Junior Youth Theatre 2 Workshop Group

JYT2 Workshop Group runs weekly sessions from June to July

This workshop group is an opportunity to discover more about acting, meet new people and try out new ways of creating theatre. Through attending the weekly sessions you will develop your confidence, your creativity and your acting and performance skills.

Workshops include warm-ups, drama games and fun exercises exploring different drama techniques. This project is about developing skills and does not lead towards a public performance.

Sessions will take place:
November – December 2018
Wednesdays 4pm – 5.30pm
at the Broadway Theatre Rehearsal Room in Catford

Junior Youth Theatre 2 Performance Groups

JYT2 Performance Groups run weekly sessions from January to April

We use games, warm-ups and drama exercises to enable everyone to take part. The sessions focus on team building, giving everyone a voice and a chance to take part creatively. This project leads to a final performance in a theatre. All participants will also work towards achieving an Arts Award qualification.

Each group is led by two experienced theatre workshop tutors and a team of volunteer assistants to rehearse and perform a production with full set, props and costumes in the Studio at the Broadway Theatre, Catford.

Sessions will take place:
January – April 2019
Wednesdays 4.30pm – 6.30pm (for years 8 and 9)
Saturdays 1.30 – 3pm (for years 7, 8 and 9)

Plus a full week of rehearsals in the Easter holidays
Performance on Saturday 13th April
