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 5-11. Cost: £110 per term. 

Our programme for younger children is great fun and always enjoys fabulous feedback from students and parents alike. We explore self-confidence, vocal, literacy and team skills. We work closely with local schools and connect our work to the curriculum to give our youngest students the best advantage.

Meeting week in small classes, students work in various spaces across the Rose and receive a lot of close tuition to develop their creative abilities. There are performance opportunities, and students regularly show work to friends and family.

Rose Young Company

For ages 11-18. Cost: £160 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!

In the autumn 2016 term, fifty students from Rose Young Company formed the cast of The Wind in the Willows, our major Christmas production. In our regular course, the junior and lower senior groups will work on The Jungle Book, and our upper senior groups will work on a new play called Lay Your Sleeping Head.

Rose Acting Workshops 

For ages 11-18. Cost £110 per term. 

Our Acting Workshop classes focus on text and process to develop self-confidence, listening and teamwork, voice and imaginative skills. Students will learn professional technique and find each week both a new challenge and great fun.

There is a good mix of current and new Rose Youth Theatre members, this course has no public performance, offering a slightly more relaxed approach than the Young Company.

RAW is a great alternative for young people juggling a lot of different commitments. The skills are high-level and varied, the classes are great fun, and we think the Workshops will have a big impact on all areas of your life.

Rose Dance Workshops

For ages 11-18. Cost: £80 per term or £40 per term for RYT members
A great introduction to dance for young actors and performers. Get fit, make friends and learn styles and techniques to inform your theatre work.
