Creating Adventurous Theatre

About Trilby Cat Theatre

Trilby Cat Theatre Company is a not for profit Community Interest Company.

We create high quality innovative drama and theatre experiences for young people around the Tyneside area. We provide opportunities for young people to develop skills through diverse programmes that are educational, absorbing and challenging, promoting equality, diversity and inclusion.

There is something for everyone at Trilby Cat Theatre, no matter what level of knowledge, skill or confidence.

Trilby Cat Theatre is different because we are not a large franchise, we operate in and for the young people of our community. Class sizes are purposefully small in order to provide the necessary attention and encouragement that young people deserve in order to flourish.

We understand young people, we know that making theatre and using drama skills are about much more than a performance. We value creativity and imagination and encourage young people to explore the things that are important to them.

At Trilby Cat Theatre, we teach young people to be adventurous using drama and theatre skills which encourages self-expression, collaboration and above all creativity and imagination.

We do recognise that some children want to gain qualifications and offer LAMDA preparation for those who are interested in pursuing an internationally recognised qualification but this is not a compulsory part of the classes.

Our work includes a host of drama and arts based activities such as weekly youth theatre workshops, after school clubs, workshops in schools and community projects.
