Stage 65

Stage 65 Youth Theatre

Stage 65, our Youth Theatre, offers weekly workshops, end of term performances, productions on our stages and a range of discounts to anyone aged 4-25 years.  These workshops are a fantastic opportunity if you want a career in theatre, or even if you would just like to meet new friends and take part in the arts.

Workshops take place at Salisbury Playhouse, Exeter House School and Wellington Academy, Tidworth (11-18 years old).  Fees are outlined on our registration forms (reduced membership rates and bursaries are also available).

Our Youth Theatre is open to anybody with a passion for theatre and our workshops are fully inclusive. In 2017 South Wilts Mencap awarded our organisation the Betty Williams Award for going the extra mile for people with learning disabilities.

South Wilts Mencap has said: The playhouse offers inclusion for disabled people enabling them to take part in main stage and Salberg productions, there are a number of disabled people in the Youth Theatre who have the same opportunities at the Playhouse as everyone else. The inclusion and support the playhouse offers is exceptional.

If you would like to join our youth theatre or know someone who might, contact the Take Part department at takepart@wiltshirecreative.co.uk or complete the online registration form below.
