Based in Leeds, West Yorkshire, we are the oldest established Children's Theatre group in the UK. Our members (not just children, adults too) have a great time bringing live theatre to many young people for the very first time. Many of the plays we produce are based on well known children's literature, and it's magical to see them off the page and onto the stage.
Productions & Public Performances
Leeds Children's Theatre stage two productions each year at the Carriageworks Theatre (a purpose built theatre in the centre of Leeds, West Yorkshire). These are usually performed in spring (March/April) and late autumn (November).
The society produces plays and 'plays with music' that are suitable for children and their families. Many of our productions are popular with teachers and we welcome school groups as well as families and friends.
Our productions will usually involve a mixed cast of adults and children, depending upon the requirements of the play.
The society runs a popular weekly Saturday morning Drama Workshop, mainly for our younger members, which offers an excellent introduction to our activities and includes drama games and lots of improvisation work. The minimum age to attend is currently eight years and there is a waiting list for places. Our waiting list for places is open to children aged 7 & over.
Our monthly workshops for members aged 13+. The group is smaller, usually with a dozen or so attendees, and offers our youth and older members a time and space to work together on scripts and other projects.
The waiting list for our Saturday Morning Workshops is now OPEN!
