JYT1 Performance Group

Junior Youth Theatre 1 Performance Group runs weekly sessions usually 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 2017 

at the Broadway Theatre Rehearsal Room in Catford

Tuesday 4.15pm – 5.45pm or Saturday 11am – 12.30pm
