Cast Youth Theatre: Bright Lights

Our singing and drama group for children and young people with additional needs and learning disabilities.


Bright Lights is a completely FREE creative performing arts group for young people with additional needs aged 11 to 26 years. 
Each week young people can have fun, make friends and learn new skills in drama, singing, storytelling in a supported and friendly environment.
Parents are welcome to stay, but you don't have to. Sessions are planned with the individual needs of young people in mind and delivered in a way which supports each group member’s development and plays to their strengths. 
This fun and friendly group is ideal for those looking to try something creative.
Bright Lights gives young people with additional needs the confidence they need to make new friends, learn new things and enjoy being creative.

Key Details

Sessions are Wednesday Evenings, 5.30pm- 6.30pm during term time.

Young People are welcome to attend alone or with a parent/ carer for one-to-one-support.

Cast Youth Theatre

All children are also welcome to attend our Youth Theatre classes Spotlights (ages 11 to 14) or Flood Lights (ages 14 to 18).

Cast provides inclusive play and learning opportunities for all children. Staff and children are supported so that we can welcome diversity. 


All children are included and welcome in all of the activities at Cast. We will provide an individualised approach and/or additional support where possible and practical that may involve some of the following strategies:


- Adjustment of the environment, equipment and materials as required
- Use of visual strategies such as Social Stories, Makaton, Sand timers
- Preparations for changes in routines
- Simple language
- Identification and support of a child’s preferred play style


If you think your child has special educational needs prior to attending Cast, you can phone to talk our participation team 01302 303 959 or email Kirsty Airlie
