Children and Young People

Here at the Tron, Children and young people can explore, discover, learn, experiment and collaborate with professional artists, learning through a range of theatre arts in a safe workshop environment.  More importantly, there’s the chance to meet new people and- above all- have a lot of fun!

Classes are divided into 6 age ranges: pre 5s, 4-6 yrs, 7-10 yrs, 11-13 yrs, 14-17 yrs and 18-25 yrs.

Pre-5s
Tiny and Tall Tales

Stories, props, music, movement and a whole lot of fun.......

Tiny and Tall Tales sessions help to develop essential and desirable life skills and encourage little imaginations to flourish whilst helping prepare your child for the formal learning experiences nursery and school will provide. Best of all, our early years classes require parent and child participation, so you get to join in and share the magical experience too!

Tall Tales 11.30am (2-4 yrs)

Classes run weekly on Saturdays during term time:

Tron Young Company is an excellent way to bridge the gap between youth theatre and the professional theatre industry. Tron Young Company devise and perform new work; try out material through scratch performances and participate in workshops and masterclasses with some of the UK’s top theatre professionals. Tron Theatre has been supporting young theatre makers through the Young Company for eight years. Former company members have gone on to study, successfully work within the theatre industry and form their own theatre companies.

‘To anyone thinking about taking part in Young Company 100% do it - you won’t regret it! You’ll learn so much, meet some brilliant people, gain new skills and confidence and if you want a career in the arts it will definitely help open doors for you.’ Sarah Miele, professional actor
