The Young Company at Huddersfield’s LBT is seeking young people between the ages of six and 17 who are passionate about performing to join them for a new term of drama, discovery and fun.
Whether youngsters are craving the limelight, looking to build their confidence or just wanting to have some fun in a friendly environment, the theatre offers a range of drama activities including weekly classes, performance projects, holiday activities and specialist workshops.
This May half-term, children aged between six and nine will create a performance based on Arabian Nights on the LBT’s main stage and in August young people aged between nine and 21 will take to the main stage in a large scale production. Each term, Young Company members also get the chance to see a professional live show at the theatre.
Spring term began on Monday, January 12, but there are still a few places to be filled on a first-come, first-served basis.
For ages six to eight (Saturday mornings) and nine to 11 years (Thursday evenings), Stage Door Classes are all about imagination and discovery, where younger children can learn about storytelling and let their creativity flourish by getting hands-on with drama, building confidence, and having lots of fun.
Drama Workshop on Wednesday evenings is for anyone in secondary school who is interested in drama and acting as a fun and social activity. It is suitable for all levels of experience and offers an opportunity to make new friends and try out a range of drama styles.
Studio Classes (for nine to 11-year-olds on Thursday evenings and 12 to 17-year-olds on Monday evenings) begin with an audition. For those who are passionate about drama and want to learn more, this class is an opportunity to take an in-depth look at different drama techniques.
Booking forms for the Young Company are available online at www.thelbt.org/young-company . Bursary places are available for young people with special circumstances.
