Core Actors

The Core’s Youth Theatre offers weekly workshops during term time for young people to develop their creativity through working with professional theatre practitioners. The Youth Theatre is a great place to make new friends, have fun and learn new skills. This term the actors will be working on an existing play which will be performed at The Core in November. It’s a great chance to get all the buzz of putting on a play and making new friends.

Wednesdays 5pm – 6.30pm
Price: £80 per term (term starts Wed 17 January, showcase performance Sat 24 March)
