It's the time of year for our annual Youth Theatre and we wish we could get together as much as you do! We really want to keep our creative workshops and adventures going during this hard time. So, we have decided social distancing can't keep us apart!

We’ve got some exciting online drama activities lined up for two months of Youth Theatre, completely FREE. It’s a great place for you to develop your drama experience, communication skills, meet other young deaf people and learn more about getting involved in theatre. And you don’t even have to leave the house (though we know you want to!).

There are two groups to choose from:

  • February Group
  • March Group

Or you can do both!

    On 15th January and 31st March we have two bonus online panels with deaf professionals who will answer all your questions and share their industry experiences


    What will I get out of taking part?

    • You will learn a range of performance skills.
    • You'll work with professional theatre-makers and gain a wide range of skills.
    • Meet other deaf and hearing young people with similar interests and make new friends.
    • You will also learn communication and team building skills

    Do I need previous experience?

    • No. We welcome newcomers, so no previous experience is required. The Audition Workshop is your opportunity to see if DYC is for you and our opportunity to see if you are right for the group. 

    Will there be breaks?

    • There will be plenty of breaks throughout the day. Being on Zoom for long periods of time can be tiring so we will make sure that we schedule lots of breaks and add more if you need.

    How will the workshops work?

    • You will need to a have Zoom downloaded on your computer with a webcam. You will get more from the session if you use a computer rather than your phone.

    Will the Zoom workshops be secure? 

    • We take the security of online activity very seriously and the Zoom workshops will take place on Deafinitely Theatre's secure Zoom account which is password protected. There will be two DBS checked staff members of the zoom at all times and participants will not be able to record sessions on their computer. To find out more about our safeguarding, please see out Safeguarding Policy. 

    Do I need to attend every session

    • You will get the most out of DYT by attending all of the sessions and we urge you to commit as much as possible.
