acta youth theatres are provided for young people who don’t normally get involved in drama & theatre for one or more of the following reasons:
- They don’t think they’re good enough
- They don’t feel that confident
- Their parents can’t afford it
- English isn’t their first language
- They find it hard to make friends
- They can’t access other groups easily
- They don’t attend any other after school drama groups.
To take part in an acta group, please book a place by completing an enquiry form, or calling the acta office.
Young carers aged 10-18 yrs, living in South, Central & East Bristol are welcome to join our young carers‘ youth theatre, which normally meets weekly in term-time (currently online only) at the acta centre on:
Thursdays, 5.00 – 6.30pm (online workshops take place from 5 – 6pm)
The group gives young carers the opportunity to devise and perform original theatre, in a safe and exciting environment with other young people in similar situations.
Transport is provided for any young carers who would not otherwise be able to get to the acta centre.
For young carers in other areas of Bristol and beyond, there are opportunities to participate in intensive school holidays projects; once again, free transport is provided.
