Parsnips Youth Theatre is committed to young people. It is our aim to provide a fun and friendly environment for our members to learn theatre practice, acting, confidence, team work and social skills.
Parsnips runs weekly classes for 8 - 12 year olds and 13 - 18 year olds with each group putting on an annual show. The majority of shows we do are original scripts (although we do occasionally tackle the likes of Shakespeare and Moliere) created by the groups in their sessions and scripted by Parsnips Director Claire Parsons.
Parsnips helps to educate young people in theatre practice as well as confidence, social skills and team building skills and every year we put on several originally written plays that the cast help create as well as a smattering of pre-written productions including Shakespeare and Moliere! No experience is necessary - that's what we're here for!
We even have members directing, running the backstage area and some technical elements of the show if that's an area that interests them.
Parsnips Youth Theatre is open to anyone with any level of experience and is a great opportunity to learn new skills and make new friends.
