For Young People

    Start Your Journey With Us

    Throughout the year, we are normally bursting with opportunities for young people from ages 0 – 25. Many of our activities are on pause due to the coronavirus pandemic and the temporary closure of Tobacco Factory Theatres. But we are delighted to have just launched a half term of Young Theatre Makers Online!

    Young Theatre Makers, our youth theatre for 7-10, 11-13 and 14- 19 year olds, gives young people a chance to work in a professional theatre environment, learn new skills and develop as a theatre maker.

    If you prefer short bursts of activity, our Holiday Activities for 5+ years are perfect for you. Whether it’s a Half Term Session, our renowned Summer School, or an exciting production-related Play in a Day, we want to give you the chance to improve your skills, make new friends and have an experience you’ll never forget!

    Children under 5? Come along to one of the monthly Dragonbird interactive performances for babies and toddlers.

    Or, if you’re aged 18-25, embark on a 2 year-long training programme with us to become a Producer. Our schemes for Young Producers (Year 1) and Emerging Producers (Year 2) offer the opportunity to share your love and knowledge of theatre, network with industry professionals, programme new work, and curate discussions, events and opportunities for young people from across Bristol.
