Palace Youth Theatre (PYT) meets weekly during term time and consists of 3 professionally-led youth theatre groups split by age category. Groups work on a variety of projects, with opportunities and access to behind the scenes at the theatre, with performances for friends and family at the end of the term.
No audition is required to join, and new members can try a free taster session before committing to the term fees.
Our PYT 7-11s focuses on confidence building, developing communication skills, and nurturing imagination through storytelling and drama games.
Our PYT 11-14s works to develop creativity and core drama and theatre-making skills, in a fun, supportive environment. Members develop their confidence, self-expression, and teamwork.
Our PYT 14-16s is a creative and social space for young people to develop skills in theatre, filmmaking, and outdoor arts. The group work with professional creatives, gaining the benefit of their knowledge and expertise.
