For Children and Young People
We have lots of opportunities for children and young people to get involved. Why not develop your performance and confidence skills, learn about technical theatre backstage, take part in a holiday workshop, experiment with writing for the stage or join our Youth Theatre? We still have opportunties to get involved in this Summer's holiday workshops so why not join us and work on a mini performance to be performed at the end of the summer school.
At Derby Theatre we offer learning and educational opportunities for everyone, whatever their age or background. Maybe you want to join our Ensemble Company, get Technical advice or training, hire one of the costumes from our fantastic wardrobe or perhaps you just fancy a tour of the theatre. As a Learning Theatre, our doors are always open.
