Young REP at The Core

Young REP at The Core

Weekly young actors course, with professionals from Birmingham REP

The Satellite Young REP is a fantastic opportunity for young people (aged 11-16) to build their confidence and creativity whilst working with a professional theatre Director from the Birmingham REP. Once a week, during term time you will meet with a Drama Practitioner afterschool, build an ensemble and create performance.

During Summer 2023 there will be an opportunity to perform at the REP at a Satellite Youth Theatre Festival alongside schools, theatre groups and companies from across the West Midlands. It's a brilliant experience to be amongst other performers after having the opportunity for a professional technical rehearsal.

There will also be an opportunity during the year to perform at The Core. Places are limited to 30 on these courses book now for this opportunity to develop wider drama skills and make meaningful, interesting and entertaining theatre!

This course is for ages 11-16 (Secondary school age) and will be hosted at The Core with Theatre Practitioners from the Rep Theatre.  Participants can start any time up to half term and the course fee would be adjusted to take account of the missed weeks.

Parents/Guardian:  A number of bursary places are available to young people who live in Solihull and are in receipt of Free School Meals.  If the young person would like to attend, please provide proof of FSM, when completing the forms by supplying a copy of the school letter or scanning it to us.
