CYTO SESSIONS

"A family of passionate young people who want to make a positive difference in the world of theatre"

Athena, Drama Workshop Member

All CYTO sessions are run by trained theatre professionals and volunteers who are passionate about young people, theatre and fun! Sessions are planned and adapted around the needs of our young people, who have a huge part to play in selecting themes, scripts and styles of theatre that they wish to learn and perform. Productions and sharings are performed in our theatre space to offer a taste of a professional theatre experience. We are a creative space dedicated to young people that is fun, affordable and inclusive.

 

CYTO membership costs £60.00 per term. Membership enables you access to any of the workshops that are suitable for your age group for example you could be in ACT THREE and CREW for your £60.00 membership. Bursary places are available for those from low-income families. 

 

We run an open-door policy at CYTO, which means it's possible to join at any point during a term. Additionally, we offer one free taster session to any young person who wants to try a session out before they commit to signing up.

 

If you have any questions prior to signing up please email admin@cyto.org.ukThere's no audition to join our workshops, just register!
