Would you like to be in a show? In a show onstage and under the lights with sound? In a show, onstage in a theatre? Then this summer term at the Westy is just what you are looking for.  This term, after 12 weeks of rehearsal, the fruits of your labour results in a show that you can invite all of your family and friends to watch. If this sounds like something that would interest you then sign up, come and try it out for a week and see if it is a good fit! 

Youth Theatre is a space to build our confidence and resilience! West End Centre is and always has been, a safe environment in which to test things out, examine situations and strengthen your sense of identity. Role play techniques and team building games achieve this better than any other activity. Bekki has a whole load of games, drama exercises and activities designed to help establish trust, unlock creativity, build confidence and have fun doing so!

For ages 8 - 12 years.

Tutor: Bekki Budd
