The Roses Youth Theatre is a great way to get involved with one of Gloucestershire’s most active theatres. Each week we deliver 5 workshops for children and young people aged 5 – 21, developing skills in acting, improvisation, script work and acting for stage and screen.
Alongside our team all Youth Theatre members develop confidence through drama, voice coaching and movement. The Roses hosts the youth theatre’s main performance each year, affording members the opportunity to experience first-hand the inner workings of a professionally run venue.
We also offer nationally recognised Arts Award qualifications and are regular participants in the National Theatre’s Connections festival, Strike A Light Theatre Festival and the Edinburgh Fringe.
