We offer young people aged 11-18 the opportunity to perform on the main stages for both Mayflower Theatre and MAST Mayflower studios through our Youth Projects. In both projects, young people work with a professional creative team, taking a show from the first read through to final performances. These intensive rehearsal periods give participants a great opportunity to learn more about the performing arts whilst working to a common goal and making new friends. There are opportunities for performers and off-stage roles in the company.
Phone or email us with any questions you may have.
