Theatre in Ecclesall Woods for children and young people

Growtheatre offers opportunities for children to be introduced to theatre during the Autumn term.

Growtheatre runs three weekly youth theatre sessions on Thursday evenings during term time.  They take place in the Woodland Discovery Centre and surrounding woodlands in Ecclesall Woods.

The Youth Theatre is a great opportunity for young people to have fun, meet new friends, explore the big outdoors and learn about every part of the theatrical process. As well as acting you will learn outdoor skills, tool work, prop making, set design, devising and much more!

Growtheatre Youth Theatre runs on Thursday evenings and starts on Thursday 20 September.

  • Juniors (School Years 3 & 4): Thursday evenings in term time, 5.00 – 6.00 pm
  • Intermediates (School Years 5-7): Thursday evenings in term time, 6.05 – 7.35 pm
  • Seniors (School Year 8 +):  Thursday evenings in term time, 7.40 – 9.10 pm

VENUE:  The Discovery Centre, Woodland Discovery Centre in Ecclesall Woods, Abbey Lane, Sheffield.

The first session is free so that children and young people can see if Growtheatre is for them.
