Mondays 6:30pm – 8.00pm
School years 7 – 9

Taking on a whole range of different projects over the course of a year, Juniors is great place to dive in to Riding Lights Youth Theatre.

Autumn and Summer are traditionally skills based terms.  These are packed with drama games, and fun exercises to get you thinking theatrically. In the past, courses have covered:

  • storytelling
  • devising
  • physical theatre
  • improvisation
  • mask and character work

…to name but a few! Skills terms often end with a sharing of work for an invited audience.

Spring is when Juniors take the stage with their production term! The past few years have seen Juniors tackle a number of adventurous plays including turning Shakespeare on its head with a unique version of A Comedy of Errors, a take on John Wyndham’s The Chrysalids and adventuring in Narnia with The Voyage of the Dawn Treader.

Production terms give Juniors the chance to experience a creating a show all the way from page to stage, finishing off with a performance run at Friargate Theatre: our professional studio theatre and home to Riding Lights Theatre Company.

Whichever term you join us for, you can be sure that you’ll finish the term having had a great time with a whole range of new theatre skills under your belt!
