Welcome to the Young People’s Theatre

We are not for profit youth theatre for 11- 17 year olds based at the People’s Theatre Arts Group in Heaton, Newcastle upon Tyne. We run regular term time drama workshops every Thursday evening 6pm – 8pm and we perform around 3-4 shows per year.

We are an open, friendly and free group!

We have no regular fees nor do we have an audition policy. We believe youth theatre can develop confidence as well as theatrical skills, and is a great way to meet new people from across our region.

Here are some of the things our young people have said about us –

“The people are great, the workshops are useful and the shows are fantastic!” (Jamie 16 )

“It’s really helped with my confidence and acting skills. It is a great place to make new friends.” (Julia 11)

“I’ve been part of the Young People’s Theatre for a bout 5 years, I honestly don’t know where I’d be without it! It’s taught me all sorts from how to socialise with everyone to how to do an audition!” (Anna R 16)

” Everyone is fun to be around and it’s a great club” (Maeve 12)

“The Young People’s Theatre has given me great experiences in drama, and lots of confidence to do more plays” (Patrick 13)
