Classes are led by working professionals from the performing arts industry. We work closely with specialists in music, dance and drama to bring the best possible opportunities to the EAYT participants.

The EAYT team continue to cater for the needs of each individual participant, building their skills and confidence and ensuring that while we maintain a professional ethos, classes are fun, accessible and develop life transferrable skills.

Junior (8-11yrs) Wednesdays from 4.30pm-6.30pm 
Senior (12-18yrs) Wednesdays from 7pm-9pm 

In a typical session, students will explore general theatre technique, stage craft and improvisation, whilst developing the three core disciplines of Voice, Acting and Dance creating friendships for life along the journey.

Productions

Both age groups work towards full scale theatre productions as well as offering showcases of their work throughout the year. Previous productions include Hairspray, The Wizard of Oz, Oliver, Made in Dagenham, High School Musical and Les Miserables to name a few.

It is hoped that we can present a festive showcase on 5 & 6 November 2021. Arrangements and plans for this will be confirmed as soon as Government Covid regulations allow.

We have provisionally scheduled the first full scale production next year to take place from Friday 29 – Saturday 30 April 2022 which will be confirmed in alignment with current Government Guidance and we will work with the EAYT young people to choose the production.
