St Helens Youth Theatre

We’ve teamed up with Burnley Youth to form a brand new St Helens Youth Theatre for young people in St Helens.

Come along, meet new friends, build your confidence and learn skills in stage craft, characterisation and gain experience in performing on stage.

Our workshops are open access, meaning that anyone who is interested in drama can attend.

The group are about to start work an exciting performance celebrating 150 years of St Helens.  The young people will create a performance which charts the history of St Helens over the past 150 years highlighting key milestones in the town’s history and future ambitions.  The performance will be a creative piece of theatre which will use the young people’s findings from the heritage work they will carry out including: museum visits, archive exploration and oral histories from local people.

Admission to the workshops costs £5.00/£3 per session and are held at the times listed below:

Ages 6-11 – Thursday 6pm – 7pm
Ages 11 – 17 – Thursday 7.00pm – 8.30pm
