Best Shot Youth Theatre, established in 1980, was a pioneer in the field of drama workshops and drama summer schools - especially the idea of doing a show in a week.

For information about courses and shows we have done in the past, please
see our resumé. You might also be interested to read some of the many comments we have received from students and parents.

We currently organise a variety of drama classes, and acting and theatre activities. All of our drama classes and productions are staffed by professional theatre workers and musicians. At present there is also a state-qualified teacher on site at all times.

Our objective is to provide an enriching experience.

We give solid training in acting and other stage skills, stimulate creativity, provide an exciting initiation into theatre and hope to fire students with passion and enthusiasm.

We strive to develop self-discipline, reliability, co-operation, self-respect and the desire to reach for excellence.

We also provide an opportunity to make new friends with similar interests, and, for those at single sex schools, to work with people of another gender.

Saturday Drama Workshops

Regular 90 minute drama classes for ages 5 - 19 in separate age groups.
Theatre games and improvisation designed to improve acting skills, build confidence, develop communication skills and make new friends.

All classes are taught by theatre professionals.

Six sessions each term. Hard work and fun!

Now enrolling for next term.

Summer, Easter and Christmas Productions

These full-time, six-day drama holiday courses provide an opportunity to participate in a show (as a perfomer or stage manager) with a professional production team in a professionally equipped theatre.
An intensive rehearsal period is followed by a performance. The week is very exciting and rewarding, but requires both energy and enthusiasm.


We are not in the business of producing 'stars', but some of our ex-students now work in professional theatre and television.
Regular students may be invited to join a leading children's and young actors' agency with which we have close links.

Best Shot offer a quality product, and we have students who have been with us for over ten years.
