Calling young actors; Youth theatre.

IT IS a brilliant place to learn new skills, meet new friends, socialise and have fun.

That's the verdict on the Lawrence Batley Theatre's Youth Theatre by one of its current members and as a new term gets underway the company is on the lookout for budding young actors wanting to get involved.

The Youth Theatre is a weekly drama workshop that not only develops young people's drama skills but helps build their confidence. It's also lots of fun.

There are classes for six to 25-year-olds and young people are placed in classes with those of a similar age.

There are two types of classes offering opportunities for people with different skill levels to get involved.

Creative skills classes are designed for those who fancy having a go and seeing what it's all about.

There's no audition - you just get involved. If you are new to drama, this is the one for you. It's the perfect introduction to the LBT's youth theatre.

Theatre skills classes are more specialised and so those wanting to be involved are asked to audition first.

If you've done a lot of drama before and are serious about developing as a performer then this is the group for you.

Youth Theatre members also get to see LBT shows, take part in special one off workshops/projects. There's also the chance to perform in the LBT's main stage production every two years.

If you are interested, call youth theatre director Naomi Sumner on 01484 484450 or email her at

Youth Theatre membership costs PS78 / PS52 for Kirklees passport holders for the 13 week term. There are also a limited number of bursary placements available.
