SOUTHWARK YOUTH THEATRE

Respect, Support, Connect and Perform.

Please note the application deadline for the 2013 Youth Theatre has now expired and applications will no longer be accepted.

Globe Southwark Youth Theatre members are young people aged 10-18 who live or learn in Southwark.  Under the expert guidance of Globe Education Practitioners they work on exciting projects to develop their self-esteem, teamwork and performance skills which deepen their understanding of themselves, each other and the wider Southwark Community.

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.
