Tolethorpe Youth Drama

Nestled in the heart of the countryside, Tolethorpe Youth Drama is a magical, creative and stimulating place.

We provide a full, immersive programme of drama and acting training for 5 – 18 year olds. Inspiration and imagination is at the heart of all our work and students of all ages are united through a shared love of theatre, the power of stories and how they are told.

Our teachers bring a background in the professional industry, a wealth of knowledge, extensive experience in their craft, combined with a passion and skill for making inspirational theatre.

Throughout the year specialist workshops, master-classes and events are led by visiting industry practitioners, in areas such as Stage-Combat, Singing, Physical Theatre, Dance, Shakespeare and TV & Film.

Our innovative productions take place in a variety of theatres and settings throughout the year.

Tolethorpe Youth Drama is an integral part of the renowned Stamford Shakespeare Company and benefits greatly from its association with the Company and its outstanding facilities on our doorstep, including the stunning Rutland Open Air Theatre.
