Tuesdays: 7:00pm – 9.00pm
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 MacbethThe Jungle Book, take on a musical classic with Oh, What a Lovely War!   and explore the effects of climate change with their version of Pipe Dreams – a show originally created as a Riding Lights National Tour.

Production terms give Seniors the chance to experience a production 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. Our Senior Youth Theatre also go beyond working at Friargate Theatre, often working on special projects with professional actors, street theatre for the Tour de France, and working on rehearsed play readings for Holocaust Memorial Day.

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!

Something is afoot this autumn, and August Dupin is the woman to solve it. Join Seniors as they rehearse and perform an adaptation of Edgar Allen Poe’s celebrated Dupin Mysteries.
