Mondays: 6pm – 8pm
School Years: 10 – 13

Taking on a variety of different projects over the course of a year, Seniors is a great way to stretch your skills and become a part of Riding Lights Youth Theatre.

Spring and Summer are traditionally skills based terms, giving you a chance to really develop your skills. In the past, courses have covered:

  • improvisation
  • comedy
  • physical theatre
  • working with a text
  • street theatre

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

Autumn is when Seniors take the stage with their production term! The past few years have seen Seniors tackling Feathers in the Snow, Murder by Poe, take on Shakespeare with performances on the Wagon Stage at The Rose Theatre, and explore the effects of climate change with Rumours of Polar Bears, their 2019 Production. With all the uncertainty in the world at the moment, we’re making the Seniors’ Autumn term an online skills term, so that we have the best chance to create something brilliant in our performance term (now Spring 2021).

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!

Spring 2021

Performance date: March 26th 7pm

‘Believe me, my young friend, there is absolutely nothing half so much worth doing as simply messing about in boats. In them or out of them, it doesn’t matter. Whether you get away or you don’t, whether you arrive at your destination or whether you never get anywhere at all, you’re always busy.’

This term we will be diving deep into the Wild Wood with Mole, Rat, Toad, Badger and a host of other animal friends. Riding Lights Junior and Senior Youth Theatre will join forces to perform this well-known play – online. With vibrant characters, a widely-loved plot and an exciting new format, this production promises to be one to remember.

Rehearsal Dates: Mondays 11th Jan – 22nd March (exc.15th Feb) 6-8pm

Performance: 26th March 7pm.

Unfortunately the course is now full and we cannot take more applications.

PLEASE NOTE the change of evening and start time of 6pm.
