why edinburgh youth theatre?

grow in confidence

Confidence is probably the most obvious benefit from our classes, but the power of acting and drama skills cannot be understated.

express yourself

The school curriculum is so focused on the three ‘R’s, we sometimes lose sight of the importance of developing creative and emotional expression in our young people.

develop communication skills

Learning to communicate in new and exciting ways in a safe environment helps our children bring these skills to all aspects of their lives.

become a better learner

You child will grow in confidence and awareness of how to learn and remember their parts and lines. They will take this into the classroom.

speak out!

Our drama sessions will give you life skills, learning to speak in public from an early age. Our children are encouraged to get involved in our stage and film productions.

make new friends

Let’s not underestimate the power of having fun, and our sessions are always fun and energetic. Strong and life-long bonds are forged on the stage.

what you are saying

“We love casting the kids at Edinburgh Youth Theatre. Thanks to Shauna Macdonald and her team’s excellent work, teaching the children how to trust their instincts and create vivid improvisations, EYT produces confident and highly creative child actors.”

“The youth theatre has been fantastic for our son.  The teachers are great with young people – very enthusiastic and make the whole thing fun and interesting. It has done wonders for his confidence and he has also met lots of lovely friends there.”
