Younger People

At Nottingham Playhouse, we believe that theatre is for everyone. Theatre gives us a chance to examine human experience, to look at our lives and the lives of other people; it encourages us to ask questions about the world we live in.

It is important that young people in particular have the opportunity not just to see theatre, but to make it. As part of our commitment to place young people at the heart of what we do, Nottingham Playhouse offers a variety of engaging groups to take part in and enjoy.
