Backstage Youth Theatre Workshops

For School Years 8 – 13
Interested in learning a bit more about what goes on behind the curtain?

“Taking part in the Trinity Backstage Youth Theatre has given me excellent experience across a wide variety of backstage and technical areas. I’ve had the opportunity to work on a number of shows alongside theatre professionals, and it is such a great community to be involved in. It has also helped me go on to study Stage Management at university. I would thoroughly recommend it to all!”
Benedict, Backstage Youth Theatre alumni

 

We are now offering spaces on our Backstage Workshops for the Summer term. These will be one off opportunities to join our Backstage Youth Theatre in learning a bit more about what goes on behind the scenes to put on our many productions throughout the year. 

These range from set, costume and props preparation sessions where you will get the chance to help make items used for our shows, as well as a sound effects, puppetry and stage management sessions.

We also have our theatre enhancement mornings which are a chance to see what a day in the life of a technician is like, helping with tech maintenance, organisation and is a great opportunity to learn a bit more about our space and what working in a theatre every day would be like.

Fees & Bursaries

Sessions cost £20 or £30 depending on the length of the session. We know times are currently financial tough for some families, and don’t want anybody who wants to come to be put off by the price. We have bursaries available via The Elliott Fund for those who need financial support.
