Join the Minack Youth Theatre
Our Youth Theatre programme offers fun, creative activities for young people age from 5+. Just join our mailing list and we’ll offer you a place on at least 2 workshops a year, appropriate for your age group.
There is no fee for joining our Youth Theatre and all our workshops are free.
Audition for a Show
As a Youth Theatre member you’ll also be kept informed of auditions for productions at the Minack suitable for your age. These take the form of group workshop sessions, in which you’ll get to play little scenes as well as join in theatre games.
Primary Plays in a Day
Workshops often take the form of a fun day in which you’ll get to try out lots of different theatre skills. Working with our professional practitioners, you’ll take part in workshops in acting, dance, music and making stuff (like props for a show). By the end of the day, you’ll have created an amazing show and get to perform it on the Minack stage.
Secondary Plays in a Day
Work with professional directors to create a short piece of theatre that is performed at the end of the day. During the year we work with brand new plays, Shakespeare stories and devised pieces.
