Youth Theatre (by Sophie)

"Theatre isn’t a theatre without it’s community. The Lyceum youth theatre turn up week in and week out to play, laugh and learn about the world of theatre. They are not just a youth theatre but the future of our stages, whatever they look like post lockdown. Someone once asked me why I don’t direct ‘Real theatre’ and I told them ‘you don’t get more real than this’. My favourite moment is when young people come off stage and they cheer, laugh and whoop. Real theatre makes people feel things, in small, personal moments. Teaching LYT makes me hopeful."
