“You can be yourself at all times. LYT helps build up your confidence and makes you feel better about yourself.”

JYT1 Performance Group

Junior Youth Theatre 1 Performance Group runs weekly sessions from January to May.

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.

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 – May 2018

Tuesdays 4.15pm – 5.45pm OR Saturdays 11am – 12.30pm

at the Broadway Theatre Rehearsal Room in Catford

Plus a full week of rehearsals in summer half term
