The Turrets Youth Theatre has provided drama-based workshops, activities and performances for almost 20 years in Barnard Castle and the surrounding area of Teesdale.

From its early days as part of The Castle Players, in 2013 we registered as an independent not-for-profit organisation, committed to delivering unique opportunities for young people within the Teesdale area. Working with children from the age of 7, The Turrets has provided formative experiences for hundreds of young people throughout the region. With many of our alumni now pursuing careers in theatre and the wider arts, we pride our selves as a launching pad for creativity, providing young people with a safe and supportive environment in which to build confidence, experience and attitude!

Juniors (4 pm - 5:30 pm)

Open to ages 7 - 9 years, The Juniors act as an introduction to theatre. Providing a nurturing and safe environment in which to explore the world, the regular weekly sessions are full of fun and games, building confidence and trust amongst the group - core skills in life as well as on the stage.

Seniors (5.30 pm - 7 pm)

Open to ages 10 - 18, The Seniors acts to bridge the gap between primary and secondary school - an important time in any child's life, where support and familiarity are invaluable. The group sessions develop key acting skills and explore different techniques and methods through focussed rehearsals and productions. 

Through devised and scripted work the group work together to develop imaginative and original performances, equipping members with invaluable experiences both on and off stage.
