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 six 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 18.
This year we are producing the classic musical Joseph and the Technicolour Dreamcoat!
