The Young Theatre Company is based at The Acorn Theatre in Worksop, North Nottinghamshire. Established over 28 years ago, we have grown to become one of the UK’s largest youth theatres, and pride ourselves on being different! We strive to be affordable and accessible, with experienced tutors delivering high quality tuition and professionally polished productions!


Our weekly, hour-long Theatre Classes are an exciting mix of drama, dance, singing and fun. Taught be experienced professionals, children quickly develop their performing skills as they work towards large-scale productions on stage at The Acorn Theatre!


Our professionally polished performances make every pupil and parent proud. We perform various productions a year on a professional theatre stage, and with professionally trained and hugely experience directors at the helm, showtime is always spectacular!


We aim to be accessible to all youngsters, regardless of experience or ability. Part of that is keeping our fees affordable so that everyone can take part. Not only that, our fees include scripts, additional rehearsals, performances AND show costumes!

What makes us so special?

Lisa Crossland Parent

I've had the pleasure of watching my youngest flourish under your expert love, guidance and support. We've watched him grow from a shy child who couldn't remember the words and actions, to a confident, funny half of the comedy duo with his life long pal. What The Young Theatre Company gives our children sets them up for life, and I'm eternally grateful.

I just want to say a huge thank you to The Young Theatre Company for including Leah in the classes and the show. It really means a lot that even though she has a disability she can still be included. A disability doesn't have to define you and Leah certainly showed that tonight. The show was amazing, and every single person in it!

I can’t describe how much my boys gain by way of self esteem, confidence, singing, acting and dancing skills whilst having the best time. If you want the same for your kids, get booked on this fabulous youth theatre in Worksop! PS I am not on commission, it is just the best out of school activity ever. Both our kids describe the theatre as a second home!
