At Northern Stage we want young performers to have exactly the same opportunities to develop their talent as older artists. This is a perfect opportunity for youngsters to get acquainted with a variety of theatrical approaches, apply what they learn to their school studies and encourages creativity, discipline, teamwork, sharing, confidence and play. 

Cost: £60 per term.

Concessionary places are available. If you would like more information please contact Ali Ward-Timms at [email protected].

"I just want to say that the 12-15 year olds open stage performance was utterly entertaining and thought provoking. All of the young people were fantastic and it’s incredible that Danielle was able to create such a marvellous piece of theatre in such a short space of time. I feel so fortunate that you have given my daughters the opportunity to have fun, and make new friends while developing their confidence, creativity and learning new skills in such a magical and inclusive environment."
