Youth Theatre

Kingsley Players have always had a thriving youth contingent, performing in pantomimes and musicals over the years, but there were no real opportunities for our young members after this.

In January 2016, Jake Powell, Tom Hayes and Ellie Hamer met and founded Kingsley Players Youth Theatre. The group is for children and young people aged seven to eighteen, and has a thriving membership.
