Theatre Workshop

Theatre Workshop is for young people who have a passion for theatre and want to develop their drama skills and experience in a workshop situation. Our classes offer the chance to concentrate on the important drama skills of improvisation, storytelling techniques and working with texts in a friendly and supportive environment. These classes are open to all students of secondary school age.

You will work in small groups (of no more than 15 students) with others of a similar age, gaining skills, experience and confidence that will be hugely valuable, whatever you want to do in life. There is no audition for Theatre Workshop, places are allocated on a first come, first served basis with entry on to the workshop in September, January and April.

Theatre Workshop groups meet for two and a half hours on Saturdays (in Pembrokeshire) or Sundays (in Cardiff) from either 10am to 12.30pm or 1.15pm to 3.45pm.

In Cardiff, we are pleased to be able to offer Theatre Workshop classes through the medium of Welsh. Please contact us for more information.
