Stafford Gatehouse Youth Theatre [SGYT] is a unique, fun, imaginative and successful youth theatre, which has been established for over 25 years. During this time it has seen thousands of 7 to 18 year olds participate in, and benefit from, weekly workshops in drama, aiding the children's performance skills as well as increase their confidence and self expression.
The youth theatre is organised into eight age groups, led by trained tutors who meet weekly during school term times at Stafford Gatehouse Theatre. SGYT aims to challenge young people to develop confidence, creativity and consideration for others, in the context of a professional theatre. The SGYT is very lucky to be based in a professional theatre and an important aspect of its work is the teaching and learning of theatre skills, aiming for professional standards.
Every summer we produce a professional musical by young performers between the ages of 7 and 21.
This year we are producing The Addams Family; A New Musical.
For your chance to shine and be part of this fun show simply join us for auditions on Sunday 7th April 2019. To audition you must be between 7 and 21 years old, and be available for all rehearsals and performances from Monday 29th July until Saturday 17th August 2019. Please bring a passport sized photograph with you to the audition. Note that participation in Summer School is subject to a fee – this is outlined in the audition pack.
Experience isn't necessary; just lots of enthusiasm and a love for performing. Summer School is a fantastic opportunity to develop acting, dancing and singing skills, whilst building confidence and making friends.
