These groups offer young people a platform to have their say, to discuss what they care about, and give them a voice as they develop skills towards creating their own original pieces of theatre for an audience.
The skills young people learn and the confidence built will facilitate their activities in life and education, and also feed their creativity. This will support decision making as well as developing imagination and vision.
- Basic drama and acting skills through play and games
- Character creation and development
- Improvisation and thinking on our feet

“Young people need a voice. A say. People assume to know what they care about, but I am here to support them in showing what they care about. That is the beauty of theatre, and the beauty of giving young people ownership in creating something that is theirs.” Becky Dobson
