Junior Youth Theatre 2 Performance Group runs 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 2018

Wednesdays 4.30pm – 6.30pm

at the Broadway Theatre Rehearsal Room in Catford

Plus a full week of rehearsals in the Easter holidays

Performance on Saturday 7th April
