Soho Theatre Young Company. Not everything we do is for adults…


We also run theatre and comedy workshops for young people.

Currently, we’re all about our Theatremakers course for 11-16 year olds in Waltham Forest. We’ve been running the programme since 2014 and currently are based at Connaught School for Girls in Leytonstone. The course is led and directed by Lynette Linton, a theatre director from Leytonstone who attended Connaught School for Girls herself.
Over the ten week course, you get to meet and learn from Lynette and others in the industry, as you collaborate with other young artists from the Waltham Forest borough. At the end of course we invite your friends and family to watch a performance of the work you’ve created.

This term, Theatremakers will be taking place on Wednesday nights, at Connaught School for Girls in Leytonstone at the times listed below. The course costs £50, with a limited number of bursaries available.
