About Cast Youth Theatre

Cast Youth Theatre is for Young people ages 3 – 18. Cast Youth Theatre is an exciting, high energy group combining fun drama activities and games, singing, dancing and imagination. 

Cast Youth Theatre is for everyone; whether you are a complete beginner, want to build on your existing acting experience, or simply get to know other young people interested in theatre.

It's all about increasing confidence, boosting self-esteem and nurturing imagination through fun filled, games and role-play. Your child or Young Person doesn't have to be a confident chatterbox or experienced in performing to take part. We welcome everyone to join in the fun.
Each term participants will create short pieces of drama to share with their families while developing their confidence and skills in performance. Every other year all Cast Youth Theatre groups work together to create a large-scale performance on the Main stage at Cast.
