Youth Theatre

our youth theatre has been cancelled until the end of april due to the current uk government and uk theatre guidelines - more updates to follow

The Old Rep Youth Theatre is a fantastic opportunity for young people to develop a brand new show to be performed onstage at The Old Rep Theatre. Learning from our professional tutors, our youth theatre caters for young people with all levels of ability. Whether you are an experienced performer, or just want to have fun and try out something new, The Old Rep’s Youth Theatre is a brilliant chance to learn new skills, meet new friends and perform onstage at Birmingham’s iconic theatre.

The Youth Theatre will feature a Senior and a Junior group, and both groups will get involved in some Acting, Dancing and Singing. No need to worry if you’re less experienced or interested in one of these areas, we will tailor the sessions around what you want to do!

Junior Youth Theatre (8-13 year olds) - 25 places max.
Senior Youth Theatre (14-19 year olds) - 25 places max.

The Youth Theatres will meet on Tuesday evenings at The Old Rep Theatre. The Junior group will meet from 5pm - 7pm, and the Senior group from 6.30pm - 8.30pm.

Our Youth Theatre runs twice per year, with Term 1 running from September-February, and Term 2 running from February-July. We work on a twice-yearly basis to ensure that our young people have enough time to create an excellent performance with their groups.

The Youth Theatre costs £150 to sign for a full term (September-February). Dates for Term 2 are below:
