CLYDEBUILT YOUTH THEATRE

Professional-level productions and coaching

Clydebuilt Youth Theatre is for performers aged 5 - 15. As well as being given the opportunity to participate in our main productions, children will learn, create and perform in their very own production.

With a focus on fun, they will learn and develop technique in acting, singing and dance as well in their performance technique. Your child will be part of the creative process in selecting what numbers will be performed in their show. We will work with them on a one-to-one basis to develop their performance.

We will identify your child's strengths and areas for development, working on each of these on an individual basis. We can also give you feedback on their progress, which you can observe for yourself at the performance stage.

We really enjoy this aspect of our work as we can see their confidence and ability grow as we work with them. Your child will get a lot out of joining us and we will get a lot out of working with them. Whatever their reason for joining, they will develop personally as well as technically as part of Clydebuilt Youth Theatre.

You can register your child with us by signing up. If you have any questions, please contact us and we will get back to you with more information. You can visit our Join Us page for more information on joining our company.

Everyone gets their moment

Every show is different, but it can be difficult to be enthusiastic if you don't have a lot to do, and difficult to sell tickets to people if they won't see you on stage. We will make sure that everyone gets their chance to shine on the stage. Principals will be mentored in a safe and comfortable environment that will allow them to feel fully prepared and secure in performing their role on stage. Every other member of the cast is just as important - we cannot stress this enough. Everyone will be given something meaningful to do in scenes or ensemble numbers. These are often the parts that steal a show! We will work with each member of the cast to make the most of their part.

Being part of the creative team

We know that many of the people who come to join us already have a wealth of experience on and offstage, and we want to make sure everyone has opportunities to share their experience.

We will always be looking for new talent to assist and gain experience with us in the creative and production team.

There are also teaching opportunities with our children's company for anyone who is interested, or who has some experience, in teaching singing, acting or dancing. There are also assistant and mentoring positions for anyone looking to be part of our backstage crew. Please contact us or speak to one of our directors for more information.

Understudies

Understudies are an essential part of planning a good production. Wherever possible, we will cast understudies for key roles in each show. We believe this is an important way of nurturing talent and potential within the company, as well as ensuring that the show must go on. If you are cast as an understudy, you will receive the same level of mentoring as your counterpart. Whenever possible, we will endeavour to have at least one performance where the understudy cast will perform. We will make sure that you are fully prepared for your Peggy Sawyer moment.
