Due to the coronavirus pandemic, the Musical Theatre Youth Programme is currently suspended. We hope to get the programme up and running again as soon as it’s safe to do so.
Our popular Musical Theatre Youth Programme, split into Juniors (ages 7 -11), Intermediates (ages 11-14) and Seniors (ages 14-19), meets every Saturday.
Led by industry professionals and inspired by both popular classics and contemporary musicals, the groups are inclusive and open to all abilities, developing skills in singing, dancing and acting and working towards public performances.
Based at one of the busiest theatres in the UK, participants get a sneak peek in to the workings of a real theatre with opportunities to go on backstage tours, work with our Associate Artists and visiting companies, and get discounted tickets to see what’s on.
In July 2019, we presented a spectacular showcase in our Patrick Studio celebrating the Hippodrome’s 120th anniversary, bringing the theatre’s dynamic and diverse history to life through acting, dance and song. The production included pieces from The Lion King, Billy Elliot, Twelfth Night, Hairspray and Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat.
