Arcola Youth Theatre is open to 13-15 year olds who live in and around Hackney.
Arcola Youth Theatre runs two projects over three terms.
The first project runs over two terms (September – March). The groups work to devise, develop and script new short plays based on the voices and ideas of the young people. They then undertake a rehearsal process that culminates in the staging of these plays in Studio 2 for friends and family.
The second project runs in the final term (April – July) and explores alternative theatre practice, equipping the participants with new skills to create and perform theatre. Previous terms have explored live art, site-specific performance, one-to-one performance and performance poetry. At the end of term groups perform an informal showing to friends and family.
Classes take place weekly on the following evenings:
- Tuesdays, 5.30-7.30pm
- Wednesdays, 5.30-7.30pm
Classes cost £65 per term (£40 for families receiving JSA).
All classes are currently full but register below to join the waiting list.
