Youth Drama Academy

Utopia Theatre is establishing an African Theatre Youth Academy to run regular performing arts classes and workshops to compliment the skills of young people 9-19 years with African oral storytelling and performance techniques to include acting, music, dance, learning a musical instrument, public speaking and film making etc.

What to expect: Workshops, Masterclasses, and Mentoring in a relaxed environment. A chance to participate in a performance (on stage or as part of the crew) every year
Workshops run on Thursdays.

Juniors: (9-13 years) 6-7 pm

In the final week of each month, there will be an opportunity to work with an industry expert in specific theatre skills.

Travel expenses will be covered for those who need them.


Who? (Young people aged 9-19 of African and African Caribbean Heritage)
No acting or drama experience is necessary, just an enthusiasm to take part.
