OutReach: Get Involved

Classes and workshops for Young People

The SJT OutReach Department runs youth theatre classes (known as 'Rounders') - weekly sessions led by theatre professionals. Our Rounders have the opportunity to explore all areas of theatre, develop performance skills in a fun and friendly environment and get plenty of performance opportunities. The classes are great for improving confidence and communications skills. Alongside these we run a Youth Choir, holiday workshops, a yearly summer school and more!

For more information on any of these courses please contact OutReach on 01723 356696 or email us.

What do young people get out of OutReach?

“Rounders gave me the confidence to take the world head on, and now the world is at my feet, and I could not have done it without them. What every single person comments on about my work ethic, is my dedication and confidence, these are skills that Rounders gave me.”
Frankie Leach

“Go for it. Anyone with a creative ability is doing themselves a disservice by not doing it! I came back to the Youth Theatre because I wasn’t really focused on anything, then I became really involved; in how workshops were run, we’d go to theatre festivals, I’d see lots of plays, the spark was lit there.”
Billy Howle, actor 

“You have really allowed me to flourish and show my acting to its full potential.”
Alfie, Youth Theatre Member

"Just wanted to say thank you for all the hard work you and your team have put in to make this year's summer school such a wonderful experience for Tom and all the other students. Tom has loved every minute of it and, as you hoped in your programme notes, has made new friends, gained in confidence and come away with a tremendous sense of achievement. He also has a genuine desire to do it all again next year, and is already excited about moving up into the older group."
Sarah, parent
