Youth Theatre

Our Youth Theatre programme is the place where most people start at the Octagon, with groups taking place throughout the week and on weekends. Our Youth Theatre is inclusive and is open to any young person. You don’t need any experience to join – just lots of enthusiasm and energy!

Youth theatre is full of exciting opportunities to see, make and perform theatre. Sessions are divided into 10 week terms which vary in content; from a skills development term, culminating in an informal sharing of what they have learned, to a production focused term working towards a performance.


Our weekly youth theatre sessions will return in January 2020 following a multimillion pound redevelopment of our theatre. Bookings will open in November and will be allocated on a first come first serve basis.
