Yew Tree for me is an escape from reality where my brain can run free and I can be who I truly am. Having Yew Tree allows me to have a creative outlet and learn more about myself and the person I am. The energy and the environment is also one of my favourite things as I always feel safe, never judged like at school or at home, a place where everyone is allowed to forget about life for 2 hours and be who they want to be. The feeling when you come off stage is also something you can’t get anywhere else it makes me feel alive.
The ambition of Yew Tree Youth Theatre is to build the confidence and self-esteem of everyone we work with. We welcome all young people to YTYT regardless of ability or experience. Performances are only a small element of our Youth Theatre activity.
