Key Youth Theatre (KYT)

Back to Activities

Key Youth Theatre (KYT), run by Kindred Drama, offers young people aged 18 months – 18+ years the opportunity to develop both their performance skills and build their confidence at the Key Theatre’s very own purpose-built facilities.

This activity is good for wellbeing because

  • It is a safe space for young people to explore theatre and themselves as individuals in a supportive environment
  • It’s a place to learn new skills, have fun and make friends for LIFE!
  • They provide physically, mentally and emotionally stimulating activities in every session throughout the year to build confidence and self-esteem.

‘We love Kindred! An amazing group of people who work exceptionally hard to consistently encourage, support and provide brilliant opportunities for their young people’

‘An amazing experience for all who have a passion for performing arts what ever their age. I have watched young people totally grow and blossom in self- esteem, confidence and total enjoyment with the amazing leadership, talent and enthusiasm that just pours out from the dedicated, professional staff. I have had the privilege of seeing this happen through 2 generations of my family. I totally recommend it.’
