"Being a part of the youth theatre has been an amazing experience, I've made new friends, grown loads in confidence and been a part of a project I will remember forever" Alistair
Harrogate Youth Theatre (HYT) is a great opportunity to make friends, build confidence, work with theatre professionals and above all have brilliant fun.
HYT run term-time weekly drama sessions for ages 3-18. Please click the boxes at the bottom of the page to find out more information about the classes suitable for your young person.
Each term HYT members get to try out different theatre skills and explore their own creativity. Together groups work on improvisation and performance skills. Each group, except the very youngest, get to perform to an audience at least once per year.
There are also holiday projects every year that HYT members can join in.
HYT sessions take place in Hive, which is on Oxford Street in Harrogate, just between the Leeds Building Society and Duttons for Buttons. Hive has video entry which provides security for staff and participants working upstairs. It is also used for the safe entry of late-comers. Under 11s meet their leader and assistant at the theatre and walk over to Hive as a group. The over 11s use the video entry for access.
PLEASE NOTE: Access to Hive is by stairs only, we do not have a lift.
We offer a free taster session to those who would like to try the workshops out before signing up for a full term. To have a go, please agree to the behaviour policy, fill in a registration form and send this to us enquiring about a taster session. Please send the completed form to us at firstname.lastname@example.org or send it to Harrogate Theatre, Oxford Street, Harrogate, HG1 1QF - we will then get back to you about a suitable date for a taster session.
