Wassail delivers two youth theatres in Somerset, in partnership with the county's leading venues.
We believe that young artists can be as creative and inventive as professional ones, and our youth theatres reflect that. Members of our youth theatres play games and use devising techniques to create their own plays about incredible Somerset.
In 2019 we piloted the Somerset Youth Theatre Festival with a performance of PEACE DAY, a story inspired by our young artists' research into the First World War in Somerset. This was made possible through a generous grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund. We are planning a countywide Somerset Youth Theatre Festival in 2020 so watch this space for more news!
New members are always welcome, and no previous experience is necessary.
We currently run youth theatre groups in the following places:
