Not sure what the Globe’s Youth Theatre is all about? Book a place on one of our free taster sessions where you’ll get a chance to see if it’s for you!

Our Youth Theatre is a weekly training programme for young performers hungry to engage with acting and performance. Led on-site at Shakespeare’s Globe by experienced, professional actors and directors, members of the Youth Theatre will get the unique chance to immerse themselves in the Globe’s radical and experimental approach to the work of Shakespeare.

These free taster sessions give you the opportunity to find out first hand how fun and exciting our Youth Theatre is before applying to audition for our next intake in January 2022. These sessions are for young people aged 11 to 13 but we have other sessions available for 14 to 16 year-olds and 17 to 19 year-olds.

Please note, attending a taster session does not guarantee you a place in our Youth Theatre. If you would like to join the Globe’s Youth Theatre, you will need to apply for a place at one of our audition workshops.
