Young People

Theatre Makers

Mondays during term time
A new theatre company for young adults to work with arts professionals and explore the ingredients that create exceptional theatre.

This free opportunity is for young people who face financial barriers.

Derby Theatre is a Learning Theatre. This means that our doors are open for everyone to learn, including the next generation of actors and theatre makers.

We’re not just looking for ability, but for people interested in developing their skills and working as an ensemble to bring ideas to life through play and experimentation.

Fair access to working in the arts remains one of the most urgent issues facing the sector today, with those from lower socio-economic backgrounds still vastly underrepresented.

Derby Theatre wants to make a difference in this area, so that the art we make is not just outstanding, but relevant to the widest possible audiences.
