Nurturing Talent

Support the next, best British talent

Look what happened to our previous members….

Kevin Whately, Jack Shepherd, Tom Goodman Hill, Andrea Riseborough, Neil Tennant, Ross Noble – to name but a few began their careers at The People’s Theatre! We are justly proud of our budding actors.

Many come through our Young People’s Theatre – a free, not for profit youth theatre for up to fifty children aged between 11- 17 years. The Young People’s Theatre runs drama workshops and performs up to 4 shows per year. Developing confidence and theatrical skills, it’s is a great way for young people to socialise with different groups across the region, nationally and internationally. 

Our Young People’s Theatre will particularly benefit from the completion of our New Studio Theatre – a venue purpose built to try out new skills in a smaller performance space.
