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, Stonehenge School, Amesbury and St Andrew's Hall, Tidworth. 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.


Group 3 will create a performance to be performed in the Rehearsal Room in the Autumn term 2019.

The Young Company will be performing in Easter 2020.

Group 2 – Young Company will be performing on our main stage this August. You can book tickets to see The Wizard of Oz here.

Please note that extra rehearsals will be added throughout the term when young people are taking part in productions, these dates will be given to cast members in the proceeding term.
