What happens at The Tinderbox Youth Theatre?
The Tinderbox Youth Theatre gives children and teenagers the opportunity to explore the world of drama and theatre. Through games, physical and vocal warm-ups, devised and scripted drama, they will develop their acting skills and some may even become our future theatre-makers. Free taster sessions are always available.
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 showcases. WEEKLY WORKSHOPS WILL EITHER BE PART OF THE REHEARSAL PROCESS FOR A PRODUCTION or WILL BE TECHNIQUE AND SKILLS- BASED.
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 led by industry professionals.
What to wear:
All members of Youth theatre are required to wear blacks. This means they need to wear PLAIN, BLACK JOGGERS/LEGGINGS and a TINDERBOX T-SHIRT. Order forms are emailed to you for Tshirts and hoodies just before the start of each term.
