Riverhead Youth Theatre offers drama workshops and theatre training to students’ aged 7 - 18+. Currently the group meets from 9am to 11.30 on a Saturday and operates as one group.  In September 2017 it is proposed that the group will split int a Junior and Senior group with age 11 being the cut off time depending on the maturity and wishes of the young person and workshop leaders.

Our workshop leaders are professionally trained and fully qualified Theatre and Performance teachers. They are also qualified to deliver Arts Award Bronze and Silver and all young people will be encouraged to participate

Youth Theatre workshops are varied and our Saturday sessions provide an entertaining, safe (and challenging!) learning environment where the creative muscles can be exercised and the learning outcomes applied directly to the performance on stage.

Here is just a taste of what our students can expect:

  • Introduction to Drama
  • Physical Theatre
  • Turning Text into Performance
  • Narrative Theatre
  • Improvisation as an Art Form;
  • Developing a Character
  • Physical Theatre
  • Devising
  • Directing
  • Lighting/Sound and Wardrobe
  • Arts Award Bronze and Silver 

The end product always involves a production, whether that is working with a script, devising shows, variety shows or working in the lighting and sound box.
