Our Youth Theatre, split into three companies by age-group, has become the flagship of the school. Students get the opportunity to perform in two productions each academic year, including the renowned "BROADWAY SHOWTUNES" at the Pavilion Theatre each July. Entrance to the youth theatre is via audition only, usually in September each year - with occasional intakes in March.
In addition to the three companies below, our advanced Professional Development Programme also participate in the SHOWTUNES production, as well as taking part in a musical during February half-term. Find out more about PDP here...
