Little Theatre Youth Companies
Kingfishers is a youth theatre group for children aged 9 to 13. We run 10 week termly sessions, meeting 5pm till 6.15pm Tuesday evenings. We look at drama and acting techniques, as well as dance, song and stage craft – often thinking about how our work would look on stage and what we would need to do to achieve that! A lovely introduction to a working theatre, with performance sharing to family and friends at the end of the term.
Tadpoles is our older youth theatre group, suitable for children aged 13/14 and above. A step up in theatre and drama skills: working with scripts, devising, and the chance to perform in our big annual show on the Little Theatre Stage. The Tadpoles perform a big scripted piece in the theatre once a year for a four night run, and are expected to work hard on co-creation, ideas on stage craft, props, staging, and gain an understanding on what it takes to perform live on a working stage. Tadpoles are expected to have a lot of commitment if in these shows – great practice for a future in drama and theatre whether through college, university or work.
The Little Theatre Youth Companies are run by working actor and drama practitioner, Becky Dobson. She graduated from Exeter University with a degree in drama in 2012, and has since worked as an A-level drama teacher, a theatre maker, writer, professional actress and director.
