BYT introduction

 

Bigfoot Youth Theatre (BYT) prides itself on uncovering the mystery of imagination in every young person who walks through our doors by delivering a unique programme of theatre making courses. BYT workshops are open for all young people to experience. All you need is a willingness to play and enjoy.

In a world of increasing pressures at school, home and society, BYT offers young people a refuge to be themselves, develop their resilience, artistry and skills in search of their inner Bigfoot – that elusive, playful being at the centre of us all!

Our students are known as Bigfooters…intrepid explorers of their imaginations and each of them will take a big step into the unknown and discover the magical world of theatre making.

Our unique programme combines performance training, storytelling and the visual arts. In a nutshell this means students take part in inspirational workshops that explore acting & theatre styles, then putting those skills into action to tell their stories and how to bling up their stories through scenic design, costume and prop making. Essentially, Bigfooters create their own little theatre company with very big ideas!

Our course leaders and facilitators are highly trained industry professionals with experience of theatre craft and conflict resolution promoting collaboration and encouragement at all times.

Our Bigfooters shall become confident storytellers and receive hands-on experience in all areas of creating and putting on a play. They will learn lots of skills and make lifelong friendships along the way!
