Yew Tree Youth Theatre

The overriding aim of all Yew Tree work is to build confidence and self esteem – the youth theatre is at the heart of that aim. We welcome all young people to YTYT regardless of ability or previous experience. The public performances we stage are only a small element of our Youth Theatre activity. This gives everyone the chance to learn skills and develop at their own pace. Established for over ten years the youth theatre has given hundreds of young people the chance to enjoy drama - and with over 220 young people attending one of our ten sessions every week  YTYT is more popular than ever.Please contact us for more information 

Yew Tree Youth Theatre is a Children's University Learning Destination

All youth theatre sessions are £3.50 and run during term time, for specific dates check the latest news section.
