THE HARLEQUIN YOUTH THEATRE IS RAN BY LAURA ELIZABETH WHO WORKS AS A FREE LANCE YOUTH THEATRE LEADER AND DIRECTOR. SHE IS ASSISTED IN WORKSHOPS BY ADAM WADE.
The Harlequin Players Club first formed in 1946, in September 2013 we expanded the membership of our theatre and opened the doors to our first official youth section. Our youth theatre meets every saturday during term time for sessions starting 11am until 1pm at the theatre.
the youth theatre is a group of entusiastic and talented 6 to 18 year olds, supported by laura elizabeth and adam wade. our member usually don't want to leave when they turn 18 and so they have the opportunity to present new writing for the group to perform or help as a member of the production team. the youth theatre gives all members the opportunity to learn skills on and off the stage.
in january 2018 we performed peter pan in four sell out shows - we were turning people away at the door performances! click on link below to see picture of the production and to meet our cast and creative team
