Tim Bray Youth Theatre is an opportunity for your children to become actively engaged with our professional theatre company and provides a chance for them to grow up with us.
Our fun Weekly Drama Classes and Extraordinarily Creative Classes (for autistic and neurodivergent children and teens) nurture creativity and confidence and give an understanding of drama and theatre skills. They also offer an opportunity to watch a rehearsal of Tim Bray Theatre Company's upcoming show and engage with professionals actors.
Our holiday programme, Hit the Stage!, is a 5-day creative escape for budding young actors, culminating in a performance of an original show for family and friends.
It is part of our kaupapa that our Youth Theatre programmes be accessible to, and inclusive of, people from diverse communities, particularly those who are physically disabled or have access needs, blind or low vision, Deaf or hard of hearing, or neurodivergent.
Locations: Central City, North Shore and East Auckland
