Youth Theatre

“Being a member of the Berry Youth Theatre allows me to explore and develop different theatre skills in an environment where I know I will not be judged. I have made strong bonds with other BYT members, further increasing my friendship circle. BYT allows me to develop my interest and passion for theatre by producing professional performances, organising trips to other productions and weekly workshops.- Youth Theatre Member

The Berry Youth Theatre is open to all young people aged 8-21 years, giving each the opportunity to take part in safe, empowering and challenging theatre regardless of background or ability.

Weekly workshops take place at The Berry Theatre with professional directors and theatre practitioners. We place a great emphasis on the importance of the ensemble and aim to develop a diverse range of drama skills whilst encouraging self-expression, teamwork and confidence. 

All members of The Berry Youth Theatre are given performance opportunities throughout the year. As well as our spring production at The Berry Theatre we like to end each term with a sharing of devised work and members will be first to know of other opportunities that arise at the Berry and also our sister venue The Point, in Eastleigh.

When you join The Berry Youth Theatre your involvement goes far beyond the weekly workshop sessions as we invest in all areas of your arts participation.

You will:

  • Receive regular emails about upcoming show offers at The Point and The Berry Theatre and the chance to join your friends on trips to see shows.
  • The opportunity to complete a bronze or silver Arts Award.
  • Support, mentoring and career advice as well as consideration for work experience placements at the theatre.
