The aim of the St Ives Youth Theatre is to provide young people who are currently in secondary education with opportunities to develop their performance skills through a variety of communication methods.
Through working in all areas of stage craft - including the support of performances through stage-management, technical support, marketing, costumes and make-up - young people are encouraged to develop the self-confidence and personal qualities that will sustain them through life. Team-working, self-respect and respect for others are key to our ethos.
As well as developing performance skills and rehearsing, we organise trips to amateur and professional productions as well as educational visits to encourage understanding of the issues behind the pieces performed.
We currently present two productions each year - one in the first quarter of the year and the major production late in the summer term. The major production involves all the regular members of the Youth Theatre in the cast. We also involve many other young people at this time - either volunteers recruited through local schools or previous members
We are always in need of time, funding and enthusiasm - If you would like to be a show sponsor or can offer educational or theatrical tuition, please call Jonathan on 07939 213771, Mik on 07855 807120 or send us your contact details (including a phone number) by email to
VISION played a huge part in the St. Ives festival this summer when the town’s youth theatre rocked out the tunes to packed audiences over four days.
The local press have paid a huge tribute to the production and their comments and further reviews will be published here shortly.
VISION has recently been featured on BBC Radio Cambridge and the St. Ives’ cast and composer Dominic Hartley have been interviewed on programmes.
