Reading Rep’s Youth Theatre gives children and young people the opportunity to hone and develop their performance skills in a creative and fun environment. The Engage Officers leading the sessions will support members in growing their confidence and challenging them to be bold, creative and passionate in their work. Participants have the opportunity to share their work through showings and productions at the end of each term. We also aim to offer exciting opportunities to members where possible with theatre trips, masterclasses, and casting opportunities. We also run sessions exclusively for neurodivergent young people or people with disabilities.



Reading Rep’s Young Company is a space which gives emerging artists the opportunity to explore and hone their theatre practice with the support of a professional theatre company. Members explore aspects of theatre, from acting technique, devising, writing, and rehearsal process. We aim to promote individual voices and provide a platform for experimentation and innovation in performance, creating vibrant and exciting work each term.
