Young People


Since 2008, Rose Youth Theatre has earned itself a strong reputation. Students meet every week to learn about acting and theatre.


Rose Youth Theatre Under 11s 

For ages 5-10, Cost: £120 per term. 

Our popular Rose Youth Theatre programme is one of the largest of its kind in the country. The Under 11s course is great fun and enjoys fabulous feedback from students and parents alike. The course explores self-confidence, vocal, literacy and team skills. Practitioners work closely with local schools and connect their work to the curriculum to give our youngest students the best advantage.

At the end of the term, the children will have the opportunity to share their work with friends and family.

Classes are held every day of the week, either at the Rose Theatre or local venues such as Park Hill School in Kingston and Westbury House School in New Malden.

Rose Young Company

For ages 11-18. Cost: £180 per term. Audition required.

This is our performance-based course. It demands huge commitment and full attendance, but the rewards are worth it. Our junior students (11-14) learn about theatre through text, technique and improvisation, whilst our seniors (14-18) work in ensembles on emotional access and maturity, exploring art and performance in an entirely new and exciting way.

Rose Young Company students rehearse hard and perform to the public each term, working on classics, adaptations, new writing and screen plays. Within small ensembles, our actors learn an extraordinary level of discipline to compliment professional process and technique.

As Rose Young Company’s focus is heavily on performance, attendance is mandatory on a term-by-term basis, this is as much a commitment for parents and siblings as it is for students!

The Rose Youth Theatre Academy (RYTA)

For ages 11-18. Cost £120 per term. 

Our new course is designed to introduce students to a whole range of acting skills and professional training techniques. We’ve taken the best elements of our Rose Acting Workshops and developed these to offer a new varied and structured syllabus, designed to develop skills, improve confidence and compliment studies at school.  The classes are great fun, well structured, and require discipline, attendance and punctuality.

This is an open-access course, organised by school year, and there’s no audition, but we do ask that you commit to attending classes regularly – you’ll only get the most from the course if you come along.  At the end of every term you’ll have to chance to receive a certificate and there will also be a performance for invited friends and family.
