We believe involvement in drama and the theatre fundamentally improve confidence and self-awareness in a way that other activities cannot. Consequently, it has a very positive effect on social skills and general demeanour in everyday life.
We know that not everyone is a natural singer, dancer or performer. But we are of the firm belief that every single person has their own skills to offer. We also believe that the Wincanton Youth Theatre provides those involved with the opportunity to showcase and improve those skills.
We aim to enthuse and inspire by using different activities, workshops, improvisations and devised theatre during our regular weekly rehearsals. Our aim is to produce several shows each year, including musicals, variety, and more serious drama. In addition to these productions, we want to further educate our youth by providing singing workshops, writing workshops, trips to theatres, talks and public performances.
Wincanton Youth Theatre is aimed at children and young adults aged between 10 and 18, but we do have a few even younger. If you are interested in joining, please contact us on 07843 047277 or click the contact page to email us. We’d love to hear from you.
Our regular rehearsals are Sunday afternoons (2pm until 6pm) at King Arthur’s Community School, Wincanton. Pop in for a chat and to see what we do.
