Backstage Youth Theatre Workshops
For members of Trinity’s Backstage Youth Theatre
Take part, behind the scenes!
“I really enjoy Trinity Backstage Youth Theatre. It’s taught me so much and made me do things I never thought I’d be able to do.”
Charley, Backstage Youth Theatre member 2021-22
This term we have a mix of one of workshops with practitioners and sessions helping to make some of the cosutmes, sets and props for our summer productions. We are kicking off with an introduction session which will be a chance to have a look around the theatre and backstage, meet some of our practitioner team, meet each other and we will do a bit of a production meeting to get everyone up to speed on all of the shows we have coming up over the summer and the sort of things everyone will be doing. Even if you were with us last year and know the space well this is a really important opportunity to meet our new members and check out our summer programme.
As part of the Backstage Youth Theatre you are encouraged to attend workshops covering a wide range of different areas of Backstage Theatre even if you have a particular area of interest. As a collaborative industry, it is really important to learn about every deparment and how they all work together to put shows on. In order to help out on our shows throughout the year, we ask that you attend an appropriate amount of workshops and show dedication across the board. When we get to shows, your attendance throughout the year at workshops will be taken into consideration when allocating you a role on a show, as well as your personal preferences so please take this in mind when signing up to each workshop.
This year we are asking you all to sign up for each workshop so that we know who to expect, with exams and mocks around this time I know some people’s availability may be more sporadic so it’s really helpful for us to be able to have an idea of numbers.
These will all be held at Trinity Theatre.
Keeping Everyone Safe
All of our groups are led by experienced, DBS-checked professional youth theatre leaders.
If you have any concerns during the term, please speak to our Designated Safeguarding Lead, Jason Lower. He can be contacted confidentially via email or on 07587 537308.
Fees & Bursaries
For members of the Backstage Youth Theatre these workshops are included within their membership for the year.
Once we know how many extra spaces are available, we will offer this out to our waiting list who can all attend for £25. No one should be unable to take part because of financial constraints. Bursaries from The Elliott Fund are available for those on low incomes. Please contact us for more information.
If you have any questions send Rachel an email.
