To create high quality theatre for the young people of Shaw and surrounding areas and bring through the next generation of actors, directors and volunteers to Crompton Stage Society.
We cater for young people who want to pursue a career in theatre and for those who want to just raise their confidence, make new friends and act for fun.
Training is provided by a fully quality drama facilitator.
We offer tuition in many forms and schools of drama including:
Comedy, improvisation, Shakespeare, issue based, devising, script, specific theatre practitioners, contemporary performance to name a few!
The theme changes every term with a show back at the end of each to showcase the skills learnt.
We produce a full scale production in the summer term with the full force of the theatres resources behind it.
We offer open auditions to eligible students for our adult society – Crompton Stage Society – when we need actors under 18 years of age. So far our students have been involved in:
A Little Local Difficulty
The Vicar of Dibley
Students attend as many sessions as possible especially during production terms.
All young people understand our mission and values and follow them.
Trust us. Our team understand what is suitable for your child and that we always try to be as equal as possible. Casting is never based on 'favourites' or who is 'best' for the role. Our casting is always based on what is best for your young person we see them as unique individuals.
Apart from our paid drama facilitator, PH2Youth is by volunteers. Please bear this in mind if communication is not as prompt and efficient as you might expect although we really do try our best to provide a professional service. If you would like to help out we are always looking for people to support us in different ways.
PH2 Youth has been running since January 2013. The first youth theatre leader was Becky Proudfoot and Matt Baker took over in 2014. We currently cater for three age groups (6-9, 10-13, 14-18), with one session for each age group on Saturday mornings. Workshops run termly and each term consists of 10 workshops with a showback on week 10 when we invite friends and families to watch a short presentation of what the students have been working on. Within a short space of time our numbers have increased rapidly and there is now a waiting list for some age groups.
