The Playhouse's First Call Youth Theatre opens next week!
First Call Youth Theatre at The Playhouse will start their new Autumn Programme.
Every Tuesday from 7 to 9pm this exciting free twenty week course offers young people the first step to professional theatre.
First Call is open to anyone aged between 16 and 25 years who are keen to use practical learning in acting and performance, working towards a theatre production.
Members of the group will learn to improve existing theatre skills and develop new ones working within a fun and respectful learning environment.
