The Customs House Youth Theatre is for 10 to 21 year olds with an interest in theatre, devising and acting. Each year we perform two pieces of new writing through our Junior and Senior Groups at The Customs House, learn new skills and develop confidence.
The Customs House Youth Theatre is open to all young people aged between 10 and 21 years old with an interest in theatre, devising and acting. The Youth Theatre meet each Friday in term time and produce two original performances each year. There are two groups: Juniors for 10-15 years and Seniors for 15-21 years.
The Seniors have been part of the National Theatre Connections Festival since 2011, performing at The Customs House, Northern Stage and The National Theatre. Connections is the National Theatre’s annual festival of new plays for youth theatres and schools.
Established in 2009, we have had the pleasure of working with hundreds of children and young people to develop their skills in theatre, gaining confidence and lifelong friendships.
We are preparing to re-start our sessions from September 21.

We are delighted to be supported through The Andrew Lloyd Webber Foundation.
The Port of Tyne is proud to support The Customs House as a sponsor of projects which help young people gain confidence and skills towards employment.
