Do you want to grow your creativity with other young theatre makers?

  • Learn new theatre skills

Then Riding Lights Youth Theatre is just what you’re looking for.

Based at Friargate Theatre, in central York, we run courses for young actors aged 11-18. Taking place throughout school term times, sessions are welcoming, friendly and open to people of all abilities. We offer a free trial session for anyone interested in joining us. To take up this offer simply give us a call on 01904 655317.

For Spring 2021, Junior and Senior Youth Theatres are online. Acting Up will have some informal online socials through the term to keep connected. We are reviewing when we can open the building for Youth Theatre regularly.
