Petersfield Youth Theatre is a creative place – a place to find inspiration and to develop a limitless imagination. We’ve been running for 31 years, and we work hard to create a nurturing, educational and fun environment for young people who are interested in theatre, whether their desire is to build confidence and make friends, or to ultimately work in professional theatre. Membership is open to those aged 5 to 23.
The company is run by a small group of enthusiastic staff and volunteers, who employ theatre and education practitioners to direct productions and lead our activities. Everyone involved is passionate about offering the great experience, and the creative teams are all highly experienced professionals.
PYT members can take part in holiday activities, workshops and productions throughout the year. There’s usually an Easter Project, a Summer School, workshops throughout the term, a huge autumn production and a Christmas show.
You pay an annual membership of £20 that gives access to all of our work. You can then sign up and for termly workshops and holiday activities throughout the year. Our productions in the Autumn and at Christmas usually require an audition, but we do our best to include as many people as possible. Fees are then payable for each project.
