For 15 – 21s

“This is an excellent opportunity for the children to express themselves. LYT has given the children confidence and taught them to appreciate current issues through drama. This is needed in our community.”

Lewisham Youth Theatre’s Senior Youth Theatre is for young people between 14 and 21 who live or learn in Lewisham and attend no other after school drama.

We do not audition. It is free.

All you need is a real interest in taking part and a willingness to work with others.

Weekly workshops build towards a final performance in a professional theatre setting, and help to build acting skills, vocal range, stage presence, creativity and confidence. You will be expected to take part in the full project.  Workshops and rehearsals are built on drama games, script work, improvisation and characterisation.
