The Kings Theatre, Southsea, Portsmouth

Kings Youth Theatre

The Kings Youth Theatre seeks to give all young people from the ages of 7 – 17 years old the opportunity to not only explore, participate and engage in all the aspects of making theatre; to learn what it takes to devise, create and produce professional theatrical productions, but also express themselves, build confidence and develop their imagination in a safe and creative environment.

Under the direction of Joanna Bennington, fun-packed Saturday classes (term-time only) are specifically tailored to each age group, exploring the performing arts through games, character improvisation, script work and performance.  As well as weekly classes, we aim to offer performance opportunities throughout the year in a number of venues around Portsmouth including on stage here at the Kings Theatre!

Cost per child per term is £100 - working on a three term a year basis, following the school calendar.

Class Times:

Juniors (7-12years): 10am - 12pm
Seniors (12-17years): 1pm - 3pm
