Take the next step with Dramacube’s Youth Theatre!

For students aged 13 – 18 years there is an exciting opportunity to develop their performing arts skills in our Youth Theatre. 

Our acting company perform two full-scale productions at purpose-built theatres each year and participate in a West End showcase during the summer term.  In addition, our talented young actors regularly receive invitations to perform at festivals and events. 

Students work in studios used by university drama students where they rehearse for performances and attend classes. 

There are also opportunities to work with industry professionals at regular workshops throughout the year, where students enjoy an intense two-day musical theatre experience resulting in a performance under the lights.  

Our Youth Theatre provides the perfect environment for students to forge new friendships, participate in creative, high-quality productions and, for those who want to, take one step closer to becoming a professional performer.   

Recent productions and events include: Legally Blonde Jr at Hampton Hill Theatre & Esher Theatre, Oliver Jr at Hampton Hill Theatre, DRAMACUBE TEN at Wonderville West End & Richmond Live 

Dramacube are affiliated to Rotten Orphans talent agency who now represent many of our students working in film, television and theatre.

This Spring, our Youth Theatre Group will be getting their teeth into something bigger and tastier than ever before….

Dramacube are pleased to present Charlie and the Chocolate Factory officially licenced from Musical Theatre International.

Based on the famous novel by Roald Dahl, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory features an original score which also cleverly pays homage to the original film classics such as “Candy Man,” “I’ve Got a Golden Ticket,” and the “Oompa Loompa Song,”. This crowd-pleasing, outrageous musical has both a longer performance time and plenty of delicious parts. 
Charlie and the Chocolate Factory is a truly a golden ticket for our youth theatre to perform at Hampton Hill Theatre!

Term starts Friday 12th January 2024 with weekly rehearsals every Friday 5pm – 7.15pm at St Marys University, Twickenham.
