A week-long introductory drama course for young people aged 11 – 14 years old. Participants will explore drama exercises and games whilst working together to develop a presentation on the final day.

Young people will devise their own piece of theatre which they will present to a group of friends and family in one of RADAs theatres on the final day of the course. Team work, communication skills and confidence building will all be explored as the group creates an interesting and exciting presentation. Participants do not need any drama experience.

Future dates for the Young Theatre Makers course will appear on this page.

In Easter we will be partnering with the Bengali Community Centre in Camden for our Young Theatre Makers course.
