Youth Theatre

Valley Arts Weekly Youth Theatre

Our super fun and engaging youth theatre is open to anyone aged 7 – 13 (school year groups 3 – 8).  Using a variety of games and activities we explore areas of drama including devising, improvisation, scriptwriting etc as well as working on their acting skills.  This all helps to build the participants’ confidence, teamwork and creativity, both on stage and off!



Weekly sessions take place from 5.45pm – 7.15pm on Wednesday evenings during term time, at The Baptist Hall in Chew Magna.

The first session is free to give your child a taste of what the sessions will be like and to meet the Youth Theatre leaders. After this, the cost is £10 per session, with the whole term (or any remaining sessions in the term) payable in advance.  We will send details of payment once you have registered on the attached form found here
