Live Youth Theatre

Young people aged 10 - 25 (school year 6 upwards) meet new friends, develop self-confidence and create original plays that reflect their views and opinions in weekly sessions delivered by some of the most exciting theatre makers in the region.

Live Youth Theatre meet weekly throughout the school year, starting in late September. Over three exciting terms young people will develop their skills in stage craft, develop a new play to perform on the stage and explore scripts that have been produced and performed here at Live Theatre.

Live Youth Theatre is the largest free theatre and drama programme for young people in the North East of England.

Live Youth Theatre is back from Tue 28 Sep 2021 and we can't wait to welcome young people back into the theatre! ...and it's still COMPLETELY FREE!

We are so excited to be opening our doors to young people again and are now looking for new members to join Live Youth Theatre 2021.

We will be back in the building and creating theatre in person once again, but one thing that took us completely by surprise last year was how many of our members thrived and even preferred doing their sessions digitally over Zoom, from the comfort of their own home.

That is why we have decided to expand our Youth Theatre with extra sessions and even more amazing drama facilitators to enable us to cater for everyone's needs.

We will now be providing both IN PERSON sessions in the Theatre and DIGITAL SESSIONS over Zoom for those who prefer them or find them more accessible and easier to attend.

To apply for a free place please complete the application form below as fully as possible by Monday 20 September 2021.
