In September 2016, The Union Theatre is excited to launch the Union Youth Theatre (UYT).
The Union Youth Theatre provides fun-filled classes in Ballet, Tap, Jazz, Singing and Drama every Sunday morning during term time. Our staff have trained at the country’s leading drama schools including Arts Educational, The Royal Academy of Music and the The Central School of Speech and Drama and have worked extensively across the globe and in London’s West End.
Each year, the students will work towards staging a musical and will perform this at the newly built Union Theatre.
Additionally, members will be offered the chance to take part in West End Masterclasses as well as theatre trips and other exciting opportunities.
Having worked at the Union and extensively as a child performer, I'm honoured to lend my name to this new youth theatre project. There's nothing greater and more helpful for children than learning and performing together in a group ... it prepares them for social situations as adults and keeps their inquisitive nature alive. If I was 9yrs old again, I'd be there in a shot!
