Coming up

Lakeside Youth Theatre


Come and give it a go! Free trial offered, just drop into the theatre café before your workshop and meet the team.

Lakeside Theatre opens its doors every Saturday morning during term time for our Youth Theatre. It is the place to be yourself, discover your ambitions and make something truly amazing happen. The weekly workshops are run by a team of professional theatre practitioners and drama students from the University of Essex.

Each week you will learn a variety of theatre skills and techniques, build self-confidence, meet new friends and have plenty of fun in a creative environment (not to mention our professional, fully equipped theatre).

You’ll explore and make theatre in one of our workshop groups and then come together to hang out and swap ideas. At the end of each term you’ll get the opportunity to take to our stage to showcase all you’ve discovered.

No acting experience is necessary, just enthusiasm, curiosity and commitment.
