Tinderbox Youth Theatre
Update: As long as the Government roadmap, to see us out of lockdown, stays the same, Youth Theatre will be returning to in-person sessions w/c 19th April until the school summer holidays.
Restrictions to keep us safe will still be in place: social distancing, temperature checks, mask wearing for 11+ on entry and exit, hand sanitising, and thorough cleaning of our workspace.
What happens at The Tinderbox Youth Theatre?
The Tinderbox Youth Theatre gives children and young people the opportunity to explore their imaginations. Through games, physical and vocal warm-ups, devised and scripted drama, they will develop their acting skills and become our future theatre makers.
All children will have the chance to perform at least once a year. The opportunities range from outdoor plays, to community based events, to stage shows, to concerts. WEEKLY WORKSHOPS WILL EITHER BE PART OF THE REHEARSAL PROCESS FOR A PRODUCTION OR WILL BE TECHNIQUE AND SKILLS BASED DRAMA WORKSHOPS. Edit Mar 2021- all in-person performances are postponed until Covid restrictions are sufficiently lifted. However, the Youth Theatre continue to develop projects online, leading to recorded performances and sharings.
What to expect from The Tinderbox Youth Theatre
Being a member of the Tinderbox Youth theatre, finds a part of your character that you know is there but may have been hidden away.
By spending time rehearsing and performing with friends who love what you love, your confidence grows and memories start to form. Tinderbox Youth Theatre is a very special thing.
Youth Theatre requires a good level of commitment and teaches the students patience, teamwork and respect for their fellow actors. Youth Theatre is more than a weekly club- students give so much of themselves to it. Their hard work matters to them and the performances are a celebration of that. During long-term rehearsal processes, students will be asked to attend some weekend (Sat or Sun) rehearsals near to the time of performance.
The holiday workshops are not just for the Youth theatre! They are open to everyone. Keep a look out on our social media platforms aswell for upcoming workshops.
During the longer school holidays, a range of special events (including Summer and Easter Schools) will be available to book into, including unique opportunities to be part of workshops held by industry professionals.
