Respect, Support, Connect and Perform.
Globe Southwark Youth Theatre members are young people aged 10-25 who live, work or learn in Southwark.

Weekly practical workshops (every Saturday, term time only) take place in the state-of-the-art Sackler Studios. All activities are based on our four core values: Respect, Support, Connect and Perform. Term starts in October.

Over the course of a school year, our Youth Theatres focus on three main themes:
Term One (Autumn Term)
Read Not Dead – investigating Shakespeare’s contemporaries and also exploring the sources from which some of his plays are suspected to have been influenced.
Term Two (Spring Term)
Shakespeare in Performance - practically learning techniques needed to perform on the Globe stage and the techniques needed to portray the story and characters on stage.
Term Three (Summer Term)
New Writing - taking part in a project looking at playwriting from the past 50 years which has been inspired by Shakespeare’s stories and playhouse, and expanding on the techniques learnt in the previous two terms to explore these texts.
To become a member of a Globe Southwark Youth Theatre you should be:
- Aged 10-25
- Live, work or study in Southwark
- Be able to commit to a full year (three terms), beginning in October.
No previous experience is necessary but you will be asked to attend a workshop audition taking place on Saturday 14 September, 11.00-12.30pm..
Youth theatre costs £30 - £40 per term. Bursaries are available for students eligible for free school meals.
Please note: This group will not be meeting during the Summer holiday, but will resume for the Autumn term.
