Playhouse Youth

playhouse youth

Our youth offer consists of creative projects, workshops and productions for anyone aged between 5 and 25. Over 500 young people access the Playhouse every week both in the theatre building and also in our dedicated creative space for young people, First Floor.

The programme’s innovative approach combines outstanding professional artists and qualified youth workers to offer creative experiences that encourage young people to explore the world and their place within it, building their confidence and raising aspirations. In addition to the many benefits that participation in theatre can bring, young people can also gain qualifications and work experience to prepare them for the future.
