Is your child aged 12-18? Are they looking to push their theatre skills further? Follow in the footsteps of our professionals with the Guildford Shakespeare YOUNG Company.

A new weekly course for 12-18 year olds, our young company members will devise and rehearse a new play inspired by Shakespeare's work, to be performed as part of our Birthday Bash season in 2017.

The course will be led by GSC’s Head of Education and resident playwright, Ant Stones (The Wind in the Willows, Alice in Wonderland, Grimm’s Fairy Tales). In addition, each member of the company will receive a GSC mentor, who will provide one-on-one acting sessions throughout the course.

The course is split into three phases. Phase 1 will focus on devising the script through practical exercises. Phase 2 will rehearse and improve the completed script. Phase 3 will complete the course with technical and dress rehearsals before the final public performance.

GSYC is held at the GSC building, Midleton Road, Guildford. The course is designed so children can join at the beginning of Phase 1 or Phase 2. Auditions will be held if the course becomes over-subscribed.
