At Senior Youth Theatre we commit to the art of performance
Our Senior Students meet for 2.5 hours on a weekly basis. They participate in professionally structured performance technique training lead by Phoenix Director Phil Dale and guest tutors drawn from the industry. Senior PYT is for young people with a genuine interest in the performing arts, especially those with the ambition to enter professional training after compulsory education.
“Drama is exposure; it is confrontation; it is contradiction and it leads to analysis, construction, recognition and eventually to an awakening of understanding.” Peter Brook
Senior PYT recognises our members as artists in their own right and, in return, we expect a high level of commitment and co-operation to the company from them. It is a positive and effective relationship and nurtures on-going success.
