Saturday Groups:
Autumn Term: Saturday 8th October – Saturday 10th December 2016.
Spring Term: Saturday 14th January – Saturday 18th March 2017.
Summer Term: Saturday 29th April – Saturday 1st July 2017.

What Happens?

The sessions cover a wide range of skills including text, improvisation, mime, Shakespeare, mask and music and of course lots of games. It also gives you the opportunity to increase confidence, make new friends and improve team work.

We aim to organise one trip in the Autumn and Spring terms to see a professional show at Warwick Arts Centre. In the Summer term, it’s all hands on deck to produce an original performance which is shown to friends and family in Warwick Arts Centre’s Studio Theatre.

Youth Theatre costs £50 per term for Saturday groups, and is paid via the box office before the start of each term. The cost of attending a show is additional to this.
