Youth Groups

Programmes StageXchange and NextStage serving disadvantaged communities and groups for young people in specific circumstances, such as young carers and looked after children.


The programme includes a series of 6-12 drama-based workshops (tailored to suit your needs), a group visit to see a West End show and workshops delivered by expert Creative Practitioners in your youth group setting.

StageXchange aims to inspire young people who might not have done any drama previously and to help participants develop confidence, communication and creativity.
Groups who have participated in StageXchange will have the opportunity to expand on their experience and take part in Next Stage.

Next Stage is a 6-part programme which uses drama to help participants develop their aims for their own 'next stage'.

From interview techniques to pitching and presentation skills, the focus is on developing participants’ employability through discussion and drama-based activities, including role-play.
