We are delighted to announce that we will be launching our very own Youth Theatre in September 2017. The programme is aimed at young people from across Merseyside aged 14-19.
The Epstein Youth Theatre will provide interested and like-minded youths with the opportunity to experience everything that the world of theatre has to offer, from one of the city’s most popular venues. Weekly workshops will help to develop strong, confident and versatile young performers, and provide them with the opportunity to explore new skills in a safe and welcoming environment.
Led by experienced theatre technicians all the hard work will lead to two performances each year, where all the stars of tomorrow will step out on to the Epstein Theatre stage.
Those interested in joining are encouraged to attend the audition; successful teens will then be offered a place to join the youth theatre, for a small termly fee of just £10 per session. The theatre will also be awarding four free scholarships per year to suitable candidates, making our Youth Theatre accessible to as many talented young people as possible.

Theatre manager, Rebekah Pichilingi, said: “We all know that Liverpool is full to the brim of young talent, and our new Youth Theatre will welcome those individuals who wish to learn the craft of theatre. It will give them first-hand stage experience from leading theatre practitioners who will help develop crucial skills for young people interested in a career in the theatre, or just looking to have some fun and learn new skills. Everyone at The Epstein Theatre is looking forward to this exciting new venture and we cannot wait to meet our auditionees!”
