Camden Youth Theatre

New Diorama Theatre has joined forces with Camden People's Theatre to run a brilliant Youth Theatre for the Camden area.

Camden Youth Theatre is completely free to attend and introduces local young people aged 13-19 to the skills they need to make their own inventive new theatre. CYT work with top professional theatre makers, creating new shows and performing at two of London's best studio theatres: here at New Diorama Theatre and Camden People's Theatre.

Weekly rehearsals are held on Monday evenings during term-time, and are completely free to attend. Camden Youth Theatre was established in response to local demand for a creative club for young people.

Gemma works with our local young residents to produce exciting and accessible theatre, the company work collaboratively to create performances that specifically showcase their views and voices.
