Doorstep Youth Theatre

Mondays 7-9pm
Stage Left, Palace Theatre, Paignton

Doorstep Youth Theatre is an audition-based company for young people aged 14 – 20 who aspire to be professional theatre makers. The group works as a repertory ensemble on a project-by-project basis alongside professional artists to create original theatre. In the past, they’ve created original musicals (Grit, Out of the Woods), and bespoke performances such Rumpus, as well as their ongoing youth-written and youth-directed project in 2022: White Moon. 

This group is audition-only, but you do not have to be a performer to be an ensemble member. DYT is open to musicians, dancers, technicians, designers, actors, directors and writers. We approach all projects with a complete team, and would really encourage those interested in behind-the-scenes roles to contact us.

 

If you are aged 14-20 years and you are interested in being part of the Doorstep Youth Theatre ensemble for the Summer Term, please sign up to our audition on Monday 25 April, 7pm-9pm. This term we will be exploring themes relating to our partnership with incredible actor, composer and musician John Pfumojena who is touring his production to Torbay in June as part of the Collaborative Touring Network and would love DYT to be part of it. John’s invitation is for Torbay to engage with his culture whilst sharing its own, contributing to a final performance.

In the audition, local dance artist Clare Parker, will facilitate a movement workshop for DYT scored by a music track created by John. If successful in the audition, you will then be invited to performances at The Spanish Barn, Torre Abbey on 15 or 16 June 2022 (times and details TBC).

Entry to our DYT group is based on audition-only, but you do not have to be a performer to be an ensemble member. DYT is open to musicians, dancers, technicians, designers, actors, directors and writers. We approach all projects with a complete team, and would really encourage those interested in behind-the-scenes roles to contact us.
