meet new people and perform?

Our Youth Theatre meets on a weekly basis throughout the year in Newcastle east, west and central. With no auditions and no fees to pay, our Youth Theatre is a perfect way to get a taste for theatre or to develop your performance skills, with our friendly and supportive team of theatre professionals. 

Live Theatre encourages all members to work to achieve Arts Award. We offer work placements specifically for youth theatre members, providing an insight into: box office, administration, technical and stage management, marketing, the chance to shadow a drama worker, and also offer career advice.
