Young Theatricals (YTs) is Ipswich Little Theatre Society’s drama group for teens, 13 – 18 years old. We meet on Saturday afternoons, 1pm4pm, in the Jean Pratt Building. For any information regarding Young Theatricals in 2020 and beyond, please contact Kyle & Samantha at youngtheatricals@gmail.com.

Run by convenors Kyle Breese and Samantha Johnson, and assisted by former student Candice Statham, YTs aims to teach students performance skills and provides opportunities to showcase their talents throughout the year. Students will learn about character development, how to create and manipulate mood and tension in their performances, vocal skills, physical characteristics and expression, and more!

Young Theatricals is operated as a free form, safe environment for teenagers to explore and express their creativity through theatre. We cover the Elements of Drama (which is often covered in the high school curriculum, however we approach it a little differently) and other role play based topics.

Performance dates and show information for 2020 are below.
