Stage 2 Youth Theatre Company
Stage2 runs every Saturday during school term time at The Birmingham School of Acting, Millennium Point. We only run weekly sessions as we are not a Drama School, we are a Youth Theatre Company that meets weekly for 7 - 21 year olds (we cannot accept people either below or above our age limit). Each term we offer a completely varied range of options including a Production option, a General Drama workshop, a specific Skills workshop and Stage1. Our productions change each term and vary in style and period to give our members the best range of learning skills possible. Our workshops content also changes each term, again to ensure that our members are learning as much as they can. Stage2 also has a Work Experience Scheme which offers real work experience in four main areas: Marketing, Fundraising, Mentoring and Trainee Tutors. Two of these members can join straight away (Marketing and Fundraising, they run in the form of separate committees, and meet at least twice a term each). Then the other two areas take an application/invitation process (Mentoring and Trainee Tutors). We also offer LAMDA tuition for all members who want it at £9/£10 a week for an hour lesson (one on one tuition). Stage2 has a Mentor Scheme, which has been approved by the Mentoring and Befriending Foundation; we are the only Youth Theatre in the country to have such a status. As part of our Mentor Scheme all new members have a mentor buddy who they can speak to at any time and catch up with how they are finding their time in Stage2. Join in!
