Discover & develop your comedy, theatre making, cabaret & drag with us.

The thing is we all start somewhere. Come discover what you’re into. With us.

From sketch comedy to playwriting, theatre making, cabaret and drag. Learn to create or further develop a new piece of work – your work – in the genre you love, for the stage.

Our courses are led by working theatre professionals, writers, comedians and members of our Artistic Team. And the best bit, they’re for ages 11 and up.


SYC alumni include: Amrou Al-Kadhi • Natasha Marshall • Jack Rooke • Charlotte Josephine • Matilda Ibini • Phoebe Éclair-Powell • Milly Thomas • Kitten Killers • Huge Davies • Kai Samra


Applications are currently open for the next term starting in May 2019 – please check individual sections for details.
