Hawkes Bay Youth Theatre Classes

Term 2 Theatre classes for young people

Hawkes Bay Youth Theatre offers theatre classes for young people aged from 11 to 16 years of age (years 7/8 to year 11). Classes focus on confidence, storytelling, character and performance.

The Ensemble class is designed for students in years 6-8 (ages 10-13). In this class, foundations of key acting skills are laid down and practised while the students play a lot of drama games to encourage creative thinking and storytelling, as well as key theatre skills, in an engaging and energised way. The students of the Ensemble class will work towards a performed play throughout the course of the year, with the play generally taking place in Term 4 (October-December).

The Associates Class is designed for students in years 9 & 10, where the foundations laid down in the Ensemble are built upon and extended through games and exercises. The Associates will spend the year working on a play that will be performed in Term 4.

The core principle of the HaBYT company is whanaungatanga - the treasuring of connection, community and trust. Throughout the year, members of the HaBYT Company work closely together to develop their craft as actors and performers, with a key focus on voice, movement and character work. Company members work towards a staged theatre work which is performed later in the year. Entry to the company is by audition only. Auditions are held in December-January of each year. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have questions or would like to register your interest.
