Camden Youth Theatre

Camden People’s Theatre and New Diorama Theatre have joined forces to set up a brilliant new Youth Theatre.

Camden Youth Theatre introduces local young people aged 13-19 to the skills they need to make their own inventive new theatre. They’ll work with top professional theatre makers, creating new shows and performing at two of London’s best studio theatres: Camden People’s Theatre and New Diorama Theatre.

In the last two years, CYT have created and presented two major new shows: We Wanted to be the Sky and NOISE.

Held on Monday evenings during term-time, the Youth Theatre was established in response to local demand for a creative club for young people. The sessions are completely free to attend.

Camden Youth Theatre is led by Gemma Rowan, who has extensive experience working with young people. She is co-director of celebrated young company Sounds Like Chaos, and is a professional theatre maker with her company Mingbeast. Gemma will work with the young people of CYT to form a company producing exciting and accessible theatre.

CYT Monday sessions are at DIORAMA ARTS CENTRE, Drummond St 6:30pm – 9pm
