Youth Theatre

The Dukes Youth Theatre programme provides opportunity for young people to develop confidence, team work, communication and performance skills.

Our groups run in several terms each year, each culminating in the chance for young people to perform on one of our stages. Sessions take place in our Moor Space building on Moor Lane and are led by The Dukes Creative Learning team.

Our groups are:

  • Juniors (ages 8-12)
  • Seniors (ages 13-16)
  • Young Company (ages 16-18)
  • RedBananaLlama
  • Shattering Images

Junior and Senior Youth Theatre groups are priced at £80 per term and the Young Company at £100 per term.


We are keen to ensure that no young person misses out on the benefits of performance due to financial constraints.

All our groups have bursaries available for those in receipt of means tested benefits (proof of eligibility required.) Please contact either Carl Woodward or Nicola Markham for an informal conversation about bursaries or youth theatre.

Current term dates

Each term lasts twelve weeks with no sessions during half term.

Please check back for updates.
