If you are interested hearing about new projects, please fill in the NEW ENQUIRY form and we’ll be in touch when a project becomes available.

“This is an excellent opportunity for the children to express themselves. LYT has given the children confidence and taught them to appreciate current issues through drama. This is needed in our community.”

The Senior Youth Theatre is a place to build acting skills, vocal range, stage presence, creativity and confidence. You will be expected to take part in the full project.  Workshops and rehearsals are built on drama games, script work, improvisation and characterisation.
