Welcome to Shropshire Youth Theatre
The award winning Shropshire Youth Theatre (SYT) was established in 1993 as a not-for-profit organisation that provides acting workshops and productions led by professionals that volunteer their time for the company. Now attracting students from across Shropshire and beyond, Shropshire Youth Theatre continues its legacy of providing high quality productions of traditional drama and classic texts. From Shakespeare to Chekov, Brook to Sheridan, SYT offers students a vast range of daring productions with challenging and exciting roles for both new beginners and more experienced students.
SYT prides itself on being the only youth theatre in the country to be run by an annually elected student committee who make decisions on everything from future performances to publicity and sponsorship. To take a look at the current members of the committee, please click here.
SYT provides activities for children and young adults. Our Junior group (between 7 and 13 years) are taught basic performance and devising techniques, and take part in a range of performance opportunities from annual sketch shows to street theatre events. Senior students (between 13 and 25) take part in a large scale production staged at Shrewsbury’s Theatre Severn, along with various events during the summer term.
SYT Beginners (6 years+) meets on a Saturday morning (9:30am – 11am) at The Hive in Shrewsbury.
SYT Juniors (9 years+) meets on a Saturday morning (11am – 1pm) at The Hive in Shrewsbury.
SYT Seniors meets (13 years+) on a Thursday evening (7 – 9.30) at The Hive in Shrewsbury.
